Bertie (Roberta) 

SEX: Female 
AGE: 7 Years Old 
LOCATION: Stoke-on-Trent 
CHILDREN: 15 years plus 
DOGS: OK on walks, but better as only dog 
Bertie found herself in the pound after her owner sadly passed away. Other than this, we don’t have much history on Bertie. 
Bertie is a very friendly, excitable girl. She greets all her walker friends with lots of kisses and the occasional headbutt as she’s so excited to see them! She can be a little over the top with her initial greeting, but soon calms down. 
She loves being out and about on her walks and hasn’t shown any anxiety/reactions to anything she’s seen so far. Bertie likes to play and enjoys chasing after her toys, but so far cuddles are her favourite thing. 
She is a little chatterbox who likes to make lots of little noises whilst out on her walk and travelling. 
Although she is full of energy, Bertie walks beautifully on the lead without pulling. She enjoys her walks and will chat to you for most of her time out! 
Bertie has travelled in the van whilst with us and she jumped in with no hesitation. However, she was vocal on the journey to and from the vets. 
Bertie has been to the vets for a check up and routine blood tests. She ignored other dogs in the waiting room, but was very vocal whilst waiting to be seen. She was very wriggly and bouncy so it was difficult for the vets to do a thorough examination at first. She did allow the vets to do a blood draw, she wouldn’t tolerate the clippers but she didn’t show any aggression. 
Health issues: 
Bertie has had a full check-up including routine blood tests and has been given a clean bill of health. Due to having no history about her, we do not know if she is spayed. If she does come into season whilst in her new home, she must be spayed and SSC will cover the costs for this to be done. 
Ideal home: 
As we don’t have much history on Bertie, we would like someone to be around for the majority of the time. Due to her excitability, we would prefer any children to be older teenagers. 
She doesn’t react to other dogs whilst on her walk and ignores them. However, during her time at the pound she could be reactive to dogs walking past her kennel, so we would like her to be the only dog in the home. She can’t live with cats or small furries. 
Standard information: 
Bertie is fully vaccinated and microchipped. If she comes into season, she will need to be spayed and SSC will cover the costs for this to be done. 
She is currently in kennels in Stoke-On-Trent. She can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet her twice where she is at that time. 
There is an adoption donation of £120 for Bertie and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
