This is the story of Ernie


The last week of April 2010, Ernie, a small tan 'piebald' Rat Terrier mix puppy, was about 9 weeks old. Ernie and his litter mate Bert (they had similar tan piebald coloring but Bert didn't have the white blaze on his forehead that Ernie had) were surrendered to Bond County Humane Society by their owners. They were from an unwanted litter, but no one told Ernie that, as he was playful as all get-out and extremely affectionate towards BCHS volunteers, vet clinic people, and anyone else who got to meet him.

December 2013 - an email from the family who adopted Ernie:

We adopted Ernie from BCHS 3 years ago. He is the brother of Bert. We wanted to adopt both, but were fortunate enough to get Ernie! Ernie loves laying in the sunshine both outside or by the window. He loves to take rides in the car and go for walks with Jessica. Ernie is a very happy and lucky dog! He has a sister named Daisy and a brother named Norman.
