Friendly Berni abandoned at the park and listed as ‘urgent’

There is only one alternative that the term “urgent” could mean at the Memphis Animal Services; Berni needs help now or the future of this two-year-old mixed breed pooch will end in just a few days.

Berni’s life has not been full of love. On January 7, he was abandoned at the Shelby Farms Dog Park; his owner just turned away and left him to fend for himself. Shelter notes include:

“PLAYGROUP—
1/13I went to a playgroup with other dogs on January 13 and I was social and friendly, but sometimes I annoyed the ladies with my overtures.
1/20 Berni was friendly but socially awkward. Something about him seemed to set off the other dogs…”

Volunteers who have spent time with Berni stated he walked well on a leash, was affectionate and interested in interacting. He has lots of energy and appears to be house trained.

    PLEASE PLEASE–BERNI IS HANDSOME AND SWEET! DON’T
    LET THEM KILL HIM!

    ALSO–WHY ARE ABANDONED DOGS LISTED AS “STRAYS”?
    UNFAIR SINCE IN MANY SHELTERS “STRAYS” ARE PUT
    DOWN FAST WITH LITTLE CHANCE FOR ADOPTION!

    PLEASE–WE NEED TO GIVE “EVERY” ANIMAL “EVERY” CHANCE!
