Ernie is a radiant and optimistic ball of love and joy. He assumes that all people and dogs are long lost friends he hasn't met yet, and is always eager to go new places and experience new things. In fact, it's kind of tough to get a good picture of his adorable, underbite smile, since he immediately assumes you're leaning in to give him a hug and some butt scratches. Ernie is currently living in a home with other dogs, and while he enjoys their company, he's not a playmate. Although he's not in foster with kids, he's met them often, and has been incredibly loving, gentle and friendly--he's not a jumper and doesn't mouth to get attention at all. Ernie spent the majority of his life severely neglected up until now, so it's shocking how well-adjusted he is. He will always need eye drops, which is common for bulldogs, and we'd prefer he go to a home where he doesn't need to traverse many stairs, since his joints have not ben well-cared for until this point.
