Bertie: The cuddly helper
Bertie loves to help!
He loves helping in the garden – you could even say he has ‘green paws’. He likes running around on the grass, just to make sure it’s nice and flat, you see. He’s happy rolling among the flowers, to check for weeds, obviously. But his favourite garden activity is re-potting plants, even if they didn’t need re-potting. How helpful!
He’s also helpful indoors, especially during laundry time. The most helpful thing he does is to take dirty socks and distribute them considerately around the house, maybe under the sofa, or on the bed. How kind!
His Volunteer Puppy Trainer Vanita adores him. “He’s very friendly as well as funny,” she tells us. “He’s already started making his introductions with some of the other local dogs. He’s also forging a new friendship with our pet cat.”
And what else does he love, apart from gardens, laundry and cats? “A cuddle and a belly rub, of course!”
Bertie is so full of fun, and friendliness, with a bit of mischief thrown in. One day this cuddly helper really will help a deaf person to leave loneliness behind, while giving them hours of entertainment along the way. Until then, he’s going to give you and everyone at Hearing Dogs hours of entertainment along the way!
It’s very early days for little Bertie but he’s already showing a lot of promise. “He’s very clever,” Vanita says. “I can tell already that his intelligence and eagerness to please are going to stand him in very good stead for his training. All he needs to do right now is stay calm around food!”
Bertie is a sponsor pup. This means that very kind people are paying for this lucky puppy’s training, but unfortunately Bertie is no longer available to sponsor. However, the good news is that there are more fresh, new puppies that you can sponsor instead! Take a look below and pick your puppy!
