About Ernesta

“HI! I’m Ernesta and there is nothing in this world that I want more than cuddles! I love meeting new people and I am so excited to meet you too! If you give me a belly rub, I will be the happiest girl ever.

I love going on walks and exploring the world around me. There are so many interesting things for me to smell! I am really good about going potty outside and have never had an accident in the house!

Because I love people so much, I want to protect them and when I see other dogs I try scaring them off with my powerful bark. I am really good at listening though and it helps if you reassure me there is nothing to worry about. I haven’t met any other dogs at home so I am not too sure if we could be friends or not, the same goes for other pets.

I am really happy to sleep in my crate through the night and sometimes during my naps during the day. If you are around and I am awake, I will miss being with you and whine until you let me out. I am still a puppy and my foster mom says I will need some more training before I can be quiet when I am left alone.

I am a very loyal pup and I would love to be your snuggle buddy!” – xo, Ernesta

Do I Need Special Care?

Yes, Behavioral Special Needs - Ernesta is an exuberant, young heeler puppy. She is currently working through reactivity on leash, likely stemming from frustration. She will need patient and committed adopters to help her make positive choices.
