Bergie or Bergalicious is the nickname that his foster mama calls him. The vet estimates Berg's birthday to be in September 2011. He is a couch potato and loves putting his big heavy head on your lap or back or neck, whatever he feels more convenient. He is crate trained; you just have to tap the crate and say "go" or "vamos" and he does it. He understands both Spanish and English. He used to attend Wagville every day (doggie daycare) and did well there! He gets along with big dogs (doesn't really play with them but strolls with the pack) and gets along with little dogs; the foster has two Yorkies and they are his best friends. He loves to play tug of war with other dogs. He prefers women over men. He is not a barker; he only barks a couple of times to notify you if there is someone coming near the home. His foster recently taught him how to fetch the ball but he hasn't grasped the concept that he has to give the ball back...
Berg is the ultimate cuddler, snores loudly, and drools occasionally. His favorite toy is his Kong. He is curious about cats (ears on attention) but doesn't go up to them or try to hurt them. He loves vegetables and veggie chips (kale, sweet potato).
He loves belly rubs. He is very in tune with his person's emotions; when his foster comes home from a long day of work or a bad day he knows when she is sad and rests his head on her lap. As most pitties, he thinks he is a small lap dog and tries to fit his hippo self onto your lap. He loves sleeping in bed right next to you. He knows the commands "sit," "stay," and "roll over." He also is a fan of the car! Berg can be nervous at first when you meet him but as soon as he trusts you he warms right up. If you're looking for a super (and we mean SUPER) mellow couch potato of a dog, Berg is your guy.
