Meet Bernie!!
He is a handsome three year old mini Aussie. He has extensive obedience and agility training! Additionally Bernie will come to you with a lifetime training opportunity through Woof Beach!
Unfortunately, his owner’s illness has forced her to give up her beloved dog.
Bernie will need a patient understanding owner to help him through this transition.
An Aussie knowledgeable home without young children is preferred.
Bernie’s other interests are fetching balls, long walks, playing with his doggie friends or just being by your side!
Don’t hesitate, Bernie’s waiting for you!!

Adoption Policy:

  • Complete an adoption application and submit it. You will receive an onscreen confirmation we received it.
  • Once your application is initially reviewed, we then contact your veterinarian and references. After that, a H.E.L.P. volunteer will contact you. Please be patient, this does take some time especially over a weekend. Please allow 24-72 hours for us to make contact with you.
  • All members of the family must be present in order to adopt. We want to make sure it's a good fit for everyone!
  • Because this is a life time commitment, once you meet the foster dog, there is a 24 hour waiting period for you to make sure that the fit is right for everyone. So many people see a cute face and want to take them home right away without really thinking about it. The waiting period also allows you to get supplies ready for your new one.
  • We do not ship dogs within or out of the state.


  • Puppies 12 months and younger are $300.
  • Adult Dogs over 12 months and younger than 7 years old are $250.
  • Senior Dogs over 7 years are $200.
