Ernie had been pulled by APA from a high-kill shelter with his mom and siblings. His dad had been at the shelter, too, but sadly he had already been euthanized when the rescue found the family. Ernie was so happy and full of life, and he quickly became a foster fail. His new family loved him immediately - except for his new brother Jasper, who needed a little more time.
"Jasper wasn't a fan of Ernie at first, but Tom was smitten and felt that having another dog around would help Jasper come out of his shell a little bit more, so Ernie became a permanent member of the family," Billings said. "Ernie is Jasper's polar opposite - he is fearless, loves meeting new people and going new places, and LOVES attention."
