Meet Ernest

Everyone I’d like you to meet Ernest (formerly Farley), the gentle-giant bulldog mix. We pulled him from Pound Buddies and he’s quickly made himself at home with us. He is available for adoption through Hearts of Hope!

Ernie's Story:

All we really know about Ernie’s past is that he was found as a stray in Muskegon. He spent about a month and a half at the shelter until we pulled him to foster.

Meet Ernest, the 90% head and neck superstar! This dashing bulldog mix is ready to bring some serious charm into your life. Ernest may tip the scales at a hefty 82 pounds, but don’t let that fool you—he’s just a big softie at heart! This cool dude is all about the chill vibes; you’ll often find him lounging on the couch, dreaming of belly rubs and tasty snacks. Ernest is a certified couch potato who enjoys slow meandering walks and short bursts of playtime. He’s a pro at commands like sit, touch, leave it, and come, especially if there’s a treat involved! His tail is in a perpetual state of wagging, and he’ll stick to your side like glue if there’s a snack on offer. With Ernest by your side, every day is an adventure filled with laughter and love. Don’t miss out on the chance to welcome this laid-back legend into your home—Ernest is ready to be your loyal companion through thick and thin! Ernest is neutered and up to date on shots. Get ready to experience life through the eyes of a dog who knows how to take it easy.
