Throwback Thursday – Bertie

Meet Bertie, the star of this week’s throwback Thursday.

Bertie will be joining the Buddies office dog team for the next few months with his mum, Sadie. We caught up with Sadie to find out more about this handsome hound.

Name – Bertie

Age – 4 and a half years old.

Why this name?

‘We thought he looked just like a teddy bear, so Bertie bear stuck.’

Breed – Cockapoo

Why did you choose this breed?

‘We chose this breed as they do not shed fur. They also have a reputation for being a very chilled out breed.’

How old was Bertie when he joined your family?

‘I think he was around 6 to 8 weeks old. He was tiny.’

Where did you get your pet from?

‘Bertie was from a reputable breeder local to us in Market Harborough, Leicestershire.

What food does Bertie love?

‘Salami! It’s his absolute favourite.’

What food does Bertie hate?

‘He hates peas. We have no idea why as most dogs love them.’

Who is Bertie’s favourite human?

‘Any human he meets. He’s not fussy, he just loves people. He’s always there to greet you when you get home with slippers or anything that he can fit in his mouth.’

What is Bertie’s favourite toy?

‘He loves his little toy rabbit called ‘Minty’.’

What does Bertie dislike?

‘Bertie hates it when he doesn’t get enough attention. He is the neediest dog in the world and loves a cuddle. Every night he will tap you until you stroke him.

If you could have any other breed what would it be?

‘I would love to have a German Shepard.’

We are always on the hunt for handsome hounds and pretty pups to feature in our throwback Thursday blogs. If you would like to get involved, email us at Hello@Buddies.co.uk
