Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:

Berni is a little intimidating at first, with his large size and deep voice, but he is a gentle giant! He has gorgeous amber eyes and a unique coloration- 2-tone brown. He may have some hound in his lineage, judging by his head shape, baying voice, and lankiness. This handsome guy is an easy walker and takes treats very gently from your hand. He is quite playful in the playpen! He seems to be very interested in other dogs.
