Homeless Bernese need offers of permanent homes!

Once again I find Bernese Welfare UK has used up offers of permanent, new homes for rescued
Bernese faster than offers of more new homes are coming in.

The Bernese who come through Bernese Welfare UK are varied with different needs so we need
to maintain a register of enough potential new owners to meet the demand and enable us to bring
together the most compatible new owner for each Bernese we seek to rehome. 

If you know anyone who is actively looking to adopt a needy, displaced Bernese and has carefully
thought through the commitment and responsibility of adding a new, large dog to their family
(no knee-jerk reactions please) would you please be kind enough to tell them to contact me AS
SOON AS POSSIBLE (if they haven't already added their names to our adoption register within the
past year). I would very much like (and hope!) to hear from some of you!
