Bernie, an eight-year-old Basset Hound/beagle mix, was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas due to the health of his owner. Now this gentle pet can be yours.

Bernie loves everyone he meets, young and old. He walks well on a leash, loves to give hugs and is just perfect for any family.

You can meet Bernie or any of the other dogs and cats available for adoption from the SPCA's Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center, 2400 Lone Star Drive in West Dallas, starting at noon Saturday.

Call 214-742-7722 for more details.
