Dogs may be man’s best friend but this doesn’t mean that man is always friendly towards dogs. Whether it’s dog fighting, abuse or neglect there are some people out there who are pretty cruel to these animals. Bertram the Pomeranian learned this horrible lesson when he was left behind by his breeders because he was ‘too big to sell.’ Luckily for Bert, New York artist Kathy Grayson found him on petfinder and immediately decided to adopt the pup.
When Bertram The Pomeranian was only 5 months old, a dog breeder abandoned him
The reason being that the puppy was ‘too big to sell’
His owner Kathy Grayson found him on a pet adoption site and brought him to NY where she owns an art gallery
“Bert is very calm and chill, inquisitive and silly”, Kathy says
Now, Bert helps Kathy in her art gallery as an art connoisseur
“I gave him his own Instagram as he was taking over my art gallery page! I need to post paintings and people just wanted to see Bert”
“I love when people come to the art gallery to see Bertie or when they bring their dogs to meet Bertie!
And even though his life started off a bit rough, he now enjoys living in NY
Bert’s now a social media star, with over 95k followers on Instagram, and Kathy says she’s not surprised
“Bert is a wonderful guy and makes people happy, the Internet and social media are built for cute animals, people need an antidote to all the nastiness”
He recently turned 5 years old and celebrated his birthday in style
And surely has many more happy years to come
