Hello, Bertie here..
I too am a rescue dog and i'm about 9 years old and a Patterdale Terrier and black in colour.
I was rescued in 2006 by my Mum.. i had been found wandering the streets and had been taken into the rescue centre to wait for my owners to come for me but they never arrived.
I remember a lady wandering in and smiling at me, i liked her as soon as i saw her. I went to live with my new Mum and love her to bits.
I looked after my Mum when she had cancer and i still follow her all over now, just incase she falls or needs me.
