Bert the Pomeranian doggie, who looks like a little bear, had a rough start in life, but today he is one of the fancy art connoisseurs living his dream in New York City. When he was 5 months old, Bert’s breeder abandoned him at a shelter as he thought he was too big to sell. That’s when Kathy Grayson, who owns an art gallery in NYC called The Hole, saw him on the Internet and immediately knew she had to adopt him.
“There was just something about the look in his eyes,” Grayson told The Dodo. “I think that next day in NYC we had an opening at my art gallery with hundreds of people and a dinner and after-party. From day one, Bert was ready to join the art world!”
The doggie’s sophisticated demanor made him a sweetheart of the art world. “He is so calm and like… introspective,” Grayson said. “He’s been to dozens of openings, scores of art fairs in NYC, Miami, L.A…. His motto is ‘Happy to be included!'”
Bert even likes to perform some art himself. “He will sit up like a person and dance for treats,” Grayson said. “I also trained him to kiss on command… It’s adorable but now there are no free kisses; he wants a treat for them!” Bert, sounds like you did good for yourself!
