From an Abandoned to a Famous Pup With a Loving Home

Unlike most of the puppies who are loved by the owners or sellers, Bertram was abandoned at only 5 months old because he was deemed too big to sell. He had a very bumpy journey in the beginning of his life, but life took a different course for him when he was spotted by the artist Kathy Grayson. When she saw the pictures online, she couldn’t resist, and took the pup in immediately. She adopted Bertie from a shelter in Oklahoma, and now they both live in New York City.

The adorable little dog, looks very much alike with a cub. He’s unique features have made him very famous, where he often gets recognized in the streets.

Grayson set up an Instagram account, where she documents Bertie’s everyday life. From taking naps and walks, to enjoying play dates and snacks, this adorable pup was able to gather an amount of 437.000 followers on social media.

Recalling which pics really boosted Bertie’s popularity, Kathy said the initial growth was probably caused by a few cute shots where he fell asleep in the supermarket and fetched a meatball, but it was when she dressed him up as Paddington Bear that the Pom caused an explosion of happiness on his account.

The Pom’s owner,  Grayson, usually takes the dog with her to work where a lot of people stop to take a picture with him.  “Working at the art gallery, he gets to stay with me all day, which is definitely what he prefers. His favorite place is the dog park so every afternoon, he pulls me over there, he can wrestle and hump with all his friends. Spending so much time with the pup, it has become evident for Kathy that his mission is to bring happiness and joy to as many people as possible, so she just tries to capture his talent for it and share it widely. “The internet is a dark place! I want to help provide an antidote to all the ugliness and simply put a smile on people’s faces with his little brown face,” says Grayson.
