BARNEY (READY FOR HOMING)
11 Months Old
Boisterous Barney is a happy, friendly boy who loves human company. He will be a year old in August. Barney has already had three homes, so his next home really must be forever. Barney is a very trainable, intelligent boy with lots of energy. He will need a very active home with a competent, breed & rescue dog experienced owner who can deal with his strength and power, and give him the training that he needs. Barney spent some time in a foster home and although he had no commands at all to begin with he very quickly learned the command Sit. Barney's previous owners found it difficult to cope with his bounciness as he can jump up with some force when he runs towards you so we are recommending an adult only home for him, however we may consider a home for him with sensible, older children. Barney will need work on all aspects of his training with a regular training programme and mental stimulation exercises. He is very responsive to toys and treats. Training classes would be great for him, with some obedience work eventually to help focus his mind. Barney would be best as the only dog in the home, however he got on well with the two female dogs in his foster home so we may consider a home for him with an older, placid female that he can learn from. Barney definitely can't be rehomed with cats as he chases them quite ferociously.
Young Barney has so much potential in the right hands. Please get in touch if you can give him the chance he needs to be a really super dog.
