Barney [ADOPTED SEPTEMBER 1] is a 1-2 year old buff male with sable markings who came to us from a shelter in Wisconsin after he was found as a stray. When the 7 day hold was up and no owners came forward the shelter contacted us. We are not sure why someone would not be looking for this wonderful boy. Barney was very good for what was undoubtedly his very first hair cut, however he was matted to the skin so we had to shave his hair off. When Barney˘s hair grows it will be very thick so he will need an owner who can commit to professional grooming every 6-8 weeks

Barney is a very, very sweet male who became such a happy boy as we cut hair off and he could move freely! He likes to play with his family and run in the yard. Barney would do best in a home with a fenced in yard and would benefit from some formal obedience training although he is already a very good boy. Barney takes a few minutes to adjust to new situations and new people, therefore we ask that his forever family be patient with him. You will not regret welcoming this wonderful boy into your home.

Barney is crate and housetrained. Our vet felt that Barney could easily stand to lose about 2-3 pounds.
