Barney is a sweet, energetic dog who is waiting for his forever home! He is high energy and would be great for a person who loves an active lifestyle like his. He loves long walks in any weather (he even loves to ice skate) and is also a great running buddy. He is food motivated and knows the commands: sit, heel, off, and give paw. He is very playful, loves toys and is a great fetch partner. He brings the ball back every time. Barney needs to be the only pet in the home and needs an experienced dog owner due to his energy level. Barney is such a friendly guy. When he realized that it was his turn to come outside, you could just see him thinking, “Oh boy!” His tail was wagging, but he still stayed pretty calm while he got the leash put on. Barney is a big boy, so he’s pretty strong and doesn’t mind leading the way on walks. When we got to the off-leash run, Diamond was already occupying the second one, and she and Barney sniffed each other politely through the fence. Barney is a very attentive boy. He was always looking through the fence to see what was happening. When it was time to get his official portrait for the Orphans of the Storm website, it was a little challenging to get him to focus on the camera because he was too busy paying attention to everything else going on! Barney is an affectionate boy, too. He joined us on the bench for a while and enjoyed getting a good scratch on his hips and back. Come in soon to see if Barney is the companion for you! Get acquainted with this dog off leash in one of our family run areas. Most dogs will need to run off some energy before they settle down and get acquainted with you. Thanks!
