Barney was re-homed 5 years ago as an 18 month old, but was returned to us due to his strength when out walking. He has settled well into kennels and is loved by all the dog carers.

Barney is a very lovely boy. He enjoys cuddles and is very willing to please you. He would benefit from further training to get his recall in place.  He loves spending time off the lead, playing with his handlers and exploring new surroundings. 

Barney is very strong to walk at first but once he has explored his surroundings he walks along side you.  He is very treat and toy motivated, so you can use these to reinforce loose lead walking.

Barney enjoys playing with his ball and will bring it back to you for you to throw again.  This could also be used to help train a solid and reliable recall.  Barney enjoys interacting with you and is a very affectionate and friendly boy.

Further training will benefit him as this will provide added mental stimulation, he is a very intelligent boy and would enjoy learning new commands and tricks. 

He is currently being fed on a light food, as he is carrying an extra few KGs.  With a strict diet and an increase of exercise the weight should soon drop off.

Barney has tested well with other dogs and is friendly and playful towards them, so pending a successful dog mix, Barney could live with another dog.

Barney is a very loving boy once he knows and trusts you he will make a wonderful companion to a family with older children who have previous experience of dogs.

Can you offer this lovely boy a loving and permanent new home?
