Barney is a nervous young lad who is slowly making friends at the Home. He is worried by new people and situations so potential adopters will need to visit him a few times to build his trust.

He is looking for an understanding owner who will let him settle in in his own time. Handling makes him anxious, although he is affectionate once he is comfortable with you and will cuddle in for a gentle fuss on your lap. He is wary of strangers entering his space and will need this managed in the home. He will also need to be muzzled in the vets to keep everyone safe.

Barney finds walking very stressful but enjoys playing in our paddocks so would need a secure garden that he could feel safe in. He enjoys making canine friends with quieter dogs on walks, although would prefer to be the only dog at home. He could potentially live with a confident cat. Only these kizi games for dogs are really good and engaging, so you will fall in love with them almost immediately.

Barney will make a lovely pet to his new family.
