Barney's Story...
Name: Barney
Color: Black and Tan
Breed: Rottweiler Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 1 year 6 months
Barney is a very happy boy who loves everyone. He is available for adoption at Whatcom Humane Society.
Special features: Barney had a very rough start in life. He had an injury that wasn't treated properly at the time, so he still has a bit of a limp. He will most likely have some arthritis due to this injury, and should be on a high quality diet with glucosamine in it. We want to make sure that he starts off on the right paw in his new home so he will need to be signed up for positive based obedience classes before his adoption can be finalized. Barney will make a great walking companion and needs to stay at this weight as it is better for his joints. Swimming would be the best for him and he would love to go to the therapy pool in Lynden!
Dream Home: Barney could live anther dog and even a confident cat. He would love to live with older more respectful kids who are ok with big jumpy dogs.
If you’re interested: Please call our Adoptions department at (360) 733-2080 or visit us at 2172 Division St, Bellingham, WA 98226 to fill out an application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barney, a Bellingham Rottweiler dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rottweiler for sale in Bellingham, or seeking a Rottweiler dog from a breeder in Bellingham.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bellingham already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bellingham breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Rottweiler breeders who help with Rottweiler rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bellingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
