Barney's story is a sad one. His owner had to be hospitalized and is more then likely not able to return. He and 8 other dogs, 3 horses, a mule and 15 cats were left without anyone to look after them properly. The property is located near Lancaster. A friend of the owner has been coming up once a week to take care of the house and the animals and hired a neighbor to come once a day to feed and water them. The rest of the time they are alone in their kennels, house and corrals. Paw Parent and another rescue were contacted and asked for help. Paw Parent was able to take in one dog with horrible fly bitten ears and two others were taken by another rescue. There are now still 6 dogs at this property patiently waiting to find a home or a rescue to take them in, one of them is Barney. I go up once a week to clean the kennels and let the dogs out of their runs for some exercise.
Barney and his sister Lilly have lots of energy and love to run and explore. It is too funny to watch how those two sausages run around criss cross with huge grins on their faces. He loves to be petted and cannot wait to be adopted and be able to live in a house with a loving new parent
He must be around 2-5 years old maybe and weighs approximately 30 pounds. He is neutered but needs to be updated on his shots. It would be great if he could find a home with his sister Lilly.
Please call 661-724-0642 if you are interested in meeting her. He would love to make a house with cozy dog bed his home.
