Barney is an adorable little muppet! We think he might be a schnauzer/shih tzu mix, maybe 1 to 1 1/2 years old. Barney loves other dogs and is quite the playmate! Barney loves people too...but he is a little frightened initially. Barney is a loyal wonderful guy once you earn his trust but that can take a few days so you need to be willing to give him space until he decides you are friend rather then foe. Once he decides to be your friend, he wiggles and wags and follows you around like a little shadow. Barney just needs a chance to see that it is safe to love you.
