ORGINAL POST: Barnaby is an elderly statesman who is a total snuggle bug and who has changed 180 degrees since he arrived on transport in mid March and was placed in a foster home. When he first arrived in his foster home he stayed to himself and cowered when his foster Mom came to pet him and love him. Now after a few weeks of love, ear scratches, and soft - kind words he is a totally different dog. He greets his foster Mom at the door when she returns home with tail wags, short barks of happiness and what we call "Happy Buns".
Barnaby is house trained (has not had one accident), is good around cats (they nap together on the couch) and has shown little to no interest in the neighborhood dogs while out on his twice daily walk. During his first few days in his foster home he was placed in the kennel when his foster Mom went to work and at night, that lasted less than a week though because he was 100% trust worthy outside of the kennel.
Barnaby is an older dog though and is showing some signs of hearing loss, arthritis (he takes a daily pill that has him feeling lots better!) and he spends the majority of his day napping. Barnaby currently lives with two foster adults and 3 cats. It is a quiet household and everyone gets along very well.
Barnaby's favorite activities include - snuggling on the couch while his foster mom reads, car rides, surveying the neighborhood from the front porch, naps, short strolls (strolls are at a slower pace than a walk), and Friday evening trips to Dairy Queen for an ice cream cone for his foster Mom and a pup cup of ice cream for him. If you have a quiet household, are looking for someone to lavish love upon and need someone to snuggle next you on the couch while watching TV or reading - Barnaby is the perfect dog for you.
