Barney is an outgoing and friendly dog. He enjoys getting attention and is very playful but can also be a laid back cuddle bug. He is fostered in a home with a 5 year old child who has grown up around dogs and is very savvy with rambunctious guys like Barney. They get along great and have had no problems as long as proper boundaries and supervision are in place. While Barney can be energetic he is also level enough to calm down and enjoy a day lazing around the house. He is more of a medium to high energy dog verses a constantly on the go high energy dog.
Barney does great with other dogs and being smaller than all his foster siblings can cause quite the riot running circles around them. Barney is a generally friendly and social guy. He did test cat friendly initially however he is not fostered with a cat and we would be happy to have him tested again before placing him in a home with cats.
Barney is a true gem of a dog who despite not having much guidance has turned out amazingly well. Barney is going to need a home willing to dedicate time to training and providing energy outlets. His open, eager, and willing personality would make him a great candidate for agility or other dog sports.
