BARNABY is an approximately 5 year old chocolate-colored miniature schnauzer / wire-haired terrier mix. He is a cute little button with a big attitude! He likes to lay next to you or be picked up to cuddle; belly scratches are the best. He also feels the need to "protect" his home - - he barks at anyone that comes to the door (for a little guy, he can be rather intimidating!).
BARNABY likes to collect toys, but will only play with them with you. He does not like to be crated, but prefers a doggie bed, or your lap, to nap on. He enjoys daily walks and is now used to a leash. He does like to run around the back yard, rolling in the warm grass and exploring every nook and cranny.
BARNABY seems to want a like-sized companion, but careful introductions to other pets would be required. He shares the yard with another foster dog, RUFFLES, a cocker spaniel, but they don't play together. He has been introduced to bigger dogs, but they seem to frighten him. He also met a neighborhood cat. He ran up to the cat barking, but as soon as the cat hissed and bowed up, Barnaby hid behind his foster mom!
BARNABY is up-to-date on his vaccines and de-wormed. His heartworm test in June 2016 indicated that he is very, very low HW+ (as in barely registered), so he is due to be retested in December 2016. He is currently on a standard heartworm preventive once per month. He will need to remain on heartworm preventive for the rest of his life.
BARNABY was found on a main street in a suburb to the north west of Houston. He was dodging traffic and chased into a neighborhood for his own safety. With a lot of time and patience, he was finally leashed and taken to a foster home.
BARNABY will need an owner with small dog experience. He will do best in a home with no small children or large pets.
If you are interested in adoption, please complete an adoption application at www.HHFRescue.org. Thank you for considering a rescued dog!
The adoption fee includes vaccinations, bordetella, deworming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is an additional $10.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip. If adopting a puppy, the rabies and spay/neuter will be done at the same time by our vet once they are 4 months old and billed to us. It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
