BARNABY is an approximately 5-1/2 year old, neutered, chocolate-colored miniature schnauzer / wire-haired terrier mix. He is a cute little button with a fiesty attitude!
BARNABY likes to collect toys, but will only play with them with you. Tug-o'-war is his favorite game. He prefers to sleep on a doggie bed and he does not like to be kenneled. He enjoys daily walks and is now used to a leash. He does enjoy running around the back yard, rolling in the warm grass and exploring every nook and cranny.
BARNABY likes to lay next to you or be picked up to cuddle; belly scratches are the best. He would be okay with a like-sized companion to play with, but introductions would be required. Large dogs tend to frighten him. He did meet 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 a home protector - he barks at anyone that comes to the door (for a little guy, he can be rather intimidating!).
BARNABY will need an owner with small dog experience and patience (he needs time to get used to his environment). He will do best in a home with no small children or large pets.
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.
If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com. If you are interested in adopting, 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.
