Barrett's time was up. How could a dog of Barrett's quality, appearance, demeanor, etc., etc., not get adopted right away while in a shelter? One reason! He shared a small kennel with another dog who was far more assertive and would literally take over when people would stop. And Barrett let him. Barrett would retreat to the back of the dark kennel where no would could see him. Because of his propensity to withdraw, it almost cost him his life.
Barrett is STUNNING. He walks respectfully on a leash. He initially refused to enter his crate, (it obviously was symbolic of negative), but within one day Barrett would enter his crate upon command with no hesitation. Show a dog trust and love and magic occurs. And this is a dog who's easy to love. Barrett requires regular exercise, but is not bounce off the wall hyper. He would flourish in a home with a fence yard. Barrett's potential has yet to be reached due to his intelligence and his desire to please. When Barrett met two cats he looked and then looked away. There is not enough one can say about this fine dog.
