Meet Barnabas! This handsome guy came to us as an emaciated stray from the Mahoning County Dog Pound. Barnabas is a 6-month-old Rottweiler/Sharpei mix pup. Despite his tough beginning, Barnabas is the sweetest boy! We do believe he was abused, and he is initially timid (especially around men) as a result. If you greet him calmly and have some patience he'll be in your lap in no time! Barnabas loves his foster family and greets them with kisses every evening after work. He loves having a comfy bed and chew toys. He enjoys walks in the woods and likes to wade in the water. Barnabas does well with small dogs and female dogs after a proper introduction. He is selective about large dogs and male dogs. Barnabas is best friends with his beagle foster brother! A meet and greet is required between Barnabas and potential adopters' pets. Barnabas has not yet been tested with cats. We believe he would do best with no small children. He would be fine with older, considerate kids and teenagers.
Barnabas does well in the crate and does not potty in it. He knows "sit" and is working on leash manners. Barnabas is doing very well with housetraining. His foster mom is training him to ring a bell at the door when he needs to go outside.
Barnabas' adoption fee of $250 will cover his cherry eye surgery, neuter, heartworm test, fecal test, microchip, Rabies vaccination, Bordatella vaccination, DHPP vaccination, flea medication, dewormer, Revolution for flea, tick, and heartworm prevention, and a nail trim.
To adopt, we require that you are at least 21-years-old and own your home. Any current pets must be spayed/neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations and heartworm prevention. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application if you are the loving family Barnabas has been waiting for!
