Barney (aka Bernie) is a sweet and loving dog. Once he trusts you, he'll stay by your side constantly and love you more every day. When you're petting him, he'll give a big show, rolling on his back with a great big smile and wiggling around to let you know just how much he's enjoying it. He is pretty high-energy, but is starting heart worm treatment soon, so he must get used to more rest. Most times he is content to curl up and go to sleep, but sometimes he gets puppy-like bursts of energy and goes running through the house!
Bernie is a young dog and needs a owner who is willing to help him learn, because he is not totally house-trained and doesn't know commands beyond 'sit.' He also will chew anything he can get his paws on! He's a little mouthy, especially when he gets excited, but will back off when you tell him "no." With some consistent and treat-based training, Barney will reward your patience tenfold. Contact me today to learn more about sweet Barney!
All Brother Wolf animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations before adoption (if species appropriate).
Application and counseling is required prior to all adoptions.
Individuals interested in adopting a puppy are STRONGLY encouraged to download and read this FREE ebook. Even if you've raised puppies in the past, this is an invaluable resource to help make your new addition successful!
Please note that visual breed identification of companion animals has been proven to be unreliable, so for most of our animals we provide a best guess at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each of our animals as an individual and do our best to describe and place pets based on personality not breed label.
