Barney was found as a stray and ended up in a shelter. He was also confirmed to have heart worms. He was very thin, anemic and had pressure sores on his body. Barney is about 2 years old and is currently going through heart worm treatment. He had his first treatment and will still need to have two more treatments and than will be neutered about a month or so after his treatments are done.
Barney is good with other dogs, kids and has learned to be okay with cats. Its taken some time, but he is realizing they are not for playing with. We will update more information on Barney as he gets closer to being adopted.
