Barney is still looking for his forever family. This amazing dog will fit in ANY family situation. He loves kids, loves all other animals, walks PERFECT on a leash, NEVER barks or makes a fuss unless he has to go potty or wants to eat. He lifts his paw and taps his dish when he is hungry. Barney would make a great couch potato, low maintenance dog. All he wants out of life is a soft bed, food and someone to pay him a little attention. He doesnt even want much attention, just once in awhile. He is funny and so expressive. He will tilt his head back and forth when he knkws its time for a treat. Although we dont know about his past, as he just showed up here, emaciated and appeared to have been mistreated, we are hoping to find him a bright future with a family he can call his own. If you are interested in Barney, please message me. He is FULLY vetted, neutered and Micro chipped, Heartworm negative, and on flea, tick and heartworm prevention.

About Ring Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Ring Dog Rescue is a 501c3 pit bull rescue organization based out of Richmond, Virginia. Our focus is on the rescue, rehabilitation and long term placement of pit bull-type dogs in our region, as well as on the continued and ongoing education of the general public on the true character of these dogs and their role in altering the current societal perception. In 2009, Ring Dog Rescue placed 87 dogs in loving, permanent homes across Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, Washington D.C., New Jersey, Pennsylvania and South Carolina, representing a 26% increase in dogs adopted from 2008. Our dogs come from various sources, including local kill-shelters, as strays or even as removals from neglectful situations. Our dogs are provided full and complete medical care, including spay and neuter, vaccines, microchips and remediation of any ailments the dog may suffer, placed in foster homes, taught to be a family dog and then placed in an adoptive home, after a thorough screening process.
