Hiya! I'm Barney! Some of my canine friends and I traveled quite a long way to be here at the shelter and we're hoping it'll pay off and we can find our forever homes! I'm a Southern dog and was originally staying with another animal rescue in Louisiana. That shelter ran out of space and, thankfully, the nice people at HRA offered to let me and my buddies take up some kennels here while we wait for new families to come along! At 10 months, I'm still a puppy and have the energy to prove it. I can be calm at times, but love when I get to play with my people outside or go for long walks or runs. If you're looking for an active buddy, I may be a good match! Come to the shelter and get to know me a little better!
