BARNABUS(BARNEY)'s Story...
BARNABUS(BARNEY)--"PLAYFUL--LOVING-- SMART--GORGEOUS" BARNEY IS A 3-4 YEAR OLD, 65 POUND, BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL, PUREBRED ENGLISH POINTER. WE RECEIVED AN URGANT PLEA ASKING FOR OUR HELP WHEN DUE TO THE SUDDEN DEATH OF BARNEY'S OWNER THIS GRAND PUP NEEDED OUR HELP. WE COULDN'T GET TO THIS EXCEPTIONAL PUP FAST ENOUGH. THE ENGLISH POINTER IS NOTED AS ONE OF THE MOST PICTURESQUE OF ANIMALS. A DOG OF GREAT MAJESTY, KEEN INTELLIGENCE AND KINDLY EXPRESSION. A BREED KNOWN FOR UNLIMITED STAMINIA AND STRENGTH. ONCE YOU SEE BARNEY HE WILL STOP YOU IN YOUR TRACKS HE IS SO GORGEOUS. YOU CAN TELL THAT BARNEY WAS EXTREMELY WELL TAKEN CARE OF, HAD THE BEST OF EVERYTHING AND HIS OWNER'S CHERISHED COMPANION. THE FIRST THING YOU WILL NOTICE IS WHAT A BEAUTIFULLY BUILT GUY HE IS. HE HAS PERFECT BODY CONFIRMATION, WELL BALANCED WITH GREAT SYMMETRY. HIS CARRIAGE IS REGAL, PROUD, BODY FIRMLY KNIT WITH STRONG BONE, TOUGH SINEU, WITH CLEAN LINES. HE IS LITHE AND MUSCULAR WITHOUT BEING COURSE. HIS MUZZLE IS LONG, SQUARE, PERFECTLY CHISELED. HIS CHEST IS DEEP AND STRONG. HIS COAT IS FLAWLESS, GLACIER WHITE WITH THE ENGLISH POINTER ORANGE MELTON MARKINGS. THE MARKINGS ON HIS FACE, ARE SO PERFECT IN FACT IT LOOKS LIKE BARNEY WAS HAND PAINTED. HE IS STRIKING TO LOOK AT, DECIDEDLY SHOWY. HIS EYES WILL TRULY MAKE YOU MELT. THEY ARE A WARM, GOLDEN COGNAC COLOR WITH A PROUD, FEARLESS BUT ALSO GENTLE " HAPPY-PLAYFUL-LOVE ME" EXPRESSION. A TRULY BEAUTIFUL GUY BUT JUST WAIT TIL YOU SEE BARNEY MOVE, THE ENGLISH POINTER IN MOTION IS TRULY BEAUTIFUL TO WATCH. HE DOESN'T JUST WALK BARNEY STRUTS, GAIT SMOOTH, WITH FRACTIONLESS MOVEMENT, HE APPEARS TO BE FLOATING THROUGH AIR. KNOWN FOR SPEED AND ENDURANCE, A COURAGEOUS, HIGHLY INTELLIGENT DOG, A BREED WITH THE ABILITY TO CONCENTRATE ON THEIR JOB. THE ENGLISH POINTER ARE HIGHLY VERSITILE DOGS, EAGER TO LEARN, EASY TO TRAIN, A BREED WHO CONSIDERS ANYTHING NEW THEY ARE INTRODUCED TO A CHALLENGE. A BREED WHO DELIGHTS IN PLEASING THEIR OWNER. THEY THRIVE ON CONSISTANT TRAINING FROM A FIRM AND CONFIDENT OWNER. THE ENGLISH POINTER BREED IS NOT A COUCH POTATO, LAID BACK, SLEEP ALL DAY KIND OF DOG THEY ARE ACTIVE, ENERGETIC AND ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT LIFE AND THIS IS BARNEY. THE ENGLISH POINTER NEEDS STIMULATION AND EXERISE DURING THE DAY. IF YOU WANTED A GREAT WALKING OR JOGGING BUDDY BARNEY IS UP TO THE TASK. HE IS IN GREAT SHAPE WILL MATCH YOU STEP FOR STEP AND A THREE MILE WALK OR JOG WOULD BE AS THEY SAY A WALK IN THE PARK FOR OUR STAR ATHLETE. BARNEY IS AN EXCEPTIONAL PUP FOR AN ACTIVE "LET'S GO" FAMILY, A SINGLE GUY OR GIRL WHO'S LIFE STYLE MATCHES BARNEY'S. NO MORE PERFECT DOG COULD HAVE BEEN CHOSEN TO ASSUME THE ROLE OF PROTECTOR AND BEST FRIEND. BARNEY IS AN EXTREMELY SOCIAL GUY AND NEVER MEETS A STRANGER. JUST CALL HIS NAME AND THOSE GORGEOUS EYES WILL LIGHT UP AND HE'S OFF HEADING YOUR WAY AS FAST AS THOSE LONG FLOWING GRACEFUL LEGS WILL TAKE HIM, WHICH BELIEVE US IS FAST. HE IS A "LEANER" AND WILL COME AND SNUGGLE UP AS CLOSE TO YOU AS HE CAN GET ASKING FOR A PAT OR A RUB WHICH HE ADORES AS LONG AS YOU WILL PAT THIS "LOVE ME" GUY WILL STAY. THE ENGLISH POINTER BREED ARE EXTREMELY DEVOTED TO THOSE THEY LOVE. BARNEY IS PATIENT, FRIENDLY, ONE OF THE HAPPIEST PUPS WE HAVE SEEN, AND A TRUE FAMILY FRIEND. HE ADORES ALL DOGS HE MEETS BUT BARNEY'S BEST BUDDY WOULD BE A DOG THAT IS CLOSER TO HIS SIZE AND ONE THAT LIKES TO GO AND HAVE A GOOD TIME AS MUCH AS BARNEY DOES. SLOW MOVING, LAID BACK DOGS JUST NOT BARNEY'S CUP OF TEA. GIVE HIM A BUDDY WHO WILL MATCH HIM TAKING T IN THE EXCITEMENT OF THE DAY. A FRIEND WHO WILL RUN, ROMP AND ENJOY LIFE AS MUCH AS THIS GORGEOUS GUY DOES. (CATS HOWEVER ARE ANOTHER MATTER AND WE HAVEN'T CONVINCED BARNEY THAT CATS DON'T WANT TO ROMP AND PLAY WITH HIM SO A HOME WITHOUT CATS IS PROBABLY BEST). WE FEEL THAT AFTER SPENDING TIME WITH BARNEY THAT THE PERFECT LIFE FOR HIM WOULD BE WITH AN OWNER WHO HAS LAND IN A COUNTRY SETTING WITH A HUGE FENCED YARD WHERE BARNEY COULD SPEND HIS DAYS FLYING THROUGH THE AIR, STRETCHING THOSE LONG LEGS, PLAYING FETCH(HIS FAVORITE GAME), ENJOYING THE DAY JUST ENJOYING LIFE. THE POTENTIAL FOR A PUP AS SMART AS BARNEY IS HUGE. HE IS A TRUE "OPEN BOOK" AND NEEDS AN OWNER THAT IS WILLING TO TEACH, TRAIN AND WATCH THIS OUTSTANDING PUP SHINE. IF THE COMPANION YOU ARE HOPING TO ADD TO YOUR LIFE IS ONE THAT IS EXTREMELY INTELLIGENT, ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT EVERYDAY, A DOG WHO LIVES TO DEVOTE HIS LIFE TO THOSE HE LOVES, A PUP THAT IS LOVING, LOYAL, HAPPY AND ONE WHO LOOKS LIKE A PAINTING THEN LOOK NO FURTHER BARNEY IS YOUR PUP. ONCE THIS OUTSTANDING GUY GIVES HIS FRIENDSHIP AND LOYALTY TO HIS NEW OWNER IT IS GIVEN FOR LIFE!!!! THIS IS ONE OUTSTANDING GUY!!!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BARNABUS(BARNEY), a Pawling Pointer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pointer for sale in Pawling, or seeking a Pointer dog from a breeder in Pawling.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pawling already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Pawling breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pointer breeders who help with Pointer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Pawling paves the way for another one to be saved.
