Barney is a 2 year old lab mix. He loves to go for long walks with our volunteers! Barney has been having a good summer going to the Santa Maria Concerts in the Park with volunteers. He likes to meet new people and seems to enjoy the kids at the events as well. He is a very gentle dog and lets people give him hugs! He does well with the others dogs at the park too. We do believe he gets along better with female dogs than male. Barney would like a home with a family that will include him in daily activities, walks, jogging, etc. ID#359057
