Barley is inept with dogs and is learning to trust. He needs a family who knows how to support a terrier, manage him with loving care, and promote his sense of self worth. Terrierrescue promotes a non-confrontational approach that includes loving kindness and lots of forgiveness. We believe in a respectful approach: our terriers are their own people. Barley needs to learn to be at the heart of a family and to be involved in activities relating to his needs and fulfilment. Barley has enjoyed nearly a year in foster with a 2 adults who have learn to work in with him and read him. A secure garden and exit management are required as with any terrier. Barley needs to be an only pet and is not for children, quiet home ref visitors.
Barley was taken in by a son who then left home; Barley ended staying with the son’s self-confessed “non doggie” mother. He was kept in the kitchen, conservatory, and garden. TerrierRescue was approached to help find a terrier family to provide for his needs. Our vet has operated on Barley to correct a problem ‘down below’ to alleviate repeated infections; Barley needs to be kept
hydrated. Barley is neutered, chipped and vax’d and is now in kennels in Godstone, Surrey.
Barley is a lovely terrier. He enjoys his walks and is learning to walked with other dogs whilst at the kennels. Barley travels well crated in the car; he is housetrained and affectionate. Barley is joyful in encounter but needs respect around his space and is nervous of sudden movements. It may be best for him not to be allowed on the sofa as he has bitten out of nerves when disturbed suddenly. Barley does settle when left and is happy in his own company.
Barley is a beautiful Parson’s Jack Russell who is 7 years old. He is ready to come into a confident, experienced family who make allowances for his nerves and slowly slowly broaden his horizons. Barley will need his space respected until he learns to share. Barley needs a special family to very gradually build trust. Not for picking up and intrusive moves. He is absolutely adorable.
