Barney is 18 months old and a large size male crossbreed (around Labrador size) from Romania who enjoys learning new things especially when there is food involved! Barney is able to live with other dogs and dog savvy cats, and fine to be left alone for a few hours as he is housetrained. He is very loyal and affectionate, however he must go to an adult only home or with children over 12 – this is due to his size and he is still learning.
Barney can be reactive towards other dogs when out on walks, however his foster mum has been working very hard with this and it has almost stopped with her as he really sees her as pack leader – and thats where he gets his confidence from to stop his reactive behaviour. Barney needs a firm leader and patient home willing to give him the chance to bond with his family, ideally someone with big dog experience. He also needs plenty of exercise as he is prone to weight gain. Barney just needs a chance to show someone how well behaved and loyal he can be, after all he is young and a bit daft! He has also started being introduced to agility equipment and is proving himself to be a brave lad.
If you would like to meet Barney to offer him a home please call Dawn at Phoenix dog rescue
