Meet Barney

Let’s hear it for the boy- let’s give the boy a hand- that’s me- handsome Barney!! I’m super sweet and oh so handsome. Here’s the thing, given all that I’ve been through, it’s really pretty amazing…..You see, I was found in a dumpster. Yup- that’s right- a dumpster. Whether I crawled in there myself looking for food as I was fending for myself, or whether someone actually was so awful that they dumped me in there, I’ll never tell. In fact, I’d like to just forget about that awful chapter of my life! Right now I’m focusing on all these nice people, who regularly talk to me and pet me and show me love…and they give me delicious food every day!! I am very social, I walk right up to the volunteers, looking for love and patting- as you can see!! Even with all I’ve been through I’m very trusting!! They estimate that I’m about a year old, but I’ll be going to the veterinarian on Monday, July 8 to get up-to-date on everything, and they'll have a better idea of my age then! I’ll be ready for a forever home right after that, and I’m sure hoping someone sees me and falls in love with me and wants to adopt me!!! I’d really love a safe and secure and loving home to call my own. I just got here the end of June, I’m so social and flirty!! I think I will do just fine with friendly kids and pets, I would just want a slow supervised introduction. I’m very gentle, yet I am young enough that I still love to play also, but I am not really doing much of that yet here at the shelter. It’s all new to me-So just give me some time and then my full personality will come out. I’m going to make the most amazing Pet and companion., wait and see and give me a chance!! I have the most handsome coat, I’m dreaming of a loving, wonderful home, please come meet me and take me home!!

OK Barney. our turn! He did sadly get found in a dumpster, poor sweet boy. He’s so handsome and so sweet- he deserves a loving home of his own! Won’t you be his hero and come meet this cutie!
