Meet Barney JM

Barney,

Look at the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! Its Barney the Wonder Pup! Have you heard of me? I would encourage you to check out my road to recovery on my very own Facebook page: Barney the Wonder Pup.

My tale doesn't start as a happy one. I was found as a stray as little puppy, and was in very poor condition. I had demodex mange, eye infections, skin infections, parasites, kennel cough, rickets, extreme dehydration and was emaciated. I had truly given up on life, and couldn't think of one reason to live. (see my picture on this site :(
Then a nice lady came and got me from the shelter, and showed me that not all hoomans were bad. I was so weak I couldn't even lift my head, but I would show my appreciation with some quick tail wags.

The next nice woman that met me ended up being my foster mom. She took me home, and showed me that there was lots to live for, especially chicken! She slowly nursed me back to health, and helped me to understand that people are nice, and nothing to be scared off. I have blossomed into a loving, and joy filled pup. Sometimes, if people move to fast when trying to pet me, it does still give me a fright. I LOVE to be petted and scratched behind my ears. I will close my eyes, and sit there for as long as my hooman wants to pet me.

I am great with other dogs, and have a very gentle playing style. I would do best in a home with another well trained dog, as I take my leads on what is good and bad from the other foster dogs at my current house. A couple of the dogs here have a rough playing style, and I do not like that at all. My favorite friend is a 12lb dachshund puppy. We play, and play, and then snuggle together. Another game I love is to play tug with the other dogs here.

I am a nice mix of hound and black mouth curr. While I do come from hunting lines, I do not seem to have much prey drive. I would much rather sun my belly, or get scratches, than chase something fast. I enjoy my daily walks, but am also quite content on sleeping inside for hours. My foster mom likes to put me in her lap and snuggle me. At 6 months old I weigh 35lbs, my foster mom is worried she wont be able to lift me up much longer!

Foster mom says I have stolen a piece of her heart. This is false! I try really hard to be a good dog, and would never steal anything from foster mom! I might steal toys from the other dogs sometimes, but that's it, I swear!

It is true that my story started off as a sad one, but I am hoping that you can help me with my happily ever after tail wags.

GOD'S DOGS Rescue, in San Antonio TX, does not have a shelter - Our dogs are raised in foster homes in the San Antonio area. Each dog comes spayed or neutered, up-to-date with age appropriate vaccinations, microchipped, heartworm tested and are current with monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.

ALL OF THIS IS INCLUDED IN THE Local ADOPTION FEE OF $250.00 FOR PUPPIES and $200.00 for ADULTS. (Local is in the state of Texas). Medical records will come with each dog at the time of adoption.

IF THIS IS AN OUT OF STATE ADOPTION, TRANSPORT TO YOU is included in the adoption fee of $500.00 for PUPPIES and $400.00 for ADULTS. We transport all over the country!!
