Barney has been with us for a few weeks now. He was surrendered to us by his
pet owner of 3 years in very poor condition (note he was obtained originally
from another adoption service who declined to take him back). Barney's ideal
pet weight is between 33-34kg, but when he came to us he weighed 27kg, with
every rib, hip bone & vertebra protruding. He was famished & would grab food
from your hand. His coat was in poor condition, he had chronic infections
and had little energy.

Fast forward a few weeks & Barney is a different boy - he is happy &
enthusiastic - unfortunately his crazy tail wagging has led to a bout of
"happy tail" which is currently being treated. He has put on 4kg so far, but
still has more to gain. While his coat has improved tremendously, it is
still a work in progress. His infections have cleared up and he has gained
muscle tone & stamina.

Barney is used to being primarily an indoor dog. He loves human company &
gets on well with larger dogs (he is currently in foster care with an older
female Labrador). He would love a family with kids 10 years plus. Barney
already has Greenhounds status. While he is not quite ready to leave foster
care, expressions of interest for Barney may be lodged at this stage.

Barney is sponsored by Allens Linklaters.
