About Barney Boy:
I'm a happy, laid-back Southern gentleman. You could even call me a Dixie dog: I traveled all the way up here from the South get a better chance of finding a good home. I arrived at the shelter in Texas in October. For a dog of 6.5 years, while that is barely middle age, my chances of finding a home were slim because I was in competition with LOTS of younger dogs. Even the youngsters have a tough time because there are so many.
I love to snuggle and just spend time with my people. I'm looking for a great family to take me home and make me a part of their life. My foster family in Texas felt that I would do best with people or a doggie companion around me. I'm just a soft-hearted fellow. If you think those lucky people I go home with might just be you, come on down to Dakin in Springfield. I'd love to meet you.
