Celtic's owners have been located! They were on vacation and someone else was caring for him when the old boy was lost.

Barney - breed unknown. Giant Schnauzer/Bearded Collie/Newf mix?????

Found in the Lindsay area by a Newf Friends volunteer, Barney was running in traffic on highway 35 in a bad rain storm.

Lucky to be alive, Barney is now safe in the care of a Newf Friends foster home while we search for his family.

Local vets/shelters/pet food stores/etc have been notified, and sadly so far no owner has come forward.

Barney's age is unknown - teeth are good but his body condition is poor, extremely overweight/poor coat (hypothyroid?) and gray mustache/eyebrows, possibly a mature dog?

He is being held for 5 working days to try to find his owner, then will be brought under Newf Friends care if nobody has claimed him, and he will be vetted/assessed, and looking for a forever home.
