I've been adopted! 

Say hello to Barney, a sweet landseer who is looking for a loving home.

This handsome 8 year old boy is gentle and loving and will make a great companion for the right family.  He is used to being around children and could join a home with older children.

Friendly and gentle, Barney gets along with everyone he meets.  He has great doggie social skills and could happily join a family with another 4 footed playmate of canine or feline persuasion.

Barney has been bounced around recently and is a bit stressed out by this.  The stability of a loving adoptive home will quickly help him come around.  Ideally, he would like a family where someone is home more often than not.

Barney is gentle, well mannered and knows basic commands.  He is a wonderful boy who is friendly and affectionate.  Barney can get a bit anxious in new situation and needs to be reminded not to pull on the leash or elbow his way to the door.  With a gentle, but firm reminder as to what is expected of him, he will settle right back into the wonderful, easy-going fella his foster family loves.  Car rides are something he delights in and he will happily hop into the car when invited.

He has been neutered,vaccinated and is in good health.

Barney is being fostered in the Ottawa area.  His adoptive family will be required to pick him up in person.  Because he is a senior a reduced adoption donation of $400 applies.
