FINE WITH CATS
KIND, CARING FAMILY WHO LIKE SHORT WALKS
Barney is an 8 year old Maltese cross Yorkie described by his foster mum as the most lovely dog who is always happy to see you and wags his tail furiously like a helicopter when you talk to him. He has been a much loved pet for his whole life but sadly his owners ill health has meant he has come into rescue, so it’s a life change for Barney so any adopters will need to be patient with him while he adjusts. He is a tiny dog, weighing only 4kg and loves nothing more than curling up with you on the sofa and following you around the house checking what you are up to
Barney as an older dog has no current health issues, but any new home should research costs of insuring an older dog to provide him with veterinary care if he should need it later in life
Barney loves people, he can sometimes be overwhelmed around a lot of people, but in the home he is a total cuddle monster and will cry if not with his people so any potential adopters should be prepared to let him sleep upstairs initially until he is settled
Barney is a tiny dog so wouldn’t suit very young children but could be homed with older children. He currently lives with a cat and ignores him totally
Barney is a lovely boy who follows you from room to room, he isn’t a fan of being left and will initially cry if left, but this is improving as he settles in the foster home. He is housetrained but has had a couple of accidents in the foster home which we are sure is due to the stress of moving from the only home he has ever known. Any prospective owners should be prepared to work with Barney on this if it continues in a new home.
As a tiny dog sometimes Barney can find being picked up or crowded a bit scary and will squeak or do a small growl but this is in no way aggressive it is Barneys way of communicating and new owners should be experienced with tiny toy dogs to understand this and be patient while Barney settles into a new home
Barney currently sleeps upstairs with his foster mum and sleeps right through so new adopters should be prepared to continue this to give him some support while he settles.
Barney will happily walk with you off lead and loves his walks. As a tiny dog he doesn’t need huge walks but he is also a dog very happy to go out exploring with you
Barney needs a home experienced with his breeds or toy dog’s, a home where someone is home the majority of the day and a home where Barney will be treated like royalty as he expects. He is an older dog so needs a home that will have patience while he settles in as he has been a much loved pet for his life so may struggle to adapt longer than a dog that was mistreated.
Barney would happily live with another toy breed or also be fine as an only dog in the home. He has very long hair normally so his new home will need to have researched grooming costs and have a groomer that is able to groom him regularly to prevent his coat from matting. Barney will make a lovely companion and being slightly older will not need a huge amount of exercise each day. He just needs to find his new best friend.
