We don't know barney's life before A New Leash for Life rescue, what we do know is he has been let down by someone and needs time to learn to trust again and he will become your best companion .
Hi, my name is Barney Boy aka "Super Boy." I have been here for a few weeks and live with my foster mum and dad and their resident dog Tessa.
I think I like it here, especially when my human sister and family come round because I get lots of cuddles. I have a garden to play in, and I do like to play although Tessa is not very playful but I do try.
Mum says I always do my toilet outside and I have had no accidents so that is good. I also sleep thru the night, another plus for me.
After four days a parcel arrived and I was told it was for me....it was a new harness! I knew what that meant.... we can go out! Yay!!
Opposite our house, you go up a slope to a large field, so off I went with mum. It was pretty scary and once at the top I froze and I could not move; it was too scary, but luckily, after about thirty minutes, a nice young man offered to carry me home so I was really pleased about that, I was glad to get home to where I feel safe. Next day, we all went out together, me, my foster mum and dad as well as Tessa.
This time we did not go to the scary field but just went round the block which I liked and mum said I walked really well for a first time.
Big, brave boy that I am, I now go to the field every day and love it. I would like to run free but mum says I am not ready for that yet.
I am getting used to other dogs and their owners and I have also encountered a few cars and a motorbike; mum said it was good because I did not react.
I have been home alone a couple of times and take the opportunity to have a snooze on the sofa but I did sit up on the windowsill when I heard them come home.
I love my cuddles, I get lots of those and in the evening often sit on the sofa with mum and watch tv. I think I would like to stay here but mum says if I find a forever home then it will leave room here for another little fur baby here to start their new life just like me.
I would like somewhere I can go on long walks and have a comfy, warm bed. Love you all Barney Boy xx
