As you look at this photo of Barney, ask yourself how such a beautiful dog could end up in a high-kill New York shelter.
Barney was a good boy for his medical exam and allowed all handling. He was nervous, but not aggressive. His calm disposition means he would make a great addition to almost any family. Given his age, he most likely would prefer a mature home, where he can be loved in the manner he was accustomed to for so many years.
As for his health, Barney has moderate dental tartar and mild ocular clouding. He’s also missing a few incisors.
If you can offer Barney a loving home, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and be sure to put Barney’s name and ID number in the subject line.
Please share Barney with friends in the New York area who are looking to adopt an older, more settled pet. Those who stay in touch with the New Hope approved rescues are asked to contact at least three of them, to ensure at least one steps up for Barney in time to save his life.
