Hey there- my name is BARNEY, approx. 70 lbs of thick brown fur, ample attitude, and stubbornness, and about 8-9 yrs. old. - that is what in a nutshell you would get by adopting me. I am always into a walk or 'patrolling a fenced property' to make sure I have everything under control and being not keen of having a 'male partner in my life and close 'pack- unless it is a small dog that does not contest my 'guardianship role' and gets it right away that I am the boss. I have a friend like this now. But there is so much more: at the beginning I will be shying off and possibly be keener to approach a woman than a man. People always do the same mistake and see me as a teddy bear that they want to hug. I do not like that. I like to take my time with you - just be a strong assertive pack leader. And just wait until I have sniffed you out enough that I come and lick your hand. Then we can build on that. I can care less for cats and basically ignore them, but I absolutely can live with cats. I do so now. Toddlers or children that are too noisy and disrespectful - NO Thank you. I think I will prefer an adult household only - with you always around. Travelling in cars: I love it. But remember you are lifting around 70lbs of character into the car. I also have sometimes 'bad hair days' when I will growl at you- for really no reason. But I am aware that this will scare someone off with a faint heart- strong voice and command from your side- and we have an understanding. I am very serious guy but I can be funny, too -trust me. If a little bit of this entices you to get in contact with the rescue, please email the founder at [email protected] The first thing that will happen is then a phone call as we want to get to know you better and we are sure you have a lot of questions. if you send this email, say already a bit about you and send some photos. i'd love that. Looking forward to getting mail from you. Woofly yours, BARNEY August 2022
