    Shelter Dog Sunday - Barney

    NewsShelter Dog SundayThursday 15 March 2018

    Every Sunday we run a special feature on a rescue dog looking for a loving home. This week, the spotlight is on Barney, a handsome Lurcher who will be more than happy to spend his life with a forever family. 

    Battersea and Cats Home is the well-known backdrop of ITV's Paul O'Grady - For The Love Of Dogs but what you see on the show is only a fraction of the work that the shelter do. Battersea takes on over 9000 cats and dogs a year, including Barney, a young boy with a heart of gold now looking for a forever loving family.

    Name: Barney

    Breed: Lurcher

    Sex: Male

    Age: 1 years 6 months

    Centre: London

    Reference: 362314

    Bashful Barney, our sweet sensitive lurcher who finds the world a bit scary! He will need a loving family who will help him build his confidence and to learn new people are not something to be afraid of.

    He already has made friends with staff and volunteers here but is now ready to find his paws in the wide world. Once he comes out of his shell, and bonded with his new owners, you will see a scatty playful side of this boy, who love toys, a nice fuss and just being with his favourite humans.

    If you can give Barney the time he needs and are willing to slightly bribe him with some cheese, although he will always have a sensitive side to him, you will be rewarded with a loyal, fun-loving dog.

    He's already stolen our hearts; will you be next?

    To meet Barney, please contact Battersea Dogs & Cats Home’s London centre on 0843 509 4444.
