Barney is super sweet and lovable and would be more than happy to spend an hour or more sniffing around your fenced in back yard. Sometimes he gets excited and does a couple of sprints. It's super cute. When it's time to come back in the house, he may be either a little slow, enjoying the scents around the yard, or be waiting for you. He very much enjoys cuddle time and he also loves lots of back scratches and kisses.
Barney does really well with other friendly dogs, and seems to basically ignore cats. He will need to have his nails trimmed regularly as they tend to curl into his pads, and he will need to have his ears cleaned regularly or they may become infected, which is typical of his breed.

All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.
It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. Both PetSmart and the Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offer a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
