Adopt Me: Handsome Barney is basically an overgrown puppy (adopted)

He is looking for someone to help him with his confidence and show him the world

CollingwoodToday, in partnership with the Georgian Triangle Humane Society, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Hi all, my name is Barney. I've been deemed the "handsome boy" of the kennel here at the shelter.

In fact, it's a little hard to get things done around here because the human ladies are allllways petting me, telling me what a good boy I am, taking me for walks, and giving me snuggles. It's a tough job being the best-looking pup around here, but someone's got to do it!

I actually haven't even been here at the GTHS for that long, but I'm already so excited to find a loving new home.

I'm quite a big (and I mean real big) boy as well but I'm also a giant softy. You wouldn't think that a guy of such large stature would be shy, but I am. I'm a sensitive boy who responds best to a soft voice and kind touch.

Finding someone to help me with my confidence and show me the world would be just perfect for a guy like me. Just think of me as an overgrown puppy who has a lot to learn! I love to please and will make an absolutely amazing best friend for the right person.

If you think it sounds like you and I would be a great match, then you should definitely come meet me!

Please make a trip over to the shelter and talk with our Adoption Counselors to learn more about me. The GTHS is open for adoptions from 12 p.m. - 4 p.m., every single day of the week and they would be happy to introduce you to me! I can't wait to meet you and look forward to starting my new life with my new family soon.
