Hello, I’m Barry (in the UK) and I’m Available
Breed: Shepherd cross
Age: 2 years old
Measurements: medium size
Arrived at pound in: January 2021
Barry is a gorgeous dog, originally from a pound in the north of Spain and now waiting for adoption in the UK. He is a two year old very young shepherd cross.
He is currently in foster in the UK where he has been for five months.
Although he is not an aggressive dog we understand that he needs to go through a process of desensitisation to small children. We do not adopt dogs to families with small children and in this case we will be extending this restriction to families that often have very young children (under six years old) such as grandchildren visiting.
It is important to understand that this does not mean that Barry is an aggressive dog towards children. Not at all. He just does not feel comfortable around them and we want our dogs and adopters to feel at ease.
Barry is a very active, playful and loving dog who would suit a family, who have the time to work with him. He is a bit anxious and any prospective adopter will need to work with our in-house professional so he can lose his fears and anxiety.
The foster tells us he reacts to other dogs when on the lead which is a common behavior in pound dogs and can be addressed with a behavior protocol that involves desensitization and counter conditioning. Our charity has a behaviorist who will work with his future family and ensure he makes progress. These protocols are very efficient and will work with time and commitment.
We are rooting for Barry and we cannot wait for him to be in his forever home.
If you feel that you can help give Barry the loving home he deserves please fill in our application form here.
