Cute canine looking for love of the furry-kind this Valentine’s Day

The team at Dogs Trust Snetterton are hoping that love of the furry-kind is in the air for one of their canine residents this Valentine’s Day. 

Border Collie, Barney, is a shy but friendly young man who is looking to find a new forever home with some doggie companions, as well as two legged friends, so he can start to explore all the world has to offer, with his perfect partners by his side. 

Dogs Trust Snetterton Manager, Diane McLelland-Taylor, says: 

“Barney really is a beautiful boy but he doesn’t have much confidence so as well as looking for love of the human kind, we want to find a home where he can learn to love life thanks to being able to follow in the paw-steps of some very special doggie friends.” 

Barney, who is one years old, is getting lots of TLC in a foster home where he is currently living with two other dogs. He has already started to make great strides in terms of understanding that the world isn’t such a scary place and his foster carers say his cheeky personality is really starting to shine through. 

Diane says: 

“His foster carers say he is really playful and rummages in the toy box to decide what toy he’d like to play with, which is usually one that squeaks! 

“They also say he loves going on day trips to explore new places as long as he has his doggie friends with him, and he gets really excited when he goes somewhere new. 

“He loves his food and his foster carers say he is adorable when they are getting his meals ready as he just sits and waits patiently. He really is a great dog who just needs the love of people and four-legged friends if he is to enjoy life to the full. In return he will be a life-long loyal, faithful companion and you can’t ask for more than that!”   

Barney needs a patient adult only home away from the hustle and bustle where he can relax and enjoy his new life. He would like to meet his new family a few times before heading home with them so he can begin to build a bond.

If you think Barney could be your perfect match and you have a canine companion that could be the love of his life, please contact the centre on 0300 303 0292.
