About Barney

Staffordshire Bull Terrier (SBT)
5 to 7 Years


Barney is looking for a gentle hands off home that will understand that he has had a tough start to life. He is such a happy, loving boy who just needs someone to give him the time and space to settle and build a bond. A quiet home with few visitors would help him settle as he can get a little worried in certain situations.

Type of home needed

Barney loves to have company and would prefer someone around for most of the day but he could be left for a couple of hours. Once he has a bond with you he loves to cuddle in! Barney enjoys playing with doggy friends but can be a little shy at first. As Barney can be worried in certain situations he will need to go to a home with people over the age of 16 years old. He will need a secure garden with a 4.5ft fence so he has somewhere to play and relax.

More about me

Barney loves to play and his favourite game is catching a ball so we hope you have a good throw! He would like some quiet areas in the home where he can put his paws up and have a little space to himself if needed.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Barney, who is based at Glasgow. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. To start the rehoming process you will need to go to a rehoming centre for a quick chat. Please find information below about what to expect during the rehoming process. We hope to see you soon.

  1. The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking your new pet home is just eight days. Every circumstance is different but this brief guide lets you know what you will experience when you decide to rehome a dog from us.
  2. The rehoming centre is your gateway to finding your new pet pooch. When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted in reception by a friendly face.
  3. During this first visit we will take a few details from you so we know what you are looking for. You will be able to visit the dogs and we'll advise you on how to find the right dog for your circumstance and that your circumstances will work for the dog too.
  4. We would like you to get to know your chosen dog before you take him home so, if you have any other dogs or family members, you may need to bring them along for a further visit to ensure the whole family is happy with the decision.
  5. The fee for rehoming a dog is £130 (£110 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees), but every dog is vet checked, microchipped, and neutered as well as a very cool Dogs Trust lead and collar - so we think it's a good deal!
  6. On rehoming your new dog from Dogs Trust you will receive 4 weeks' free insurance from our partner Petplan, this covers your dog for any unexpected illnesses and injuries, for further details and to activate your 4 weeks' free trial visit the Petplan website.
  7. So now you are ready to take your new pal home, just one more step which is a pre-adoption talk. This ensures you are aware of the responsibilities of dog ownership and reminds you that we are always here when you need us!
  8. Get in touch with the centre your dog is located at to arrange a visit.
