Barney was brought to the ScPA by the police in Limoux who found this young lad straying. We were immediately contacted by someone who recognised the dog as being the companion of a homeless man who lives in the region. Now often homeless people are fabulous owners and adore their dogs. However we all know that life can change very quickly. Offers of lodgings often preclude dog ownership for example. We have no idea why Barney has not been reclaimed. As the dog of a homeless person, however, he will have a great cv. Dogs who live this kind of life are generally very calm and gentle; they are used to socialising with other people and dogs, and generally walk well without a lead. If Barney turns out to be typical, he will make a wonderful family pet. And at just a year old, this labrador cross has his whole life ahead of him.
