Barney needs a home

Barney is a 1-year-old neutered brown and white shepherd-retriever mix.

“Hello, my name is Barney! I was transferred from Kokomo Humane Society to the Allen County SPCA.

“I am such a good boy with a great personality! I do well with my housebreaking but will need an adjustment period when I come home with you. The staff recommends you crate train me to help me with this transition.

“I will need daily exercise to keep me happy and to enjoy the weather! I will need frequent brushing to keep my coat in good shape. The staff feels I would do well with children of any age as long as they teat me nicely. I do well with other dogs and didn’t seem to mind the cat during my assessment.

“If you are ready to open your home to a good boy like me please visit me today!”

He is available for adoption at the Allen County SPCA, 4914 Hanna St.

The shelter is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
