Barney
Guardian Angel Basset Rescue
Guardian Angel Basset Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving Illinois, Indiana and the St. Louis, Mo. area
Here’s 10 y/o Barney!  He was well taken care of, but his owner took a job which took
more time away from Barney. He’s completely housetrained and barks only when he has
to go out. He also goes into a crate easily, is quiet and will keep it clean.

Barney came in weighing 89 lbs but since then has lost over 10 lbs. and continues to stay
on his Hill’s Metabolic diet.  He now has a lot of loose skin and needs to keep his
underarms and skin flaps around his underside dry from trapping bacteria.

We don’t know about children but he’s good with other dogs and cats.  He’s not a
countersurfer and the only real quirk he has is that he’s possessive of paper products
like, paper towels, napkins, kleenex, etc.  So you have to make an exchange for a high
value treat and according to his foster Mom Kim, he will drop them.  He knows sit, down,
stay, off and will lay down on his side for you to do any care.

Kim said Barney’s the perfect balance between loving attention and liking his own space.  
He may be a little shy at first, but then lays down and exposes his belly when you
approach him.  He’ll be a sweet addition to your family.
