Well helloooo there! Nice to meet you!

***Come meet Barney and other, great adoptable dogs this Sun. (Mar. 5) from 12 – 2 PM at the Unleashed by Petco (5400 Lee Hwy, Arlington, VA 22207)***


Name: Barney    Breed: Lab/Bassett Mix

Approximate Age: 3 years     SEX: male

Approximate Weight: 30 pounds

Has Lived With: dogs

Currently Living at: DC foster

Special adoption considerations: Being treated for heartworm in South Carolina.


Barney is an absolutely wonderful dog!  He loves his walks and trips to the dog park and is working on his "on leash" manners.  He is very food motivated and highly trainable!  Barney lives happily with our 3 cats even though he does occasionally chase them for play time.  He absolutely LOVED our two 5 mo old foster kittens and became best friends with them while they were with us.  Barney seems to get along with kids when we meet them outside, but we don't know if he has ever lived with a child.  We think he would be fine though!  At home Barney is very chill and has learned that cuddling is the absolute best thing ever! He is very smart and listens extremely well. He has been sleeping well in his crate at night.  Barney will make an absolutely great companion and any family will be extremely lucky to have him!

Meet Barney! This outgoing 3-year-old lab/bassett mix boy is as sweet as can be! At about 30 pounds, he is very kind, energetic and affectionate toward everyone he meets (animal or human)!

Barney has a playful, active and curious personality and will need mental and physical stimulation on a daily basis. He loves playing with other dogs and always looks forward to his dog walks, so trips to the dog park or doggie daycare would be great!

Barney is still a young dog, and he will need a committed owner to provide training and exercise to be a well-behaved dog.

Barney is dreaming of finding a warm and loving forever home! All he needs is a caring person or family to give him all the love and care (and treats!) he deserves!

Like most shelter dogs, Barney may need a refresher on housetraining. He is likely crate trained.

Barney has tested positive and is being treated for for Heartworm disease. Heartworm is not contagious to people or other pets, but results from mosquito bites.  Heartworm, if left untreated, is life threatening, but after treatment, dogs that were heartworm positive should suffer no significant long-term effects so long as they are kept on a monthly heartworm preventative.

The adoption fee for this dog is $450, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Emily Jagdmann at!
