The bigger the better- that’s Barney’s motto! This extra large boy is a Great Pyrenees; emphasis on the “great!” He came into our care as a stray, and we wonder if maybe his previous home could not meet the needs of this special breed. For this reason, we would love to find bodacious Barney an adopter who has some experience with his breed, or who has done some thorough research! Barney loves to curl up and snuggle, but is also boisterous and playful too! He will need some training on appropriate play, but we think he this young boy is quick to learn. Barney would thrive in a home with a fenced yard and children over 6 years in age. His adoption fee will be $230, which includes his current core vaccines and dewormer, his microchip, and his neuter surgery. Please come into the shelter and give this big, beautiful guy a visit today!
