BARNABY is an approximately 5 year old chocolate-colored miniature schnauzer / wire-haired terrier mix. He is a cute little button with a big attitude! Sometimes he wants to cuddle, sometimes he just wants to be left alone. He likes to collect toys, but will only play with them with you. He does not like to be crated, but prefers a big doggie bed, or your lap, to nap on. He enjoys daily walks and is now used to a leash. He does like to run around the back yard, rolling in the warm grass and exploring every nook and cranny. He seems to want a like-sized companion, but careful introductions to other pets would be required. Big dogs seem to frighten him.
BARNABY is up-to-date on his vaccines and de-wormed. His heartworm test in June 2016 indicated that he is very, very low HW+ (as in barely registered), so he is due to be retested in December 2016. He is currently on a standard heartworm preventive once per month. He will need to remain on heartworm preventive for the rest of his life.
BARNABY was found on a main street in a suburb to the north west of Houston. He was dodging traffic and chased into a neighborhood for his own safety. With a lot of time and patience, he was finally leashed and taken to a foster home.
BARNABY will need an owner with small dog experience and patience. He is a diamond in the rough, looking for the right family to make him shine! He will do best in a home with no small children or large pets.
If you are interested in adoption, please complete an adoption application at www.HHFRescue.org. Thank you for considering a rescued dog!
The adoption fee includes vaccinations, bordetella, deworming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is an additional $10.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip. If adopting a puppy, the rabies and spay/neuter will be done at the same time by our vet once they are 4 months old and billed to us. It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
