Barney is a lovely 18 month old greyhound currently in resuce with Kerry Greyhound Connection.

Barney is a special dog looking for a very special family or foster home. He hasn’t had much contact with people when growing up, and what little he did have wasn’t great as he is very timid with people. Barney pushes himself into a corner and doesn’t move when you go near him.

He will need a family that can give him his own personal space, and allow him to seek human company in his own time, and not be forced into new and terrifying situations. Fortunately, he loves the company of other dogs, and this can be a useful tool to get Barney to interact and become part of the family. He has made a small bit of progress in the short time he has been with us, but really needs to be in a foster home. It is going to take a long time for Barney to realise that people can be friends.
He is currently in Ireland, but he can be transported to the UK using our own transport and dedicated volunteers.
