Homing Requirements: Barley is inept with dogs and is learning to trust people. He needs a family who knows how to support a terrier, manage him with loving care, and promote his sense of self worth. TerrierRescue promotes a non-confrontational approach based on loving kindness and lots of forgiveness. We believe in a respectful approach: our terriers are their own people. Barley needs to learn to be at the heart of a family and to be involved in activities relating to his needs and fulfilment. A secure garden and exit management are required as with any terrier. Barley needs to be an only pet and is not for live-in or stay-over children.

His Story: Barley was taken in by a son who then left home; Barley ended up staying with the son's self-confessed "non doggie" mother. He was kept in the kitchen, conservatory, and garden. TerrierRescue was approached to help find a terrier family to provide for his needs. Our vet has operated on Barley to correct a problem 'down below' to alleviate repeated infections; Barley needs to be kept hydrated. Barley is neutered, chipped and vax'd and is now in kennels in Godstone, Surrey.

Advert: Barley is a lovely terrier. He loves his walks and is learning to be walked with other dogs whilst at the kennels. Barley travels well in the car; he is housetrained and affectionate. Barley is joyful in encounters but needs respect around his space and is nervous of sudden movements. It may be best for him not to be allowed on the sofa as he has bitten out of nerves when disturbed suddenly. Barley settle and is happy in his own company.

Barley is a beautiful Parson's Jack Russell who is 7 years old. He is ready to come into a confident and patient family's care to bring him through his nerves so he can explore his skills. He is too nervous to be an integrated family member
and will need his space respected until he learns to share. Barley needs a special family to very gradually build trust. He is absolutely adorable.

Well Barley changed his kennel during the week to be in the terrier block where he is meeting Kennel staff and Voluntary walkers directly on entry. He needs a respectful approach where there is the air of negotiation. We went into the walkers room today and I changed his harness. It took a little time as he is slightly wary of direct contactfrom strangers but gushing in his offer of affection at the same time. We managed it well, once I could gain his co-operation on the task at hand and not to be exploring everywhere and everything. :D

We had a lovely walk on the extender lead. He met several dogs on lead as a 5 yard distance and did very well just a squeak on leaving and a circling back The dogs in question didn't really need to meet a terrier so all was cordial and good.

Barley is just finishing his 7 day course of Panacur to ensure he hasn't lungworm as a matter of course for our incoming dogs. Today he was flea treated and will have a bath after the weekend. Happy Chappie!

Barley has settled well with us at Godstone and welcomed me really well into his kennel, just very excited to be going out. He has the prettiest of markings and is a true terrier. He would delight terrier people and I have to say was a joy to be with. Hope his new home is just around the corner...

Met this little man for the first time yesterday - what a joy. Took a little while to get his harness on because he was so excited.

Then decided I would walk him today on the charity walk (Tim was walking Snowy). He was a little vocal on the journey to Ashdown Forest. At first I wondered if we would make it all the way round because Barley kept lying down. I wasn't to concerned because he would fit in Tim's rucksack. But the more we walked the more alive he became towards the end sniffing every blade ! He was a little star and I will definitely be going back to walk him.

Had a wonderful walk and him and Snowy were perfect gentlemen!

Collected Barley for the walk - he was very excited to see me and once we got the harness on it was a brisk walk to the car - he sat in the front with Rachel - On the walk we were accompanied by Dexter and Pepsi - he was aboslutely smashing, didn't react at all to the other dogs and joined me in the queue for a well deserved bacon roll & cup of tea where there were pleny of other dogs around - no reaction at all.

No sleeps on the way back as he was far too interested on what's going on around him or did Dexter's snoring keep him awake :)

Barley boy has come home with me for a couple of nights fun and rest :D

He found all the toys when we got in tonight and had so much fun !
He was very excited to be up late and wanted to make the most of every moment. He's loved moving in for a cuddle and not at all keen on me writing up today's walks on the ipad, he thinks he should be on my lap not the ipad !

He's just been out to the garden for a widdle and now atlast he having a rest next to me on the sofa so typing one handed is the deal I've done with him !!!!

Feast your eyes on this fabulous little fella :love4:

What a little gem Barley is :)

Such a good boy overnight, offered him choice of his bed next to mine or on my bed, yes, he chose my bed !!! Slept through, curled up and snuggled next to me :love4:

Happy to wake up when I did, completely housetrained, no question of that. Out into the garden for his business and then happy to wait on my bed (it's a hard life !!)!whilst I had a shower. He just loves, walk, rest and play !

Very affectionate boy, got a few precious kisses this morning :kiss:

Barleys been such a good boy today. Accompanied me this afternoon in the car on a few odd jobs, perfect boy. Yesterday he travelled in the crate, today without the crate, he tried out the back seat for a snooze, the passenger seat and also the footwell, very good wherever he was, think he enjoyed the fact that sat on passenger seat he got ear rubs aswell :)

He's had 2 nice local walks on the extender, he does love to sniff and then leave his mark every few yards ! We weren't in a rush so I let him sniff to his hearts content ! Pleased to be out and about but as you can see from piccie below, pleased to be home too !!!

Here's some more pics of the gorgeous little guy ...

On my bed this morning...

Very focused on his ball...

And here, look closely and you'll spot his 'yoghurt moustache' !!! I gave him a scoop of natural yoghurt in his bowl after his breakfast and he very much liked it ! Whilst I think about it, must also tell you what a good boy he is waiting for his breakkie/dinner, he watches patiently as I prepare it in his bowl and then does the most fabulous 'sit' without even being asked before you put the bowl down :D good good boy Barley :D

And close up 'yoghurt moustache'...

Fuss time...little angel :)

Just had one of those priceless foster moments that make you :) :woo: :)

Barley had been enjoying lots of deep sleep just along the sofa from me, very contented snortling coming from him. I called his name very quietly and up came his head and he looked round, just then in that moment, I could see what was going through his head, he'd been sleeping so deeply he'd forgotten where he was and the sheer joy in his eyes as he realised he was on a nice warm sofa, he then frog crawled along the sofa and slithered onto my lap and gave me a gentle kiss :love4:

Bless xxx
