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.Video: Barley enjoying a walkVideo: Barley would definitely like a treatVideo: Barley knows bestVideo: Snowy & Barley walkingHis 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.
