From the Foster:

Barney is full of personality and he’s so funny to watch. You will often find him laying upside down in a sunny spot. He’s good natured so he will always greet you with tail wagging and a big smile.

We got a puppy recently and he loves having a buddy but doesn’t want to be left out of short walks and cuddles, he pays close attention to which toys are his and if he’s been left out of some fun. Barney has been very sweet to the puppy and small children who come in our home. Because he gets achy, we think he would do best with older, respectful kids in the house. He wants to be in the middle of the action, observing up close. He is a bulldog so he gets mouthy and isn’t always gentle but he has the sweetest intentions. He likes to chew and his toys help a lot with that urge.

His favorite things: Couch snuggling (he waits for a lift up), his toys (he gathers them from around the house), his personal space heater by his bed (it helps his joints), being outside in the sun, his nightly sweet peppers and veggies as we prepare dinner.

He loves short walks to stretch but hates coming home so will often plop down and lay on his back with his legs up to avoid coming back. Did I mention he loves being outside? Treats are a great motivator for him.

Barney does not bark very often but rather makes a unique sound to get our attention. Think of a balloon releasing air slowly. It’s more of a squeak and it will tell you everything you need to know about what he wants. You will always know what he is thinking (lots of side eye). We feel the best home for Barney would be one with main floor living as more than a few stairs are hard, older kids and lots of out-door time and patience as he’s usually on his own schedule. He will make an amazing and entertaining pet.

Hello! Through the course of my veterinary care at Secondhand Hounds, it was found that I have special medical needs, and I need to take a few different medications to help. Last fall and early this year I underwent hip surgery for bilateral hip dysplasia. My recovery was tough, but luckily I have medications to help keep me comfortable, and I currently go to weekly physical therapy appointments. Potential adopters will need to bring me to my appointments through the end of June, and should work with their primary veterinarian to continue managing my medications so that I can have the best quality of life possible. I also have degenerative joint disease, so it is very important to continue my joint supplements and pain medications. 
 
I also have allergies that are well-controlled with medication. I will need to continue this medication to keep me from itching- and bloodwork should be rechecked every 6 months while on this medication.
My foster and the veterinary team at SHH are happy to answer any questions you have about my care!
