BARRY is a big, bouncy boy... but thinks he is still a tiny lap-puppy. His hobbies include counter-surfing, drinking out of the toilet, convincing foster mom he is *constantly* starving, bringing all the toys outside, play-play-playing as much as he can   & growing like a weed.

Barry is housetrained & crate trained, but could use some work on his leash skills.  A family cat or small furry pet is likely to trigger Barry's hunting hound side, so he is seeking a furever family without those please.   People of all types are awesome, but school age humans are best (young kids might get accidentally knocked over).

Barry will do best in an ACTIVE home who has a securely fenced yard... or is willing to 110% commit to frequent & extensive leash walking/running so he can work out all his happy wiggles (he's got a TON!).  An adopter that will commit to continued training (and perhaps even puppy classes with a trainer) would be very beneficial to help Barry gain confidence & continue on the right path.

If you think BARRY is the dog for you, please fill out an adoption application today!

BARRY  is available for adoption through K-9 Rescue of the Eastern Shore.

An adoption process is required to include filling out an online adoption application available at the following link --

Veterinary and personal reference checks, and a home visit/meet-n-greet are required PRIOR to being approved to adopt.   The time frame for completing this process depends largely on how quickly references respond, your vet office is able to speak to us (some want written permission first), your landlord or HOA (if applicable) confirms their approval for a pet, & how your schedule aligns with that of our volunteer(s) for the Home Visit.
PLEASE NOTE ~ All of our rescue members are volunteers with many obligations. While we may not be capable of immediate response, we will respond to all inquiries and application submissions as soon as possible. Thank you for thinking adoption!
