This is the story of Barnaby
Barnaby, a Labrador Retriever / Chow Chow mix, came into Bond County Humane Society in March 2016, surrendered along with another large dog by an owner who simply had too many animals in their home to care for.
Barnaby was 2 1/2 years old and tested heartworm positive. His dog friend he was surrendered with got adopted right away while Barnaby endured the medical treatment and rest period required to deal with his heartworm disease.
But with such a gentle, cuddly disposition, housetraining, and a good history of living with younger children,
Barnaby found his furever family July 16 and went home to Scott Air Force Base.
Here are a couple of email notes they've shared with us:
Rachel and Bond County Humane Society,
We just wanted to thank you for trusting us with Barnaby! What a gentle giant he is!
We are loving this guy - We hit the doggie lottery!! - and are thankful he is a part of our family. Hopefully we can bring him by Petco for a Saturday visit sometime soon. He is adjusting well and we are starting to see
more of his personality every day. Here are a few pictures of our first days together. We haven't taken one of all four of us yet.
