Barnabus is always happy to see us show up in front of his kennel with a leash, ready for a long walk or even a run. This handsome five year old basset mix shows classic hound behavior on his walks – he’s either sniffing intently all around him or swiveling his nose in the air as he picks up scents all along the way. He has fun and so do we.
Note that Barnabus needs a home with children twelve or older. He seems to get along fine with the dogs at the shelter and should be good with other dogs in the house.
Pet meet and greets are by appointment only, so if you’d like to meet him, submit an application in advance by going to the shelter’s Adopting a Pet page at https://www.co.clatsop.or.us/animalcontrol/page/adopting-pet. Scroll to the bottom of the page for the application. Be sure to date it next to the signature line (applications are reviewed in the order they are received) and put the name of the animal you are interested in at the top. You can then save the application to your computer and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or deliver it directly to the shelter. Application forms are also available on the front door of the shelter and can be filled out and turned in on the spot. A shelter staff member will review the app and call you to set up an appointment.
