More Details

About Brady

Brady is the super social one, he's a bit nosey with people and other dogs --but doesn't do so in a malicious way. Though because of this habit he has been nipped/bit a few times and usually learns his lesson immediately not to be so nosey. (that piece of his ear that's missing that one was a golden story).

  • Sex: Male
  • Age: 5 years, 1 month old
  • Weight: 62 lbs
  • Breed: Catahoula Cur & Mixed
  • Tracking Chip: Yes
  • Neutered: Yes
  • House Trained: Yes
  • Gets along with children: No
    He's a bit skittish around kids, especially if they are running because he likes to chase me/other adults when played with.
  • Gets along with other dogs: Yes
    Loves all dogs, likes to tussle, sniff and run with others.
  • Gets along with cats: Yes
    all cats so far ignore him, and I think he might be scared of them.

About Barney

We (Brady and I) have known Barney since he was adopted, almost 6 years ago--Barney was my best friend Tim's dog and they lived near us in NYC. Tim got married and his then wife got pregnant and Barney unfortunately didn't get as much attention as he could (also living in an apartment complex isn't conducive to much exercise). Last year Tim and his wife got a divorce, making the whole situation even more stressful for everyone involved including Barney. When I decided that I was going to take a 2 year break from NYC --(this February, 2019) --I decided to offer taking Barney with me --as we would be staying with my sister who has a big backyard and lives in Dickinson. The move has been great for Barney, about 75% of his anxiety/stress is gone but he still has some episodes but he is a very docile creature, who thinks he's a lapdog and likes to try and jump and give you kisses.

  • Sex: Male

  • Weight: 80 lbs

    Barney will hold it all day if he could, he has to be told "Barney, bathroom" for him to go out--he's the laziest dog I've ever met --but he will then have spouts of energy where he starts barking and he wants you to play with him (usually tug of war is his thing)
  • Gets along with children: Yes
  • Gets along with other dogs: Yes
    Doesn’t like German Shepherds
  • Gets along with cats: No

Special Requirements

Barney is a very anxious dog, he was on a lot of medication when I adopted him and we have weened him off of it because he had become very lethargic. But he's naturally spooked by things like Thunder/Lightning -hates rain --and he'll find a spot to settle in while things pass.
