Barry is a 6 year old, 80 lb Boxer mix. Here is what foster mom says about Barry: "Barry is a kind and gentle dog with the gentlest of dispositions and a heart as pure as gold. While he may, in fact, be the most loveable dog to have ever walked the Earth, he is not without his flaws. Barry can seem rather bull-headed, and marches to the beat of his own drummer. Relentless attempts to train him on basic commands, or to come when he’s called even, have been fruitless. There was a theory that perhaps he is hard of hearing, but that has not been confirmed by a doctor, so it seems he may just be selective about what he hears and how he reacts. His instincts are inoffensive and benevolent. His vision is impaired, so he requires special attention when going on walks through the neighborhood, as he is prone to stumbling over curbs and needs extra help navigating stairwells. He can get around a home just fine, but may trip over toys or objects left out of place, which have been known to cause him injury, so special attention is required for Barry’s prosperity. While Barry’s life is challenged, he is resilient and happy, and will assimilate beautifully into any responsible and patient family. Barry is a lush for affection. If there’s a hand nearby with pets and scratches to offer, Barry will find it and stick by like glue. He will disregard his monstrous size and try to crawl into your lap if you let him. He is a loyal companion, and the kind of dog that true best friends are made of.
