We adopted Barnacle from a local rescue. He is definitely the smallest puppy we've ever had at only 1.5 pounds when we picked him up--and all of our previous/older dogs are terrier mixes, so that's saying something! He's a whopping 5.5 pounds now and, despite his small size, is probably the rowdiest puppy we've ever had. Watching his antics as he tears around the house playing with his older terrier siblings is great entertainment, but he's equally snuggly and calm when he's finally tired himself out. We're looking forward to many years of joy and hilarity with Barney!
