Hi, my name's Barney and I'm a five-year-old border collie. I'm a "second-hand" dog and had a rough start in life but am much happier these days! At first, I was scared of everything but I'm much braver now. Mum says I am very clever (I know over 50 tricks) and I do enjoy showing off sometimes. Earlier this year, I got to visit an old-people's home and showed the residents lots of my tricks. It was fantastic; they gave me heaps of treats and cuddles afterward! Hope I can go back again soon! As well as performing tricks and getting cuddled, I love to run, swim, climb trees, play fetch and herd my mum around the fields every day.
