Barbara is a bundle of energy! If you’ve got an active lifestyle and love getting stuck into dog training, then Barbara might be the dog for you!

Barbara is quite strong willed and she’s an intelligent girl, so she needs a family who are on their toes and ready for a cheeky housemate! She’s quite independent and not demanding of affection – she’ll come for cuddles when she’s ready, otherwise she’s happy to lay on the floor and enjoy her own space.

We’re looking for an adult only home, or a home with teenagers for Barbara because she is lively and boisterous and likely to cause tumbles with younger children. She is a mouthy doggy and sometimes this can hurt, even though that’s not her intention. There are some great dog trainers on Youtube whose videos you can watch to help with training, without using intimidation. See the video below.

Barbara, like quite a few dogs, is not keen on reflective fabrics on outdoor clothing (like postal uniforms for eg) and has shown aggression to people wearing reflective clothing. Please be aware of this and be cautious around people in uniforms etc




To adopt Barbara, please complete our adoption application form. We welcome applications from across Lancashire but unfortunately we are unable to consider applications from further afield. Homeless Hounds cannot rehome dogs to families with children under the age of 5. Home check and adoption donation applies. Thank you
