The organization said he needs patient owners who are willing to potty train him and teach him how to travel by car.
Barney will also need regular grooming and haircuts in his new home, but because this will be so unfamiliar, it should be done slowly and be a “positive experience”.
According to the Kennel Club, Old English Sheepdogs need daily grooming and a large yard. In Barney’s case, this also means a six-foot fence to make sure he doesn’t escape.
Despite his lack of socialization, he enjoys meeting other animals and can be rehomed to a family that already has a neutered dog.
Since being admitted by the RSPCA, Barney has started to enjoy walking and playing with toys, especially football.
‘Barney has not had a great start in life’
According to his profile, “Barney has not had a great start to his life, he has never left his previous home and he is five years old, you can imagine how much he has missed.
“Barney has had a really hard time and he is becoming such a loving dog and really deserves the best.
In October, the RSPCA said the crisis in the cost of living led to more animals being given up by their owners, while fewer people were willing to adopt a new pet.
In 2021, the RSPCA rehomed 26,945 animals – an 8 percent drop from the previous year and a drop of nearly a third since 2019.
