Adopt this Pet: Barney

He’ll love you. Won’t you say you love him, too?

Barney is a great name. For Homer Simpson and Fred Flinstone, it’s a good friend. For the town of Mayberry, it’s the loyal deputy sheriff. And for most kids, the purple blob of a dinosaur named Barney is the coolest. Another great Barney is temporarily living at the Hilton Head Humane Association and is seeking a new home. This Barney is a 5-year-old hound who was found outside of a local veterinarian’s office. He’s smart, healthy and ready to settle down into your home. This Barney won’t sing and dance, but he will give unconditional love to his new family.
