Special Criteria
Sanctuary Visit Required

Barat is a gentle giant, but you wouldn't have known that when he first arrived at the Sanctuary. He used to be very nervous and would bark at everyone who entered his room. He's made amazing progress since coming to Dogtown, and he now greets everyone with a smile and a full body wiggle. He's very mellow and low key and loves snuggling and getting attention. Born in 2015, Barat once lived in a home where he spent most of his time outside. Now that he's loved and cared for, he's thriving. He does still have anxiety, which can make him a flight risk, and he's attempted to escape from his yard at the Sanctuary by trying to chew through fences and bend gates open. He does a lot better when people he's comfortable with are around, but he'll need to find a home where he can be in a secure place when his people aren't home. Barat can be picky with his dog friends and will guard crates and food from other dogs. He's also shown aggression toward cats and can't live with them. At Dogtown, Barat continues to work on his social skills with people and on getting comfortable in new places and in the car. He would love to be in a home where he can truly be part of the family.
