Barron is a 1Â½-year-old Australian cattle dog mix. He’s very playful, loves to greet new and familiar faces, and is OK around other dogs in our play groups. We recommend dog introductions if you happen to have dogs of your own. Barron can be active and would prefer his new family friend to take him on walks and great runs. He has been in our shelter since April and would really love it if he had a new home. Barron’s Operation Kindness ID# 59706.
