Barcelona's Story

Have you always dreamed of international travel but dread that long flight and pesky security line?  Well you’re in luck, we’ve brought Barcelona to you!  Well he may not be the beautiful Spanish city but he’s a pretty close second with his dashingly good looks!  Take another look at his photo.  Handsome, right?  He may not have world famous architecture or art but he would love to dazzle you with his brilliance in training class!  He is highly food motivated and does know a few commands already.  Barcelona would love to continue learning and showing off for you!  He would also enjoy being your co-pilot on a nice drive or walk through the neighborhood.  He can get a bit distracted by the excitement of the world, so quieter streets without a lot of dog traffic are his preference.

Barcelona did spend a short time in a foster home where we have learned that he is mostly housebroken!  This little gentleman loves his human and his home so much, that he prefers not to share and he would do best in a quiet home with no children or other pets and an experienced owner.  Since he is protective of his home, an owner who knows his breed and can introduce new people into his environment with care would be his dream come true!  Who needs travel to faraway places when you can bask in all the warmth and sunshine of this sweet gentleman’s love right in your own home!  You will be greeted with wild tail wags and he will leap into arms for a good cuddle!  His best day will be spent with you and he’ll be happy to watch a movie or listen to you chat about your hopes and dreams.  Don’t worry- he won’t tell a soul!  His little heart will be will hold so much love for you, he’d love it if he didn’t need to spend a long time alone.  Think Barcelona might be just the right fit for your home?  Then you have to meet him!  Stop by the Lincoln Park Adoption Center and say hello to this sweet boy!


Did someone say 'treat'?  I'll take them all!

I'll take as much exercise as I can get!

I'm a people person.

Squeak!  Squeak!  I love Squeaky chew toys!

Cuddles!  I love a good lap to curl up on.


I prefer to be the only pet in the home.

I would love to find an adults-only home.
