How APA! describes Barrels:

Barrels is a big, curious, sweetheart of a guy. He's affectionate and people-oriented — just a beautiful boy overall.

What APA! says about Barrels: 

Barrels is easy to leash and can't wait to get out of his kennel for some action. When he's in a quiet outside area or inside, he focuses on his people and shows his loving, sociable side. He is calm for petting and loves to be loved on!

Why APA! says Barrels deserves your love:

Barrels needs an experienced adopter who can help him learn leash skills, obedience and manners. He will thrive in an environment where he has a strong leader to show him the ropes and where he can work for things. Barrels needs to be the only pet in the home. Since he's a big, strong guy, a home with teens and adults would be best. All APA! adoptions come with free behavior assistance through APA!'s behavior team.
