This is Barney, a 4-5 months old lab/hound mix who’s such a good boy!
He already knows ‘sit’ and ‘down’ and would love to learn more commands. He is very, very, very attentive and would be a star pupil at puppy school.
Barney also loves to be petted and to be near you. In fact, if you move around, he will follow you and quietly sit when you stop. If it looks like you will be stopping for a while, he will lie down with his head on his paws and wait patiently.
Because he was so attentive, we took him for a small walk around the room on a leash. He walked along us and sat whenever we stopped, looking at us expectantly. Never once did he jump on us.
Barney loves toys and can be persuaded to play fetch, though he would much prefer to sit for treats.
Barney also gets along with other dogs, and would be a great companion to either canine or human.
Here is a video of Barney doing some agility:

New! Updated photos of Barney just chilling out while watching the world go by (with help of treats- he’s very much a chew-on-a-bone-while-at-your-feet kind of dog):
