Meet Barney!

Breed:
Whippet
Age:
3
Location:
Essex, East of England
Bio:

Introducing Barney the Whippet dog model and animal actor. Barney is a happy-go-lucky lad with a vast list of tricks. The Whippet breed is of course known for producing hunting and racing dogs, so it’s no surprise that Barney is such a skilled boy with fantastic natural agility and speed. Best of all, this medium-sized dog model is great with other animals, making him the perfect bit of animal talent to star in a multi-species pet photography shoot.

Barney boasts all of the physical traits that have made the Whippet breed so universally popular. He is gentle, calm, social and confident. His black colouring is also quite unique and looks very striking when set against a bright or colourful backdrop.

For all of these reasons, it’s very easy to recommend Barney as a sensational dog model. He’s a beautiful boy, ready to star in only the most stylish pet photography shoots. We would particularly recommend him for work in the fashion, lifestyle, and pet care industries.
