A Welcome Home is the ninth episode from Season 3 of Barney & Friends.


Julie, Jason, and Carlos are playing on the playground until Barney comes to life and the group runs into Shawn. He tells them he's building a surprise for the Treehouse. Min arrives soon after Shawn leaves, with one of the puppies that her dog Princess had. She can't take care of him, as she already has a parakeet, a dog, and a cat; so she's looking for someone to adopt him. Julie explains adoption to the other kids, as she was adopted herself. None of the kids seem to be able to adopt the puppy, since Carlos can't have one until his birthday, Jason already has a dog, and Julie would have to ask her mom about adopting a puppy and was thinking about getting a cat. The kids decide to make posters to show that Min's puppy needs a home, but they lose him soon after they're done. They find him and they go up to the treehouse to see Shawn's surprise, which is revealed to be a "bird village." Barney and the kids decide to build the puppy a doghouse after seeing the village. Min goes down to stay with the puppy, while Barney and the others begin to build the doghouse. Julie comes down to see Min, who feels bad that she can't keep the puppy. While Min goes up to see the doghouse, Julie comforts the puppy and sings to him that he'll have "someone to love him forever." Barney and the other kids bring the doghouse down to the classroom. Julie decides that she wants to adopt the puppy, if her mom says it's OK, so he can really have a home.
