BARKLEY is a sweet, easy-going dog who thoroughly enjoys the companionship of humans of all sizes. He especially enjoys snuggles and interaction with toys. He appreciates leisurely walks and is doing very well on the leash - he does, however, become enthusiastic when he spots a cat so needs an adult handler.
 
When we met Barkley, he had been abandoned and was in need of medical care. He looks and feels so much better now and is so grateful for anything that is done for him. He waits patiently while you clean his ears or clip his toenails...he's such a handsome gentleman! He would do great as a shop or office dog.
 
Barkley will do well as an only dog as he would need very careful or will require very careful matching and introductions with any potential dog companions. 
 
If you believe you're a possible match for Barkley, PLEASE complete an adoption application!
 
We encourage you to register on our site and "Favorite" the dog(s) that interest you, so that you will be notified when bio or photos are updated.

**IMPORTANT** 

  • "Companion animal" means, needs at least one other friendly, playful dog that lives in the same household.
  • "Fenced yard" means, a backyard that is adjacent to and connected with your residence. (It does not mean a nearby fenced area/dog park.)
  • Gates must have padlocks and thresholds (cement or buried pavers to prevent digging.)
  • Yard and patio must be free of debris and have room for dogs to run and play on a lawn and/or a very shaded area.
  • We do not place dogs in situations where there are "drained" or empty swimming pools, which are a fall hazard and contribute to the propogation of mosquitos.
  • We DO NOT adopt to students as we have found that they often do not know or anticipate where life is taking them next.

Dogs remain posted while we screen potential adopters. As long as dog is designated "Available" we continue to accept applications.

We are staffed by all volunteers and use an application protocol to handle all inquiries about adoptable dogs. This system enables an efficiency that allows us to save and care for more dogs. Discussion about a dog - including scheduling of a home check or other dialogue - cannot occur until we have received your completed adoption applicationNO EXCEPTIONS. Thank you!
