Barkley, a red Bloodhound mix, deserves a second chance.
Barkley is gentle and affectionate red Bloodhound mix who loves everyone he meets! He enjoys the company of other dogs like himself who are calm and relaxed. He appears to be house- and crate-trained and enjoys riding in the car. He takes treats softly and is happiest when being shown affection. He enjoys taking slow walks with our volunteers while sniffing to his heart’s content.
This gentleman hasn't had much luck in his 8 years. He was found as a stray without any identification and brought to Animal Friends by the Dog Warden. Upon his arrival, we found that Barkley is visually impaired and truly deserves to find a safe and caring home to call his own.
A fenced yard is recommended for Barkley. Due to his impairment, it is important to keep him contained and safe while allowing him the enjoyment of spending time outdoors. He would also prefer to go to a home with carpeted stairs, as he is prone to slipping.
Barkley hopes to find a special family who will show him love and compassion and with whom he can share his golden years. If you think you have room in your heart and home for our sweet Barkley, stop by soon.
Barkley is neutered, microchipped and current on vaccines! Right now, Animal Friends is celebrating November, National Adopt a Senior Pet Month, with priceless pet adoptions for seniors and senior-itas!
