Facts about Bear (Kevin)

  • Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler Mix
  • Color: Merle
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Kevin was picked up by animal control as a stray. He stood little chance of finding an adoptive home in the shelter, and we were asked to help. When he entered our foster program at the beginning of March it was apparent that he hadnt had a great life up until this point. He was covered in scabs, and had an abscessed tooth. We've had his teeth all cleaned up, had him neutered and had an overall health check. Other than being mostly blind from cataracts (a condition likely due to his age) he is a pretty healthy guy! He does dribble a bit of urine, but its easily managed with a belly band. He is fostering with other dogs, and and a cat, and he does well with both. He would be best matched with another older dog, or one that isnt looking for a wrestling buddy. He is fostering with kids and is great with them. We feel he would do well with calm kids who can respect the boundaries and needs of an older dog. He has a lot of spunk in him, and will make someone a happy companion. We are looking for a home that can offer him a place to relax in his golden years, and see what being loved and cherished is all about.

About Barlee's Angels Rescue Network

About Our Rescue Group...

Please see our website at for full information.

Barlee's Angels Rescue Network (BARN) is a non-profit, all-breed animal rescue based in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. We are a group of volunteers dedicated to helping animals in need. We do this by taking in homeless animals, fostering them in the homes of our foster volunteers, tending to their veterinary needs, and adopting them into carefully screened homes. We work on any behavioral problems while they are in foster care as well as basic house manners, crate- and housetraining.

Barlee's Angels are usually abandoned, unwanted, abused or stray animals. These animals come primarily from shelters. Barlee's strongly supports responsible pet ownership and therefore will try to help people to keep their pets rather than accept the pet as a first option. As with all rescues, space is limited and if we can help some pet owners through the problems that are causing them to feel they must give up their pet, we can use that space for other animals in trouble.

Only if we are able to, BARN will accept an owner surrender into the rescue and rehoming program, but the pet must be vaccinated, altered, accompanied by all of it's possessions (eg bed, toys, blanket) and a surrender fee may be required to offset some of the substantial costs of caring for and rehoming an animal.

BARN provides foster care for our companion animals, evaluates temperament and personality, provides veterinary attention as necessary, spays or neuters and then matches the animal with a home that is suitable for that individual animal. This can often take months and it can be very costly. An adoption fee is charged for the pet and followups are ongoing to monitor the success of the placement. Wildlife are rehabilitated and released when possible.

Our Adoption Process...

Please see our website at for full information.

The adoption process for Barlee's Angels and for most rescues is a thorough process that involves an adoption application, reference checks, and discussion about the potential adoptive home, including a home visit. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time - and we'd like to stress that this is a necessary part of our job. We feel that when we rescue an animal we have a responsibility to ensure that we place it in a home that is equipped and committed to caring for the pet for the rest of its' natural life.

Please understand that filling out an adoption application or complying with any of our approval procedures in no way guarantees the acceptance of an adoption application. We reserve the right to refuse an applicant for any reason, at our discretion. We also reserve the right to investigate for the purpose of verification information given in adoption applications, and not to disclose any such information revealed in such investigations.
