Hi! My name is Gus! I am an extremely lovable, down to earth and mellow, 80lb boy. No one quite knows my back story because I was found as a stray, but I wound up at MDAS in March. The staff thought I was roughly 2 years old. I've been living w my foster family since I was sprung from jail and I am so happy to be with them! I have two Cavalier King Charles sisters and a 4 yr human sister. I love them all. My human sister loves to play dress up with me. I don't mind wearing silly hats at all. As long as she's ok w me snuggling in her bed while she's at school.

My foster mom and dad say I'm really great on the leash. I love going for long walks w my sisters in our neighborhood. But not when it's too hot: I'd rather lay in the A/C!

My absolute favorite thing to do is play fetch w a tennis ball. I could play all day and never get tired! Luckily my foster mom plays tennis so there's lots of balls around for me. I like to chew them and other toys too. That's probably my second favorite thing. Everyone who meets me says I'm so mellow and sweet. I'd love an active family who can play and run with me because I have energy. And I hope you'll let me share the bed!

About Barkie's Legacy - Weston

About Our Rescue Group...

Barkie's Legacy is a non-profit 501(c)(3) rescue, dedicated to the rescue of large dogs (the hardest to place) from being put down in the various animal control agencies or found as a stray throughout the southeast.
Creating Barkie's Legacy has been a dream of Jen Bark (yes, the last name is real), a Florida transplant with a passion for saving the lives of man's best friend. Jen rescued her own dog, Jasper, a few years back and from that point on, she was drawn to the cause and strays seem to be drawn to her!
The name Barkie's Legacy, comes from Jen’s wish to honor her mother, Barbara Bark, a wonderful person to whom family meant everything and loved dogs as well. Barbara went by the nickname, Barkie, given to her by her husband, the love of her life.
Barbara passed away in 2008 and creating a dog rescue in her memory was a great way to pay tribute to her.
Barkie's Legacy rescues/rehabilitates dogs, finding temporary homes for them until their forever homes can be found. People say, "You can't save them all" however, Barkie's Legacy refuses to believe in that adage and does everything in their power to give all dogs the chance to find a loving home to call their own.
We are amazed at the amount of dogs that are unwanted, unloved or abused, so we're trying to make a difference one dog at a time!

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Process:
All prospective adopters need to fill out and submit an Adoption Application.
We believe our dogs and puppies deserve the best of homes, so you must have great references and agree to a home visit.
Adoption Application
All of our dogs are spayed/neutered and up-to-date on shots prior to being adopted (unless they are too young, then an agreement is made). Every dog is heartworm tested and treated along with given the proper flea/tick medication.
An adoption fee is charged to help defray veterinarian and other required expenses.
We made a promise to our babies that they will never have to worry again, so adopters will have to sign a contract agreeing to take great care of that animal. If an adoption does not work out for any reason, the animal must be returned to Barkie's Legacy.
