A fenced-in yard is essential if you wish to adopt this dog.
Barley is a spayed female English Pointer mix, born on December 22, 2013. Barley is a sweet and loving girl. She is house trained and well behaved. When on a leash in public, she always asks to go see children and get petted. Her first home was extremely neglectful. She was chained without adequate housing, food or water. Now she is extremely happy to be allowed into the house and grateful for good food and loving attention. She is a big mush! Although she loves to come into the house, she prefers to spend most of her time outside watching the world. She will need a bigger fenced yard to be happy. She loves to go on walks with people. Barley's foster home has 3 cats and she is very good with them. She also is living with 4 dogs and is gentle with big and small. Barley is heart worm negative and up-to-date on her immunizations. The adoption fee is $125. This covers the cost of spay/neuter, DHPP, Rabies, Flea, tick, heart worm check, worm treatment, and microchip. To adopt, you need to first fill out an application.
