Lucas, meaning illumination, or luminous. It seems fitting for this precious boy that answers to the name Lucas, but his foster mom calls Sunshine. He is an absolute ray of sunshine that will bring enormous joy to your home. Lucas is a Pit / Pointer mix, approximately 17 week old puppy who had a rough start to life. He suffered an injury to his back legs that we assume was caused by being hit by a car. He has had reparative surgery and has been healing well in his foster home.

Despite his rough beginnings, this dog is amazing! He has been in his foster home for 2 weeks and is already potty trained, crate trained and absolutely adaptable in a home environment. He shares his foster home with a large breed male dog, two adults, and two children ages 10 and 16. He does great will all of them. His foster home also has cats that are separated from the dogs due to disagreements with the larger breed dog. However, Lucas has been exposed repeatedly to their territory, and while he is curious, he has been non-reactive while on a leash supervised.

In the house, he is very happy to sit by you, play with a toy or chew on a bone. He is very self-amused, but if you engage him get ready for a barrage of kisses and tail wags! This is a Happy Boy, who is so grateful to be out of a shelter and into a home with grass, comfy beds and people to love him! YOU want to get to know this Boy while he is still a puppy. Puppy love is the best!

About BarkTown Dog Rescue and Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

BarkTown Dog Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc. is an all-volunteer non-profit organization. We envision a compassionate world where all dogs reside in responsible, loving homes.

Dogs in our care are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment that is needed. The dogs are then placed in nurturing foster homes while they await placement into their permanent home. Our group remains interested in and committed to the welfare of the dogs beyond the adoption process.

Our goal is to help dogs in distress without regard to age, breed, size, or ease of placement. To the extent our finances allow, dogs in the greatest need take priority.

Finally, we strive to work with area shelters and other rescue groups to develop a network of supporters and volunteers to create a better world for homeless dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

The dogs that we have available for adoption have come from shelters where they were found stray or were given up by their owners. These dogs have been let down by humans in the past and may be suffering from physical ailments or abuse. So, by the time these dogs come into our rescue group they have been thru a lot and need a home that can provide them with structure, guidance, love, patience and time to adjust to their new surroundings. Please understand that as dogs transition from shelter to foster home to forever home there can be set backs along the way and they will need your help to adjust.

All dogs that are adopted from BarkTown are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and provided with all necessary veterinary care. However, owning a pet can be expensive and you must be prepared to provide quality food, monthly heartworm medication, monthly flea and tick medication, yearly shots and routine checkups. In addition, you must prepare for accidents and illnesses that may require expensive treatment or surgeries. Many times our dogs have ended up in shelters because their previous owners were not prepared for these expenses and we want to ensure this never happens to them again.

We strive to know and understand each of our dogs so that we can work to find the best match for each dog and adopter.

Our adoption process includes an adoption application, adoption interview, meet and greet, veterinary reference check, personal reference check and home visit prior to making the adoption final. We reserve the right to deny any application that we feel is not a good fit for any of our dogs for any reason. If you are ready to make a commitment to one of our dogs please complete the adoption application and submit for review. The adoption fees vary based on the age of the animal: Age 7 and up is $250, Under age 7 is $275.
