Facts about Huck

  • ID#: Huck
I’m Your Huckleberry! A happy-go-lucky, healthy dog with 3 legs!

What I have learned: I am smart and willing to please. I already knew sit. And not having any accidents in the house or in my crate. I have really been coming in to my own with playing - Call me Huck Norris because I throw around squeaky toys and wrestle with them like a champ. I am learning down. And my foster mom keeps making me sit next to her on the couch but I am just as happy on the floor at her feet. I like to lick faces too.

Other things I like to do for fun:

Sun myself on a kuranda bed in the yard. It is also good to use as a trampoline for my Huck Norris moves.
Rubber squeaky toys & rope balls – They’re so much fun but I have to learn to share when asked to. Chasing my foster sisters – hey, they chase me so all is fair in the chase game.
Eat Treats – I don’t discriminate. I like peanut butter, crunchy ones, chewy ones, hooves, bully sticks. Going for walks & car rides! – Don’t let me being a tripod distract you. Running has been limited as I am recovering from Heartworm treatment til 12/11. I also like squirrel spotting.

Overall Personality: I am a sweet heart, total 100% sweet heart. I will sit and just look at you when you pet me. I am comfortable in new surroundings and parks and like to meet new people! I love exploring the house. There are so many interesting things to sniff and you never know where some treat will be hidden.
I like to play. I can entertain myself but I love for you to watch and be amazed at how I can squeak a toy. Or chase a ball. I love tennis balls (is that a given since I am a lab?). I also like to just chill. I sleep through the night and am quiet when in my crate. After play, I like to sleep by the TV. But if you get up, I may follow you just so I don’t miss a thing.

Basic commands: Good Morning = wake up. Outside. Inside. Sit (especially with treat in hand). Get down. No/Stop. Who’s Hungry (dinner)?

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.
