Important Note

Rock is best friends with Pepper. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Rock is a sweet Husky / Chow mix Boy. He is loving but can be a little shy with new people, especially some men. Rock weighs about 65 pounds, and is housebroken and crate-trained. Rock has an old injury that he takes glucosamine for - he was found as a stray on the streets with his friend Pepper. Rock and Pepper are both fostered in the same home and ideally would be adopted together, although that is not a requirement.

Rock pulls some on lead, so he needs some training in that regard. He has a high prey drive, so Rock needs a Forever Home with no cats or other small animals. He is a lover who likes nothing more than giving kisses to his people. He currently lives with no children in his foster home, but is good with neighborhood kids he meets on walks. He is afraid of storms and fireworks, but is playful and loves a tennis ball as a toy. Rock is low to medium energy and likes to play chase. Rock sits nicely while getting treats, but needs to be fed separately from other dogs in the home. Rock is not usually crated, but could be crated up to 8 hours a day of need be.

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.
