Facts about Caleb

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: Caleb
Caleb is a young male Pit Bull Type Dog - probably mixed with some other unknown breed(s). He is smallish and slender for a Pit Bull Type Dog, weighing in at only about 50 pounds. Caleb LOVES his people, other dogs, anyone - once he gets to know them. At first, however, Caleb can be a bit shy. He came from an unfortunate outdoor breeding operation in far NW Georgia, so Caleb did not have an easy start to life. However, with a lot of TLC in his foster home, Caleb has gained a good deal of confidence since the day he was rescued over a year ago, Caleb has not been cat-tested, but his easy-going and loving nature suggests he could live with the right kitty after learning about him or her. Also, Caleb needs to be in a home with NO CHILDREN.

Caleb is an active young guy, who loves to run in his fenced-in backyard. So, Caleb would do best with an individual or family with a moderate to high active lifestyle. Caleb is crate-trained and is housebroken. He also walks well on lead, although new or chaotic environments can scare him. But, Caleb has a heart of gold and wants nothing more than to be loved and to please his people. Caleb needs a bit more basic obedience training, so is looking for a guardian who is willing to invest a little bit of time and energy in him. The person who adopts Caleb and does this will be rewarded immensely with a loving, loyal Boy. Contact us to meet Caleb for yourself!

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.
