Sweet Barkley was to be euthanized December 24th at 7 a.m. He had bald patches all over his body. Instead, he was brought to my veterinarian husband's office where blood tests determined how to get his beautiful silky coat back. The couple who found Barkley on the streets of New York City described him as a gentle and perfectly-behaved dog. They did not exaggerate! Barkley is a gentle, loving and beautiful dog. He is a 68-pound, 6-8 year old joy to his foster family and to the wonderfully lucky people or person who adopts him. He is wonderful with a houseful of cats and other dogs and is gentle with children and strangers. Cats that don't like dogs love Barkley. Blood tests determined that his hair loss was caused by a treatable pituitary imbalance called 'Cushings Disease', for which he will take medication for the rest of his life.

If Barkley might be meant to belong with you, please call his foster mom, Julia, at 518-249-4588. (Please do not contact Animalkind about this pet.) Julia's canine adoptions require a home visit, vet reference, a $250 adoption fee to help offset the cost of caring for her many fosters, as well as the perfect match between two and four footed.
