Barkley's Story...
Meet Barkley – My name is Barkley and I became homeless after my owner brought me to a boarding facility in Houston’s East End and simply never came back. I was tiny, only a few months old, and very scared and lonely.
It was a relief when Barrio Dogs took me in. I am now fully vetted, neutered, heartworm free, micro chipped, and ready for my forever home.
The vet says I am about nine months old and won’t get very big, 20 pounds at the most. I have a silky soft white coat with tan ears and a few tan spots. I love being held and snuggling with my human friends but I also like running around, playing with toys, and just being a puppy. I am eager to make friends with the big dogs, but because I’m the little guy, I must play on my own, separated from the rest.
They tell me I have friendly “twinkling eyes” and a great attitude. Just the other day, I walked on a leash for the first time and did quite well. I am learning to listen and will “come” and “sit” on command, which is quite good for a puppy and apparently means I am smart. I am also comfortable in a crate (Lord knows I spend enough time in one) and enjoy car rides.
Thank you for reading my biography. I still live in boarding but dream of going to a real home with someone who loves and cares about me. If you’d like to know more about me, please contact

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barkley, a Houston Springer Spaniel puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Springer Spaniel for sale in Houston, or seeking a Springer Spaniel puppy from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Houston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Springer Spaniel breeders who help with Springer Spaniel rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
