Story
Meet Joy. Don't you just love that face?!? Joy is a 5 year old Pitbull. Joy is very sweet and beautiful girl! She adores people and is eager for affection. She listens very well so she would THRIVE if enrolled in training.  Joy would do well in a home with a more submissive dog and we are unsure about cats, but we can test her.  If you would like to make Joy a part of your family please go to www.barktownrescue.org and fill out an adoption application. Joy's Adoption Fee: $170The shelter software system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at the dog's predominant breed or breed mix. We strongly encourage you to select your new pet by looking at each dog's individual personality and pet qualities rather than relying on a breed label that is only our best guess.    Our adoption fees vary from $150 and up.  All of our dogs are up to date on vaccines, heart worm preventives, and flea/tick medication, and will be spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Portions of your adoption fee also help care for the sick and injured animals that we take in.  Thank you for supporting us and considering a rescue dog!    May 16, 2024, 2:30 pm

Story
We brought Gunner home from the humane society. He is 5 years old. He is a very loving and loyal dog. He loves to play catch. He can be aggressive towards people he doesn’t know. Once he warms up to them, he is fine. He doesn’t like thunderstorms or kennels. He is an inside dog, but probably could be an outside dog if trained to stay in the yard. Gunner is our daughter’s dog. She is now in the military, and we are too busy to give him what he needs. We live in the country, which doesn’t provide any socialization with other people. We don’t want any money. We just want him to go to a good home.

Story
Hello, I'm Darla! I'm a young pitty mix looking for a new family to love. I adore playtime, whether it's with my fellow dogs or with children. I am also accustomed to a crate and am even housetrained! I've spent plenty of time in a foster home, so I'm used to living in a home. I'll gladly show off my tricks, too! Although I can be active, I'm a world class cuddler once the playing's done! I'm spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on my shots. If you're seeking a joyful companion to brighten your life, come visit me.

Story
Meet Sid, the lovable 2-year-old pup looking for his forever home!Sid is a snuggly dude and really just wants a soft place to land and a couch to curl up on. He's an affectionate, attentive companion and doesn't hesitate to touch base with his humans for a few pats and kisses in between play sessions.SId has enjoyed playing with other dogs while at KHS and would love having a doggy sibling in his new home. In fact, he's made GREAT friends with our buddy Gunner - they're thick as thieves. Meet-and-greets are encouraged to ensure everyone will make good roommates, but once Sid's new pals pass their initial vibe check it's game ON! He loves chasey, rompy games and makes all of us laugh with his floppy, puppylike playstyle. We absolutely adore hanging out with this handsome boy and we're pawsitive you will too!

Story
Hello there, I'm Paoli. Life in a shelter isn't bad, but I dream of a home. I'm a grown-up girl who loves the company of humans, especially those aged 8 and above. I'm not much of a cat person, but I'm open to making friends with other canines after a friendly meet and greet. I'm also crate trained, which makes me a well-behaved house guest. I'm just looking for a family who'll appreciate my sweet nature and the love I have to give. Adopting me means gaining a loyal friend who'll always be by your side.
