Barkley-ADOPTED!

Looking for an 80 pound lap dog? Then Barkley wants to meet you!! This handsome 5-6 year-old Lab/Great Pyrenees mix is one big snuggle buddy. He came to Canine Lifeline from a rural county dog shelter after having lost his home due to his owner’s ill health. Barkley appears to have been very well cared for in his previous home and is eager to find another family to love. He knows a number of commands including sit and shake hands. For a big guy, Barkley has nice leash manners. He can also catch treats on the fly like a pro. Barkley has done well with crate-training in his foster and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. He gets along well with most dogs he meets although, at this point, may do better with females than other males. He was recently neutered so his issues with other males will likely subside over time. It’s fun to watch this guy get down into a play bow to try to engage a small dog in play with him. Being part Great Pyr, Barkley does like to hug his human friends. He jumps up very gently but has been working on keeping all four paws on the ground in his foster home. As you can see in his pics, Barkley isn’t shy about crawling into someone’s lap so is sure to keep his new family warm on these cold winter days. He’s a fabulous dog if you’ve got the space for big guy. Barkley weighs about 80 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
