Shelter Spotlight: Barley Needs A Hero

Barley is a gorgeous boy who is looking for love. He was picked up as a stray by a Good Samaritan in February of 2015 and no one has come to take him home.

Barley has been in the shelter for over 2 years. Sadly he is known as the “invisible boy in the shelter”. He is another of the forgotten dogs that I mentioned in my September 20th post:

Barley is a favorite with the volunteers, but sadly no one that comes to the shelter ever asks about him. He has no interest 😓 He cries himself to sleep every night in his kennel. Just hearing about this breaks my heart into a million pieces. ALL HE WANTS IS TO BE LOVED! Will you be his hero??

Barley is the complete package! He loves attention, playing with toys, spending time outside with people running, playing, hiking. He also makes a great cuddle buddy and can sit on the couch snuggled up to you while you watch a movie or read a book. Barley does however need to be your one and only, in an adult home with no children and no other pets.

Barley is being treated for Anaplasmosis, a tick-born disease, he is well on his way to recovery and will be better in no time. He is 60 pounds, 5-7 years young, up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.

I ask that you please share this post, and head over to Barleys Facebook page and like and share it too! We need to help him get noticed!

Let’s show him that his life matters, that he’s not invisible!! Help me help Barley get out of the shelter so he can really begin to live the life he deserves.
