Barkley [ADOPTED AUGUST 17] is a 4-5 year old, red/white male who is neutered, heartworm tested and up to date on shots. He came to us from a shelter in Joliet, Illinois. He is a very pretty, has an outstanding temperament and is great for grooming. He has a beautiful soft coat of very nice texture, no frizzies. He has a mellow personality and likes to be where you are. He appears to be housetrained (no accident so far). He is presently recovering from an upper respiratory infection that he came with from the shelter. He is kind of a lovable stuffed toy type of dog. He isn't big on dog food but judging from his weight, is rather big on table scraps. We would like to place him with a family who will keep him on a healthy diet. Barkley is not a runner and will stay with you outside. He is good with other dogs, and we feel he is probably also good with children as he has shown no possessive behavior with treasures.
