Barkley 131

barkley131bBarkley [Adopted May 23, 2012] is a 7 year old, red and white male cocker. He was surrendered by his previous owner due to her own health issues.  He was dearly loved and well cared for until he came to the rescue.  He's a larger cocker, running around 40 pounds.  As you can see from his picture, he's not obese (he could stand to lose a few pounds, but then again who couldn't?).  Barkley is housebroken and crate trained, although he's only in the crate to sleep at night and when we are gone for longer periods of time.  He barks or goes to the door to the back yard when he needs to go outside.  He has bonded with his foster dad and follows him around the house and wants to be where ever he goes. .

Barkley is extremely friendly and active and like being outside and going on walks.  He pulls a bit on the leash but settles down after a short while.  He doesn't play much with toys but likes to be with his people.  He does not chew on things, but does pick up our shoes and drops them in the kitchen.  He does not jump up or bark at guests that come into our home.  This great guy will be a wonderful companion.
