Barkley ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

My name is Barkley and I'm in need of a home. Somehow, I lost the one I had. A nice worker at the shelter called Silky Rescue to come and get me, so I am in safe hands, but I long for my very own forever home with my very own forever people. I'm really hoping that my new family will let me sleep on the bed! barkley
barkley Everyone I meet tells me that I have a very fine temperament. This means that I play and get along just fine with other dogs, I like kids and I have nice house manners. I love riding in the car and I come when I am called. I am quiet and lovable. My foster mom calls me "the Ideal Silky". She thinks I may be a good agility dog, because I have confidence in myself and I want to please.
Barkley is about 6 years old. He is a little guy, weighing about 9 pounds. His health had been very neglected, so he lost several teeth to a bad mouth infection and had a skin infection, too. After some medical attention, he doesn't even have bad breath! He may need thyroid medication, which costs very little. He is neutered, up to date on his shots and has a microchip.barkley
barkley We are looking for a home where Barkley can be the center of attention, but a loving home with one other dog or one calm child would be great. We're not sure how he feels about cats!

He is in a foster home in southern California at this time. Preference will be given to local applicants. Barkley's new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for him, and there will be an adoption fee or donation.
