From the Foster:
Hi, I'm Barkley! I hear you are looking for a new member of your family. Don't let my age fool you, I still have a lot of spunk for an older gentleman, plus all the added benefits of years of experience! What do I mean by that? Well, I am an excellent snuggler and lap dog. I know how to hunker down and just hang out with you! I also know that I should only potty outside and haven't had a single accident while at my foster's house! I also don't mind my crate, although I am so well behaved I don't need it. My foster mom let's me roam free and sleep on the couch while she is gone. I currently only have 2 teeth, but I still love to eat! It just has to be soft food with a little kibble mixed in. I also LOVE peanut butter! Plus with having only 2 teeth, I can't really chew on anything I'm not suppose to (not that I do!).
My ideal forever family will be with someone who is home more often than not. I really do love to snuggle and need a family that will let me hangout on the couch with them and sleep with them at night. I promise to give you lots of kisses and silly old man grunts if you do! I would do best with older kids who can respect my boundaries. I am currently working on walking on a leash. I don't really like being told I can't walk to a certain place, so I need a forever family who will continue to work with me on that. Or someone who will take me for walks in a doggy stroller :) Because I don't like the leash, I need a securely fenced yard to run around in. I love to hang outside and sunbathe. I do like to bark to alert when I see things outside (like those pesky squirrels!). I hope you're OK with that. My bark is sorta silly anyway :)
So what do you think? Can I come join your family?
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
I f you would like to meet/adopt this animal or anyone else, then please fill out an adoption application at http://secondhandhounds.org/adoption-information/ and the foster(s) will be in touch! Keep in mind that there may be multiple applicants applying for the same animal(s). You only need to complete 1 application for multiple animals that you're interested in.
Note - We change an animal's listing to say "PENDING ADOPTION" when they already had a meet and greet with a family who plans to adopt that animal. We put "NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS" on a listing when an animal has multiple applications in and the foster has asked to stop accepting any more while they review the applications they've already received.
If you would like to be a foster for Secondhand Hounds, then please fill out a foster application, http://secondhandhounds.org/fostervolunteer-information/fostering-101/ You can choose the type of animal you'd like to foster and we will supply everything you need (food, collar, bowls, crate, etc.) while the animal is in your care.
Thanks for your interest in Secondhand Hounds!
