Newfoundland Dog
Labrador Retriever, Mix

An adotable dog in New York, NY

  • Adult
  • Large
  • Male

Sweet Barkley was to be killed December 24th at 7 a.m. He had bald patches all over his body. Instead he was brought to my veterinarian husband's office where blood tests determined how to get his beautiful silky coat back. The couple who found Barkley on the streets of New York City described him as a gentle and perfectly behaved dog. They did not exaggerate! Barkley is a gentle, loving and beautiful dog. He is a 68 pound, 6-8 year old, joy to his foster family and to the wonderfully lucky people or person who adopts him. He is wonderful with a houseful of cats and other dogs. Barkley is gentle with children and strangers. Cats that don't like dogs love Barkley. Blood tests determined that his hair loss was caused by a treatable pituitary imbalance called Cushings Disease for which he will take medication for the rest of his life. Barkley's most recent video was taken in Mid May: http://youtu.be/43KDZwCxh2Q This one was shot the last week of February, after his first bath: http://youtu.be/43KDZwCxh2Q This one was taken the following day: http://youtu.be/7qJ1GAO1nE0 Here he is in need of a good brushing in April:http://youtu.be/-E_v64lDU3I And with his foster friend Serena the day she was adopted: http://youtu.be/42rIKxUu8xY If Barkley might be meant to belong with you, please call his foster mom, Julia, at 646-429-8882, or contact Marilyn at nypeticare.com.
