Hi, my name is John!  I’m a 4 year old love bug, and I’m just about the cutest guy you’ve ever seen!  I’m an all-around happy boy that gives amazing kisses and loves to snuggle. I’m really good on the leash and very affectionate – everyone loves to take me for a walk. I’m also great with my doggie friends in play group. Please come to BARCS to meet me today!




Hi, I’m Simba!  I’m a volunteer and staff favorite here at BARCS. I’m 4 ½ years old, I’m very sweet and gentle, and I love attention from people. I know “sit,” and I love cuddles, scratches, and kisses! I’m excellent walking on the leash, and have a very mellow personality. I’m calm and gentle when taking treats, and I wag, wag, wag my little nubby tail! I’m very dog friendly and tolerant with other dogs, even when they act silly. I’m waiting for a loving forever home – please come to BARCS and meet me today!




Hi, my name is Rupert, and I’m a sweet 5 year old boy.  I’m very well mannered, and the volunteers love to take me out because I walk well on a leash.  I take treats gently & just want to kiss & cuddle – they call me a love bug! I even gently licked a baby’s face when I met a family here at the shelter.  I enjoy the company of other dogs.  I love everyone I meet and the feeling is always mutual – please come to BARCS to meet me today!
