Nona2Hi, I’m 1 ½ year old Nona. I may be a tiny bit shy at first, but once you meet and spend just a little time with me, I will give you kisses, sit next to you for cuddles and hugs, and eventually roll over for my favorite belly rubs 🙂 I am gentle and calm – I recently attended 2 BARCS adoption events in the community, and did really well giving careful kisses to the children who stopped to meet me. I walk well on the leash, enjoy doing zoomies in the play yard, and love to go for runs. I’d make  the PERFECT jogging partner – check out my video online! If you are looking for an affectionate and calm dog who enjoys being active come down to BARCS today and meet me!


Hi, I’m 3 year old Zoolander! I’m an absolute favorite here at BARCS. I’m friendly, playful, and extraordinarily affectionate – I even love to give hugs if you  let me! I’m a goofy boy, and such a ham, but I’m cooperative and attentive to my handler. I’m very smart, and the folks here have been working with me on basic skills and obedience. I was assessed off leash with both a male and a female dog and I did splendidly! I was tolerant, friendly, and playful. Please come to BARCS to meet me today!


 Hi, I’m 5 year old Tink! I’m a sweet, happy, affectionate girl that just loves attention. I adore pets and snuggles. I’m such a good girl that the volunteers took me to the Ravens tailgate parties to meet all the people. I was in my glory with the fans swooning all over me! All the noise, including a marching band, did not phase me at all. I am playful and energetic with my doggie friends here. If you’re looking for an affectionate, playful, and adorable best friend, please come to BARCS to  meet me!
