Gerad, Goose and Luis Looking for their Forever Home at BARCS!

| March 15, 2016 | 0 Comments


Oh hello, my name is Gerad! I’m a silly, playful 2 year old boy. My favorite thing to do is run and play in the yard with the ball on a rope. I’d prefer an active family that likes the outdoors and wants to have fun. I also enjoy playing with the other pups here. I’m very alert and curious so I should learn quickly. Everyone compliments me on my handsome physique and lovely red coat. I’m very smart – I already know “sit” and I can’t wait to learn more! Please come down to BARCS to meet me today!


Hi, I’m 6 year old Goose. I’m a sweet and curious pup who is so motivated to learn. I’m a medium energy girl who would be great as an adventure buddy, but I’d love just as much to sprawl out on the couch and get some nice belly rubs. I absolutely love attention and will show my pearly white smile and make silly grunts when I greet you. I just want to please my humans. I already know “sit” and I’m learning how to take treats gently. I love to be outside and settle down quickly on walks for my loose leash training. My favorite time of day is bedtime, when I can snuggle up with my human. Please come to BARCS to meet me today!


Hi, I’m 1 year old Luis! I’m a friendly boy that loves everyone I meet! I love to be pet and I’m very affectionate – I’ll even give you kisses if you let me. I’m a playful guy that knows how to have a good time. I really have a blast romping around with the other pups in the yard. I’ve also been told that I’m adorable. I’m learning lots of things here – like how to walk politely on a leash and “sit.” I’d love for you to take me home and teach me more, so please come down to BARCS to meet me today!
