Hi everyone my name is Robert Barkley and I’m around three years old. When I came into the GR program, I was pretty dirty and very itchy all over. My wonderful foster family took me to the doc right away and got me medication which is helping already. They also needed to change my food so everyone is hopeful that the itching/allergy cycle will soon be behind me. I’m already starting to feel better. They are also teaching me all my commands and I’m getting the hang of it all. The leash thing is still a challenge for me so if I’m lucky enough to join your family, you would have to be a little patient with me until I get the leash and other commands down pat. I’m told I’m smart so it probably won’t be too long before I get to know all your human ways. I am not a big barker. You can touch me anywhere. I can be left alone if you have to go out without me and loud noises don’t bother me. I love people and other dogs and I am a pretty quiet, laid-back boy but I also have good energy. So, if you are energetic sometimes and a couch potato the rest of the time, I might just be a perfect fit.

Robert Barkley is currently being fostered in the Vancouver, BC area.  If you would like more information about Robert Barkley please call our hot-line toll free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
