Hi! My Name Is Barley

I'm Available | Special Needs: Medical Condition

Our sweet old man Barley came to us after he was found terribly ill and emaciated, tied to a pole and abandoned. He was taken straight to the emergency vet where he spent 5 days trying to pass multiple foreign objects that he had consumed while scavenging trying to survive. During those 5 days, Barley passed pieces of plastic, rubber, baggies, rope, a bottle cap, a wire, and even a condom. He had terrible diarrhea that took 2 months to finally get under control. Barley also had several masses and an enlarged prostate that needed addressed but we couldn’t do anything about that until he gained weight. Once he finally reached a good weight Barley was neutered and the masses were removed. They were sent away for biopsy. We are still waiting for the results. We are expecting that they may come back as cancer though. Currently we would like to find Barley a hospice home. He is a very sweet dog. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm/lymes negative, flea treated, wormed, and microchipped. He is housebroken and crate trained (he hates being in his crate against his will though). He gets along with most dogs, but can be food aggressive (we just feed separately). Farley is super sweet, he has an occasional playful streak in him, but it’s mostly a cuddler. He loves people and just wants to be with them. He would love to have a home to live out his golden years or whatever time he has left. If you think you could give him that home, please complete an adoption application.
