Barker- IS ON A HOME TRIAL!!!!!

This year will be Barker’s third Christmas with us !

Many people may recognise and love Barker Brown as he has been with us for a very long time. Recently he has been having trouble with his legs and has had an operation on his cruciate ligaments. We are appealing for anyone who thinks they could give him a nice warm and quiet home for him to live in his old and lazy days.

Barker is around nine years old and loves attention and snuggles. He’s looking for a foster home with no other dogs as he can sometimes be grumpy. He still enjoys his walks but can’t go too far and despite having bad arthritis, he can still be strong when he wants something! a high fence around the garden is also required as he can still jump.

Mr Brown is an absolute favourite of all the staff and volunteers and we would all love to see him in his own home, as we all feel the kennel environment isn’t doing his old legs any favours.

If you feel you and our Golden Oldie might be perfectly matched, then please contact us on 07931220094 for further information. Thank you.

    Is Barker still available?

    We have an older dog already that is not particularly interested in playing and sleeps all day apart from when food is a possibility. We also have two cats.

    Could we be a possibility for a foster or long term home for him?

    • Wolfwood

      Hello, thankyou for your enquiry however barker wouldn’t be suitable living with cats sorry.

    Hi do you think he would be OK for an older active lady, my friends mum has had staffies for a number of years and is looking for an older one as a companion since she lost her husband a few years ago. Also do you think he would be OK with a cavalier King Charles spaniel that visits from time to time

    • Wolfwood

      Hello sarah, although he is older he still has lots of strength that he does use to get to scents ect.
      We think barker wouldn’t enjoy having another dog in his home although he walks well with the dogs here he doesn’t like them in his space.

  • Jane Binnion

    Would he be OK with a cat?

  • Kelly Cottam
