From Barksdale’s owner:

It is with a heavy heart that I have to put my three-year-old Australian Shepherd mix dog up for adoption. He is a great, loving, energetic guy. However, I have to move to Washington DC for my job. There is no way that he would do well in the city. I’m afraid it would be terribly unfair and selfish of us to move him up north with us.

His name is Barksdale and he is up-to-date on shots, current on heartworm prevention, neutered, microchip, housebroken and he knows basic training commands. He’s leash trained and very, very smart. He is also great with my young daughter (18 months old), our nephew (7 years old) and our older dog (15 years old). He’s also good with larger and smaller dogs.

He is the perfect, active family dog.

They recently lost their Border Collie, Dakota, and thought fostering would be a good way to honor her memory. They weren’t sure if they were ready for another dog yet, but Barksdale, now Charlie, won them over quickly. Such a happy story. Congrats!
