Barkley — Shelter
Barkley is a 7 yr.old American shelter dog. I believe that one of his parents was a beagle, other parent is unknown. My husband and I foster dogs for a rescue. Barkley has prevented my fosters from getting bitten by a copperhead at least 15x while either calling attention and keeping guard over the snake or taking a strike himself. On 1 occasion he was stricken 2x while fending off the snake from striking my pup/dog fosters. He has been an excellent guard dog watching over my foster dogs as well an excellent family companion. Because that fella is always on the job watching over my family I feel that he is a HERO.
