Barkley was found dumped in Texas after being used as bait in a dog fighting ring. His body was covered in old and new wounds and his future was bleak. That’s until one brave little girl and her family did something no one else would…

“Fostering is more than what it looks like on the surface. Being a foster, I’ve found, has brought me more than just the obvious benefits. Sure I get to love on lots of puppo’s. Sure, I get to help another spirit heal. But what I didn’t quite understand was how much I would grow and learn and heal myself while fostering.”

Barkley came to the Witts after a long stent in the Emergency Vets. He was 30 pounds underweight and recovered from two massive wounds down the sides of his neck. Wounds we have seen in almost every bait dog case. His body is riddled with old and new wounds. Wounds that were never treated. He had made it through several serious infections of the wounds and ultimately lost his hearing. Bust Barkley stayed positive and his foster family stayed by his side. Reminding him he was loved and would never be hurt again.

Application after application fell through because of his special needs but the Witt Family was also there! One day Mrs. Witt was laying down with Barkley with his head in her lap. “I imagined what it felt like to be able to see that he was our dog and I sobbed tears of joy. That’s when I knew.”

Then the Witt’s planned an incredible surprise for their daughter, who had fallin in love with Barkley while fostering. They told her that Barkley found a family and they wanted to do a photo shoot with her. As they took the photos they revealed that the family adopting Barkley was them! And the little girl was forever united with Barkley making their home and hearts full of love.

“He is such a joy in our family. Every soul he meets is a friend and every soul that meets him immediately realizes he feels this way. He’s gentle and kind. Even if his various medical treatments over the months didn’t significantly prolong his life, he still DESERVED to feel love from a family, and Dallas DogRRR gave him that!”
