He faces the wall all day and refuses to touch his food. Every time a shelter worker approaches him, he shifts his stiff body to avoid any eye-contact.
Shetland Shepard-Dachshund mix named Barkley was found walking haplessly by a trailer park in Owensboro, Kentucky. He was guided to the Daviess Animal Shelter, where the employee immediately knew he was going to be one strong case. Barkley showed tell-tale signs of depression, and there was no method to engage with any human.
Gradually, Barkley grew and gladly embraced his keepers. While he was not an attention-seeking kind, he began looking to belly rubs and cuddles from human being ! Barkley was rescued by “Secondhand Hounds”, who put him in a lfoster situation. Barkley became a happy and friendly it up in his foster house. Sadly, Barkley crossed the rainbow bridge two years later from a diseased mass on his back and spine which was not operable. But we are happy because Barkley got at least two years filled with love .
