Heath Barkley

Fostering in Harlingin

Hello! My name is Heath and I am a spunky attention loving ,6 yr old, 18lb, handsome guy. I was found on the streets in the fall of 2016 so there’s not much history on me. I am currently living in a home with two other iggies that I love to play and cuddle with. During play time I gets a little protective of my toys and always wants to be in the middle of the fun. I do not like for other dogs to squeak toys, but I loves to play with them myself. I love to play fetch with the small tennis balls (normal ones are too big,) and will chase it and bring it back to you ready to run some more. I love attention, what you might call a “Velcro dog” I always want to be petted and will rub against you to show you that I love you. I always wants to be in the same room as you, wherever you go, I will there. I also love to cuddle on the couch with my humans. When I arrived at my foster home I was not potty trained, and had a marking problem. If kept on a schedule, I am now doing much better. I haven’t quite figured out yet how to let my humans know I need to go outside but my foster Mom is teaching me. I am crate trained and will go into the crate when directed especially when lured with a tasty treat.

I can sleep on the bed with you and will usually stay in the same spot on all night, but I can also  sleep alone in my own bed (most nights I sleep in my bed next to my human). I don’t like to be left alone in a room without you if you are home, I will cry. I’m not very fond of baths, but I’m ok with teeth brushing, ear cleaning and nail clipping. I love to eat! I will eat just about anything you put in front of me, dry dog food, veggies, and fruits. I loves treats and  to chew on an occasional raw hide bone.

I’m looking for my forever home….are you looking for me?
