About Van Gogh

Van Gogh is a proud, loyal, charming Survivor, and once he identified all of us at The REAL Bark as his temporary family - we earned a friend for life. He is a 5 year old BEAUTY - handsome as ever and is ready to show you what an incredible pup he will be in his new home. Sadly, Van came from an abusive home. A 'family ' had him for over five years and then dumped him in the shelter when they had to move. He is missing one ear - hence his name - and we do not know if it was cut off by them, or what preceeded his arrival to our rescue. Some dogs are non-discriminate in so far as running up to everyone, and jumping all over them. Because Van was not socialized, growing up, he watches to make certain folks are friendly, and then reveal himself, step by step. He does well with structure and good leadership. He is enthusiastically fond of many of his familiar handlers and friends. Van LOVES his walks and hikes. While he has dog friends that he has come to know through our rescue, we think it is best that he be in an only dog home with a stronger compassionate leader, as he does best when he loyally take on direction of his human friend. Van's ideal person//people are active, smart, and compassionate humans, that are less interested in a dog park dog, as they are a Companion for their walks, and treks. If you think you are the right fit for this wonderful boy, send us an email and we will set up the meeting pronto.

THIS IS A GUEST POST: Please contact staciwitt@sbcglobal.net directly if interested in meeting this adoptable pup. Magic is a super sweet boy who is super friendly with people, and is very gentle with all humans. He would be great with older children 13+. If he were in a room with 15 people, he would be the life of the party, showering everyone with his smile, affection and kisses!!! He loves nothing more than to be next to his favorite humans' side and also understands when to give them space. Some of his favorite things to pass the time include eating, getting pets and massages, sunbathing, and grooving to reggae music. He's a quiet soul, rarely barks and does not have any destructive tendencies. He has medium to low energy with a very chill personality, so wouldn't mind a couch potato friend, but also can enjoy his regular walks. His past spinal injury has not kept him from any activity, but because he is a mellow fellow, couching the potato is not a bad pasttime for him. Magic would do very well in either a home with a yard or a condo or an apartment, and someone who can keep him on a regular feeding and walking schedule. He also would be best as the only dog in the home - no cats. Routine activity is beneficial to keeping him on a regular regimen post-spinal injury. And minimal activity is fine for this big boy. He would be a fantastic loving constant companion for anyone!!! If interested in learning more or meeting this fine boy, please contact: staciwitt@sbcglobal.net. show less
