Barley came to the Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service shelter Oct. 14. He’s an adult male large mix around a year-and- half old who knows sit and loves the play yard. Shelter workers say he’s energetic, and would thrive with an active family. They also say he’s loving, affectionate and eager to please. Leashed introductions to other dogs are appropriate – he rushes to meet them – and a home without cats is best.
