Barley hopes a family will overlook his heartworms and bring him home

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Meet Barley. He's a 3-year-old Daschund mix who loves to wag his tail and lay in your lap.

Barley is sweet as can be and hopes his winning personality will attract a loving family.

"He's very laid back. He's very quiet," said Jaime Shelton, Director at Nacogdoches Animal Shelter. "He doesn't meet a stranger, although he's a little bit timid. He loves everybody. He has been passed over several times because he does have heartworms and it's a shame because he is such a nice dog. He's a really good dog."

Barley is heartworm positive but that doesn't mean he's not a good healthy dog. He will require a little bit of extra care and some heartworm medication but half of that is already sponsored by the Nacogdoches Animal Shelter.

"He will require a little bit of extra attention and the animal shelter is willing to sponsor half of his heart worm treatment so that will be an incentive and that's quite a chunk of change," said Shelton.

The shelter is also sponsoring his sterilization surgery.

Barley loves to cuddle, look out the window and explore.

For more information on how to adopt our furry friend, Barley. Call the Nacogdoches Animal Shelter at 936-560-5011

    More than a few tar-covered tires are hanging on to the parking lot of a Lufkin tire shop.  On August 31, newly laid asphalt on Loop 287 started sticking to tires of those driving, leaving many of the cars un-driveable. As of Friday, the Texas Department of Transportation hadn't come out with an official cause for the incident, but that hasn't stopped over 600 people from filing claims with them.
