Barlow Crawled to A Doorstep for Help



Barlow appeared on a neighbor’s doorstep in a small town in Alabama November 15, 2007, clearly begging for help. Underweight and submissive, he had multiple open wounds on his face and legs and a large lump under his jaw. It looked like he’d been used for bait in a dogfight.

Macon County Humane Society volunteer, Sue-Ellen Brown, immediately brought the 10 month old mix to her veterinarian where he was tested, examined, de-wormed and given initial vaccinations. His wounds were cleaned and dressed and he was sent home with Sue-Ellen with instructions for his continued daily care. There were also signs that he may have had an early bout of distemper.

A few weeks later, Barlow was neutered and his wounds stitched closed. He was transferred to a second foster home, a veterinarian, so she could continue the work of helping Barlow’s wounds heal as best as possible.

The composite photograph above was taken shortly after Barlow had arrived on a doorstep begging for help.

In both foster homes, Barlow was excellent with other dogs, loved sleeping on the couch and in his crate and playing with toys. It appears that Barlow may be a slow learner as evidenced by some of his behaviors, but his personality endeared him to his foster homes and all who met him. Despite their efforts at finding Barlow a home, no one responded. They called Popcorn Park.

Barlow arrived at the end of January, and here he waits – brought back from a life of terrible suffering and pain, only wanting to be someone’s sweetheart and couch potato. If you could give Barlow a lifetime of love, please contact us.
