Meet Bart

Bart is a beautiful shepherd mix and looking for his forever person to bond with and guard and protect! Bart, starving and desperate for food, was trapped at a known site for dog dumping. Which we will NEVER understand. How can you just dump your dog and leave them wondering if you'll ever come back. So cruel.

He was successfully trapped and brought to the shelter and just ran out of time. With his number coming up, he was pulled by an organization that Castaways works with quite a bit to help save dogs from euthanasia. Bart will literally give you a hug! Loves car rides and would make a great adventuing dog. But being part shepherd, he also knows when it is time to rest and just chill out in front of the TV. He is incredibly smart and responds well to training (as long as you give him a treat every once and while!). He would make a great addition to any family.

Adopter requirements for Bart: Shepherds are not known for being good around cats unless you take the time to TRAIN them. Bart also seems to be dog selective, but is not aggressive. He will give a polite warning growl when he has had enough from another dog. He does this with Lil Bubs all the time since he is a puppy.

Vetting: All of our dogs are microchipped and UTD on vaccines: Distemper-Parvo w/Lepto, Bordetella, and Rabies (if age appropriate). They receive monthly flea/heartworm prevention while in our care and receive fecal and heartworm testing. Most of our dogs are de-wormed at least twice unless we receive negative fecal results. They are spayed or neutered or pending a spay or neuter (unless age or a health condition precludes this).

Adoption Application: If you are interested in adopting, please visit our website for more information and to fill out an adoption application. A meet and greet cannot be scheduled until we receive and adoption application. No exceptions.

Foster-to-Adopt Program: All of our dogs are available to foster prior to adoption. This means the dog can stay are you now instead of waiting! During this time, Castaways will continue to provide remaining medical vetting and any supplies you might need! This includes but is not limited to: food, crates, bowls, collars/leashes, toys, etc. View our forms and policies page for more information.

Unsure about making a commitment just yet? Please consider fostering until you find the right pupper for you, especially if you are a first-time dog owner. With fostering, instead of saving one dog, you can help save 10 dogs!
