Barkerville, as seen in 1985

Barkerville is a Shetland Sheepdog with brown fur and short ears.  He also has freckles on his muzzle. He usually wears a top hat, a monocle, a red bow tie, and white cuffs on his wrists. He sometimes carries a cane.


Barkerville is snobby and loves fancy things. Despite that, Barkerville acts like a gentlemen toward women, especially Violet. When Cooler was hit by the dognappers van, Barkerville was devastated, meaning that he shows remorse toward his friends and doesn't want to lose a friend. He is called "Barky" for short by his friends while he parents call him "Bartholomew". He speaks in a British accent. He is completely oblivious to Tricolor's love and Tony the Artist's extreme jealousy towards him. Despite his gentlemanly behavior, he is not interested in romance. When Tricolor professes her love for him, he gently and politely turns her down. Whenever there is a slow day, Barkerville would pass the time by reading  books.


Barkerville can play the cello.
