    Jenna never barked either...i played sound clips of barking dogs to see if that would get her to bark....found one she did bark...now i know why she doesn't a 50 pound bulldog...sounds like a poodle...think she's embarrassed...she just doesn't bark very often...and it's usually to try to get someone to give her a snack...i'm her protector she's not mine...that's fine...she's a rescue still has some fears and still a little head shy..getting better..but even over a year of no one laying a unloving hand on her she will still flinch every now & then..i think she just wasn't permitted to bark

    When we first got ruthie she never barked and she was a rescue. We just assumed she would be quiet. So we gave up even trying to get her to bark. Then one day...we heard it. And it was the most adorable, gruff bark we had ever heard. And now....we sometimes can't get her to shut up, once we tell her to shut up, she always has to have the last word and let out a growly bark. Give it time, she'll surprise you one day!

    Aww I love all these lil stories. We had Daisy maybe a week before she barked. She just wanted to play. She rarely barks though. BUT, if I get the blow dryer out or use the mixer she will bark at those... It always catches me off gaurd. lol

    Sheldon very seldom ever barks unless something startles him or he wants on the bed and he forgets he can use the step stool we put at the end of the bed for him to use or playing with one of the other animals other than that not a peep out of him.

    Give it time. Little Amy took a year and a half to bark. She also has that poodle voice. On the other hand Liz barks more often. I keep trying to tell her that moron German Shepherd barks at everything. Hers is a full-bodied big dog bark. Grrrrr...

    Our Frenchie only barks when playing... he took him a few weeks to do so too. Hopefully, she will open up soon and you'll hear her singing

    sarah does not bark hardly at all really. only when she thinks something is outside. she may never bark and then you may just be sitting there and one day she will make a sound. it was a very long time we had sarah before i heard her bark. i was like she dont bark and was like very very surprised. i have only heard her bark like maybe 10 times in 5 years.

    It may take a long time for her to make a sound. Or maybe she has just perfected the "look" to get her own way!!!! Maggie was very good at that!!!!
    I have thought about this aspect. I don't know her complete history. We got a glimpse of it last night when we were talking with her between us and my husband gently lifted his foot to rub her back. She flinched and ran. It broke his heart. She may have been punished for barking. I got her riled up on Saturday by barking at her. I thought, "this is it!" All i got for all that work was a sore throat.
