Derrick’s Pet of the week

Good news! I’ve been adopted and am on my way to a loving new home. I’ve left behind plenty of four-legged friends who need homes too. Click here to enter a new site that will display all the adoptable pets at the Humane Society of Missouri.

Hi, my name is Barkley and my ID number is A414755!

I am a 1-and-1/2-year-old tan and white German Shepherd mix who is a sweet and active dog. I am housetrained and I’m easy to walk by leash. The dog walkers have been using a Gentle Leader on me when we go for walks and it make the walks much easier and pleasurable for everyone. I have become a dog walker favorite because I have been here since July! I have had a lot of fun here and so many people have taught me great tricks like sit, stay, paw and down as well as unusual stuff like spin and get/give. I love to play fetch and chase tennis balls. I’d be best living in a home with teenagers because I could be too excited around small children. I’m looking for a home where I’d have room to play and run with a nice owner who will continue training me. As an incentive to keep training me, my new owners will receive a special training package through the classes offered at the Humane Society! Come meet me and make my dream of a forever home become a reality.
