Hi everyone, my name is Barkley, and I am a 10-year-old Standard Dachshund available for adoption at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay.
I came all the way here from a shelter in Mississippi, and I had some health problems when I arrived. I had an infection in both ears, skin dermatitis, and some of my teeth were in pretty bad shape; but the wonderful people here knew I deserved a second chance, so I was treated for all of my health problems!
I am currently on medicine for my ears, and I had a dental procedure performed where they polished up all of my teeth!
I am now looking for my forever home with people who will look past my age, and see that inside, I am still a young pup at heart! I like to hang out with people, and I never meet a stranger!
The good part about adopting an older dog is that I am past the puppy stage, and I won’t chew up your furniture! Give me a warm lap, or a plush little dog bed, and I am good to go!
Please come and visit me today! I so deserve that second chance at finding my forever home, so please find room in your heart for a special little dog! I hope that you come and visit me soon!
Here are the details of Barkley’s rescue from Mississippi last month:
