Pet of the Week - Buckley


Meet Buckley, the Weatherford Parker County Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week.

This 66-lb. German shepherd has been a shelter resident since the end of June and has since made a name for himself as the clever canine who knows how to open gates.

Buckley is currently recovering from a leg injury and is also heartworm positive, so he is looking for a home where he can take it slow for awhile and simply enjoy getting some rest next to his favorite human companion.

His shelter ID is 77325.

Anyone interested in Buckley or any of his friends can visit the Weatherford Parker County Animal Shelter Tuesday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., with extended hours on Wednesday and Friday until 6 p.m. Visit the animal shelter’s website and see all of the available dogs at

Adoption fees are $100 for female dogs, $90 for male dogs and $50 for cats. All “special needs” animals are $25. Follow the shelter on Facebook to see all of its specials.
