Published Jun. 25

Barley is a 4½-year-old, 50-pound sweet, shar pei mix who enjoys cuddling, playing fetch, and just being around her people. She is a polite, sweet young lady, and her beautiful markings are almost as special as her personality. Barley believes cats are way too much fun to chase, so she will need a feline-free home. her adoption fee is $200 and you must own your home to adopt her. Prior to adoption, all dogs have been neutered/spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and dewormed. If you're interested in adopting from Pet Pal Animal Shelter, please visit her at Pet Pal Animal Shelter at 405 22nd St. S, St. Petersburg, during shelter hours Tuesday through Friday 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Visit petpalanimalshelter.com or call (727) 328-7738 for information.
