Derrick is an energetic young dude just waiting for a family that is just as excited as he is to teach him how to tame his energy! Derrick is a go, go, go kind of guy and has the energy to prove it! Derrick will be the perfect running or adventure buddy! He is still working on proper manners when greeting and playing with people, but he loves a good treat and is very food motivated. Derrick is a resource guarder and does not like to share high value treats and toys, but he is great at trading! Toys are one of Derrick’s favorite things — balls, ropes, and squeaky toys he loves them all! He will be a great companion and his antics will always put a smile on your face! Due to Derrick’s resource guarding, he is looking for a home without small children.


Derrick is an active boy with specific needs, which makes him one of our last-to-be-adopted pets, affectionately known as our Unfurgettable Friends! If you are interested in learning more about Derrick, email ATTN: Derrick and fill out the online pre-adoption form.
