  • Burt Team

    Burt Macklin

    Customer Service Representative

    5 Years of Experience

    Burt Macklin (retired FBI agent) is an almost 5-year-old-dog of the breed we like to call “yeah that sounds right” any time anyone asks us if he is a certain one. He is from Central Missouri and was rescued from the humane society in Columbia.

    Burt Macklin graduated top of his class from obedience school but after his teenage years of rebellion decided that sleeping was way better than listening to rules. He likes long walks around the block and eating anything you give him. You can find him in his chairs in the showroom eager to greet you, as long as you come to him because he really doesn’t want to move.
