Dexter Must Have:
- Someone who is home most of the time and another active, playful dog around his age that can show him the ropes. He needs a family to call his own.
- Have had dogs as an adult
- Recent/current dog experience a plus!
I’m Dexter, a delectable Havanese (mix) with white, black, brown and apricot cuteness who is 18 months young (or do I mean old?). While the shelter did me no favors when they shaved me, my hair is growing in nicely and I’m still managing to steal hearts with my sweet personality. My foster Mom says her photos don’t do me justice — but when you meet me my happy disposition, loving and playful nature comes shining through!
Did I also mention that I am a lucky pup? Let’s start with why I am so lucky. Until recently I was living on the street, scavenging for food and safety. Then I found myself in the ‘shelter’ where I was surrounded by a lot of barking and noises that scared me. But then I became a FurKid! That meant I was safe and Boy! was I relieved—and lucky!
Mom says I’m an energetic, friendly, loving and smart little guy, capable on standing on my hind legs for an impressive amount of time. Dad says I love to play with my toys and am getting quite good at chasing the ball and (drum roll please!) returning it. I’m also very interested in having new experiences and there are lots of them for me every day: like seeing birds and bikes – and strollers. I have already met and like a 5 year old little human. Babies also intrigue me so I may bark at first but it’s because I don’t know what they are or if they want to play.
I get along with everyone and little pups like me are my favorites. Everyone can become my new best friend! Mom says I’m a perky and active little guy who is very smart and likes to learn. For example, I’m very good about going potty. I haven’t had any accidents since my foster mom is very good with my routine and commands. While I don’t have a doggie door like some FurKids I know I could master that pretty fast. I also know the ‘Come’ command already. Mom and I are working on ‘wait’ (so we can go out the front door together.) That’s the next one on my list!
I try to do lots of things that make Mom smile. How’s that for wanting to please? I love my walks! Of course, we can’t forget the ‘going for a ride in the car’ behavior. Well, let me tell you there is nothing more fun than riding in the car!
If you have a heart for an energetic, active and happy pup then we should definitely meet. I’ll make you proud of all that I can become now that I’m a FurKid. So if you want to be a super hero, please ask for me.
Cuddles and Snuggles,
Deserving and Delightful Dexter
