UPDATE: DEXTER is currently in a foster-to-adopt home and will only be available for families to meet with if his adoption is not finalized.
Dexter was taken in from a friend who could no longer take care of him, and now needs a new home with a family who has the time and resources to give him the best life.
We tried our best to give him the care he needed. I feel he needs more structure, exercise and training them we can give him at this time. He counter surfs, and gets in the trash if it’s not secured. He’s high energy and playful but we’ve never seen any dog aggression out of him. He lives with other dogs in our home and has been to dog parks and dog beaches. We have seen him have incredible prey drive with trash trucks or Amazon trucks which can be a lot to handle. He also is protective of his home with strangers like the mail man or delivery trucks. He’s never been aggressive to any guests or friends or children in the slightest even our pool guy is fine but he seems to hate delivery people. – Current Family
Dexter is not destructive. He’s crate trained, although trustworthy in the house (minus the trash situation). At night, he’s happy to sleep in a dog bed, and he’s so well potty trained he has never had an accident in the house. Dexter loves to play ball, and enjoys his ropes and tennis balls.
Dexter is three years old, located in Saugus, CA, and great with children and other dogs, but unfortunately, we don’t think he will be good with cats or other small furry animals.
Please submit an adoption application if you would like consider having Dexter join your family. Thank you!
