Dexter Needs a Home

About Dexter

Dexter is looking for a foster or forever home. Dexter comes from a loving home where he lived with his family but due to unfortunate circumstances Dexter needs to be rehomed. He is 6 years old.

He is a big softy and loves nothing more than spending time with his family. Either next to them on the sofa or at their feet. He loves to lie by an open fire when it’s cold outside.

Dexter is crate trained and will happily go to his create if the door is left open.

He can pull quite hard when out for a walk, he will try to make a dash for the front door once he see’s that the walk is coming to and end and he can see the house! Due to his size Dexter has never been off the lead when out and about and he will need an experienced owner that is comfortable handling dogs.

Dexter knows basic commands but might benefit from further training

He is a lovely natured boy who is very mellow and loving.

Please contact the rescue if you are interested.

Home checks, Vet  checks and Adoption fees apply.
