Name: Dexter
ID: 43886246
Breed: Terrier, Pit Bull / Mix
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 3 years 2 months
Size: Large
Location: Awaiting Foster
ABOUT ME: I'm a sweet, energetic boy who LOVES everyone! I'm very snuggly and affectionate. My favorite things are running fast, playing in water, and getting attention from humans! My foster mom said I'm super lovable and sweet. I love to spend time with my mom outside but also love to nap, A LOT. She also said I'm an A+ student at learning new things!

SKILLS: Sit, Stay, Crate trained, and house trained!

MY FOSTER HOME: I will need a calm, low traffic house with a backyard where I can get my zoomies out. I'd love a fun owner who will play with me, teach me new things, and let me cuddle with them on the couch. If I'm lucky enough, I'd love to snuggle up to you in bed too. My home should have no kids or other pets- I'm an attention hog!

MEDICAL: I have some neurological issues as a result of having distemper as a puppy. This displays as face twitching and gum chewing. Sometimes I struggle with anxiety as well, where I may get really rambunctious or bark for attention. I'm on medications to help me with this but a committed foster/adopter is key!

SPECIAL NOTE: While I'm not yet ready for adoption, I am available for foster-to-adopt!
