No Small KidsNo DogsNo Cats
Name: Dexter
ID: 43886246
Breed: Terrier, Pit Bull / Mix
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 3 years 6 months
Size: Large
Location: 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!

DREAM HOME: I will require a calm, low traffic house with a securely fenced in 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.

DOGS: No dogs for me. I need all the attention I can get.

KIDS: No kiddos either! I'm super rambunctious and kids cannot keep up with me.

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: Potential adopters get to take me on a test drive through a trial adoption.

The SPCA of Texas completes rigorous medical and behavioral testing on every animal in our care. The organization fully discloses all known medical and/or behavioral conditions, including any incidents of biting or violent behavior toward a human, to all adopters and fosters. Despite the rigorous testing our veterinary and behavioral professionals conduct throughout every animal’s stay in our facilities, other new and/or unknown medical and/or behavioral conditions may manifest in any animal at any time. By adopting or fostering an animal from the SPCA of Texas, adopters and fosters acknowledge at the time of adoption or fostering that they may receive an animal with an undetected medical and/or behavioral condition and/or that a new medical and/or behavioral condition may appear at any time in the future. Any pet adopted from the SPCA of Texas can be returned to us at any time for any reason at no cost.
