Dexter is one really cool dog. He’s a beautiful purebred boy, AKC (although never registered), and as sweet as they come even though he’s confused at this recent turn of events in his life. He was released to a shelter because his family could no longer care for him with the addition of a toddler.
Update June 14: Dexter is just a sweetheart, a big 80 lb teddy bear. Here’s what we’ve learned about him in the past week:
Gives lots of kisses
No accidents in the house, and can use the doggy door
Trustworthy in the house, I’ve left him and the other dogs up to 3 hours with nothing out of place
He follows me everywhere, a true velcro dog
Doesn't pull on the leash unless he wants to check something out
Takes treats well if reminded to be gentle, and waits his turn
Enjoys the other dogs but would probably do well as an only dog
Gets along great with the other 3 dogs here, but have not seen small dogs or cats to check that out
He is still on light activity use to his neuter 6 days ago, still some swelling.
