***** Dexter has been with us longer than we would like so he is a member of our Lonely Hearts Club and his adoption fee has been reduced to $300. *****

Name: Dexter

Age: 1 years old

Weight: ~72 lbs

Personality: Daaaaaang Dexterl! Back at it again with the puppy eyes! I am a sweet, cuddly big goofy boy and I'm so excited to meet anyone and everyone who will give me lots of treats and pets (especially belly rubs!!). I am a rambunctious boy who loves to be the center of attention! Because of my high energy and rambunctious personality, I would do best in a home with teenage children or older! I can get a bit nervous when meeting new people for the first time, but give me treats and some time and I will be your best furrend! I can't wait to find a fabulous new home with plenty of room to run and exercise. My hobbies include chewing on my bone, zoomin' in the yard, and solving my puzzle toys! Won't ya come and meet me?

Medical History: I appear to be a healthy pup, but it is strongly recommended to get me set up with a regular vet shortly after adoption to ensure I am on track.

Adoption Fee: $300 + tax
