Meet Dexter

This high energy guy is ~1-2 years old young adult that came to ACDRA as an owner surrender. He weighs in at 33lbs, and is up to date on all vaccinations, preventatives, and is neutered.

This guy loves to play and will enthusiastically engage any dog or person to play with him. He can be mouthy when he is trying to get your attention, but responds to corrections appropriately. He has had issues with other dogs in the home, and should be an only dog at this point.

He does fine with the adults in the house and on walks, but he can nip when playing or startled, so he is looking for a home with no young children. He loves laying in the grass outside, and heaven for him is a nice belly rub on the lawn! This guy needs a yard to run around in and burn off some energy a couple times a day.

He is housebroken, but he will have an accident if you don’t see him quietly waiting at the door to go out. He has free roam of the house during the day, and has found a favorite dog pad to crash on when it’s quiet. He is crate trained and has had no issues overnight in his crate.

Dexter is being fostered in Jessup, MD and is looking for his forever home. If you think you are it, or have any other questions about Dexter, please reach out and contact
