Dexter is an adorable 8 – 10 month old Jack Russell Terrier cross puppy. He is a very lovable, affectionate, friendly and fun loving dog, full of life and a very quick learner.
Dexter would love to find his new home where someone is around for most of the day as he is still a very young dog and who will commit themselves to taking him out for lots of walks and and giving him training. As any young dog of this age, he is very lively and just seems to keep on going, and going, and going. His foster carer describes him to definitely having Duracell batteries in him.
Dexter is a clever boy and loves to be centre of attention. He picks things up very easily and would train easily. He loves to play with other dogs and is very sociable. Dexter is currently fostered in a multi-dog household and interacts well with them. He could easily be homed with another suitable resident doggy companion or as an only dog.
Dexter is house trained and travels well in the car. He sleeps well at night and can be left for short periods once settled.
Dexter was unfortunately found as a stray, and as he was not micro-chipped, he has had to do his time in ‘The Pound’, waiting to see if his owner came to collect him. His time was up and fortunately came to Lea Valley Dog Rescue, rather than be ‘Put To Sleep’. As we do not have any history on him, as with any stray dog, we will not re-home Dexter with young children. However, we feel Dexter would live happily with other, respectful children or an adult only home.
Dexter is neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, wormed and flea treated.
Dexter is currently in foster in Welwyn, Hertfordshire. We are looking to re-home him in or around this area or neighbouring counties as a home check will be done, although other areas may be possible for the right home.
If you feel you can offer lovely Dexter a wonderful forever home please fill out an adoption form on our web site (see details in the About Us tab below) and speak with Lynne 077666 60825 who is fostering him for more information.
