2883 Dexter

ID #: 2883 Age: 4 yrs Gender: male Status: adopted

Hi everyone!  My name is Dexter and I’m four years old.  I’m not sure where I was before I met the good folks at Golden Rescue, but wherever it was, I didn’t get much training.  Having said that, my fantastic foster family is teaching me all your human stuff and I’m starting to get the hang of everything.  I’m a strong boy so that leash thing is a bit of a work-in-progress.  You see, I get pretty excited when it’s walkies time and I want to meet every human, canine or squirrel I meet along the way and will pull to get over to see them.  I’m not at all aggressive…I’m simply boisterous, enthusiastic, and friendly.  I love people but I must admit I love men more than women.  I’m okay with women, so don’t get me wrong ~ it just takes me a little longer to warm up to them.  Once I get to know them, I’m fine.  My recall needs some work but I do love to run and exercise so working on my recall in a fenced safe area would be really good for me.  I have been described as a gentle, handsome, loving, quiet boy.  I’m no language specialist but I’m pretty sure they’re all good things.  I’m not a big barker…don’t see the point of all that noise but I do whine if you have to leave me alone.  I’m not destructive ~ I just don’t like being left alone so a few hours at a time is fine but if you left me alone all day, I would get very sad.  I love being petted but I don’t like being handled and probed so that makes it a little difficult for the vet or for you to bathe me.  I don’t snap or anything ~ I just don’t like it.  I am getting a bit better with all that but you would need to be patient with me.  I do have a bit of a stiff back leg but I can jump into the car no problem and I can run like the wind.  In fact, I love running and playing fetch or playing anything for that matter.  I also love just hanging out in the house with you.  Do you have some space in your life and heart for me?

Dexter is currently being fostered in the Ottawa, ON area. If you would like more information about Dexter please call our hot-line toll free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
