Adopt Dexter a Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut Labrador Retriever / Basset Hound /
Apply to Adopt Me! I am “Dexter”! I love the most important people in my life. I will snuggle with them and follow them everywhere they go. And when I say everywhere, I mean everywhere, all the time. My foster mom says it doesn’t matter what time of the day or night it is if she gets up, I get up and follow her. To people outside of my circle, I am introverted and shy. It takes me some time to decide who my people are. Because of this, I will need some time before I start to snuggle with you. I will need you to understand that I may not snuggle right away and I might even bark or growl but if you give me some space, it won’t be long before I will get as close to you as I can get and follow you wherever you go. Children and other dogs (especially those that are not calm and submissive) scare me. It’s not that I can’t be with other dogs (I was previously in a home with 3 fur siblings), it’s just that I do better when things are calm and I am given my space. Even though I like to play with toys, chew on bones (nylabones are my favorite) and am nice on walks, I like downtime with my human friends the most. I am longing to be the only pet (or with calm, well-mannered pets) in a home with people who will give me my space so I can decide I am safe. And if you can give me that, please ask about me. I weigh about 20 lbs, am approx 5 yrs old, crate trained and potty trained. Come meet me today—you might just be 1 of my people!
