BACKGROUND AND PERSONALITY
Dexter came to us as his owner was struggling to give him the care he needed.
When Dexter arrived he appeared to be a friendly and sociable little dog, however after spending a trial period at a home issues started to come to light.
Generally Dexter is a lovable, playful and affectionate boy but he does not like being over-handled.
BEHAVIOUR AND MEDICAL ISSUES
Dexter has quite severe resource guarding issues mainly around food. Dexter spent several months with a family who worked very hard with our behaviourist and they did see an improvement with his behaviour, however they did have two other dogs in the home and although Dexter generally mixed well with these dogs our behaviourist felt that his need to resource guard was escalated by their presence.
Dexter is in good health and does not have any ongoing medical issues.
TYPE OF HOME NEEDED
Dexter will require a very experienced adult only home with a calm and confident owner who is familiar with dog body language. He will need time to settle in at his own pace and would benefit from a quiet environment with little visitors.
Dexter will need an adult only home free from visiting children and with no children planned for the future.
Dexter can mix well with some dogs on walks, however we are looking for a home where he can be the only dog, he does not like cats and will fixate on small animals so a pet free home is needed.
Dexter’s new owner will need to spend several weeks visiting the rescue centre in order to form a relationship with him. This will then progress into a slow introduction into the home so please do bare your location in mind before you apply to adopt him.
