Dexter

Adorable Dexter is an unusual looking little boy - he is a small dog weighing just 8kg with little stumpy legs and quite a long body!
He has sadly found himself in our care due to a change in his owner's circumstances.
Dexter had only lived in this home for 9 months after his original owner passed away.
This boy is now desperate to find some consistency in a stable, loving home.

Dexter recently went on a trial with a family and despite initially settling in well unfortunately he began to display some behavioural issues, particularly around food.
It appears that Dexter resource guards and will bite when challenged. He is not suitable for a first time dog owner and will need a very experienced home. His new owner must be prepared to work with our behaviourist and follow all advice given.
Anyone wishing to adopt Dexter will need to make multiple visits to the rescue centre in order to form a bond with him before adoption. This will then progress into a slow introduction into the home so please do bare your location in mind before inquiring about him.

Dexter mixes well with other dogs on walks and there were two other dogs present in the home where he went for his trial stay. We are told that he was brilliant around the other dogs but unfortunately due to his resource guarding we feel he would be best suited to being the only dog in the home.

Dexter will need an adult only home free from visiting children and without any plans for children in the future. Due to his young age he will also need someone around for most/all of the day.
