Pet Of The Week – Dexter

Please meet Dexter! Deter is a young black lab mix who is not quite full grown.  He came to Green Hills Animal Shelter in May 2020, and he has been absolutely stealing the hearts of all our staff and volunteers from the moment he walked in the doors.

Dexter is a very sweet boy who loves people, and shelter staff describe him as one of the most social dogs they’ve ever met. He is sweet and gentle and loves being in the company of humans. In addition to being very sweet and gentle, Dexter is also a very happy boy, who is always so thankful when he gets to go on a walk or outside to play. He is very obedient and genuinely wants to please. Dexter knows how to sit on command and walks wonderfully on a leash, and with his intelligence and his genuine desire to please, we have no doubt that he could master just about any command or trick.

Because of Dexter’s sweet, gentle nature, he is a little timid when faced with all the other dogs at the shelter, but once he is outside the commotion he settles down and can’t wait to spend time with you or another furry dog buddy.

If Dexter could describe his dream home, he would say that the most important thing to him is simply being in a home where he could spend his days being part of a family. He would love to go for long walks, and share his days with you, and he would love to have his own toys to play with. Because Dexter is so sweet and gentle, he would also be very happy to share his home with children or another dog. He would be so thankful to be in a home, and promises to make his adopter’s heart smile every day!

Dexter has been neutered, dewormed, heartworm tested and is up to date on all vaccinations, including rabies.  The only thing he is missing is that very special home and family of his own; could that home be yours?
