Greetings, my name is Dexter and I am a young and active boy.  When meeting new people I may need a little bit of time to get to know them, but when I do I love them for life.  I have spent time in boarding and at doggie daycare.  When I first arrive at a place like those. I can be a bit unsure.  It does not take long for me to realize that these are safe and happy places for me to be.  I guess you can say that I warm up nicely.  I am ready to find me a forever home.

Shelter Notes

6/11/2019: Dexter is behaving like a gentlemen in his foster home! He is getting along with people of all ages as well as other dogs. As you can see, he recently had a photoshoot at the shelter! He is very eager to find his forever home. Please feel free to call the shelter today and ask us about Dexter!

4/26/2019:  Dexter continues to show improvement while in his foster home.  He has a lot of energy, loves attention and is trust worthy in the home, not needing to be in a kennel. He is also housebroken, knowing to do all his business outside.  He is getting along well with all people (although he may need a minute to warm up to most) and he enjoys the company of other dogs.  He continues to be a little timid with unfamiliar sounds outside, will bark and then go right over to his foster folk for protection.  “Overall, he has been the easiest and one of the sweetest dogs we’ve fostered thus far.  As long as the potential adopter can take him out regularly or has the space available to let him run, he’s going to be a great companion.”

4/17/2019:  Dexter is doing very well in his foster home.  He enjoys laying on both his Foster Mom and Dad’s lap.  He also is hesitant to new dogs, but warms up to them nicely.

4/15/2019:  Dexter is currently available from a foster home.  If you are interested in meeting him and would like more information please call the shelter @ 978-745-9888 and ask to speak with Sue or any available adoption counselor.
