Meet Dexter, the cutest little beagle you’ll ever meet! Dex is one of Castaway's Research Beagles. He served the community by helping to make products safe for people. He is now retired from research and is looking for a forever home outside of the lab. He is 5 years old, current on his vaccinations, and is crate trained.
Dexter is a very sweet guy, but he has a special need. He was recently diagnosed with a unique form of epilepsy. He doesn't know what's happening to himself when he has a seizure, and can get aggressive during one of his episodes. Thankfully, the medication is helping and epilepsy is something that can be managed easily with fairly inexpensive medication.
Dex is looking for that special someone that has the patience and understanding to keep him on the right track with his meds. He would really thrive in a quiet home with no other dogs or small children.

Please bring any dogs, children, and decision makers to your appointment. Be prepared to adopt and take your new family member home that day if we have a match.
