Dexter is a very, very affectionate young man. He is a bundle of energy and loves to play! He doesn't understand why he hasn't been adopted yet, he hears that it could be because he is part Pit, but he doesn't even know what that means!
He knows basic commands like sit, stay, and wait and would love a family that will continue to teach him, he is eager to learn! He is a goofy boy that also loves to chew on antlers and has learned that these are his to chew.
If you are looking for a smart boy that wants to please...check out Dexter!
