Facts about Dexter

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 16050DO
Dexter was born on 3/3/11 and is a very sweet Chihuahua! He loves to play and tangle with soft stuffed animals. Dexter is a real affectionate and loving dog who wants to be snuggled. He gets along with other dogs but doesn't play with them, as he prefers to be alone. At times, he will growl at the other dogs and other people, but not furiously. Dexter is more protective than aggressive, and he quiets when the knows that the situation is okay. Dexter gets along with children, but prefers to be with adults more than children. He is timid around younger children and unsure if they will hurt him. Dexter is easily startled but recovers quickly. He loves to sleep under the covers and snuggle next to people. If he is let out frequently, he does well with potty training, but if he is left alone for awhile he may have an accident. Dexter is currently crated with other dogs when no one is home and does well. He is not crate trained when humans are home. Dexter has a microchip, has been vet checked, neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and tested negative for heartworm. Call 507-451-4512 for a meet-and-greet in the foster home. Dexter's adoption fee is $200.00. (C&PH)

About Steele County Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

We all know that kittens/puppies have a lot of spunk and energy and are perfect for some people. However, by adopting a more mature animal, you bypass the active kitten/puppy phase and it allows you to take the guess work out of what your pet will be like after he/she does some growing.

The Steele County Humane Society, Incorporated is a not for profit organization dedicated to:
* Providing quality foster care for homeless cats and dogs.
* Encouraging the adoption of homeless cats and dogs.
* Encouraging spaying and neutering to reduce the pet overpoplulation.

We rely on the love and care of volunteers to foster our animals until a permanent home can be found and are in desperate need of people willing to open their hearts and homes to these pets in need. Please call 507-451-4512 for more information.
