Facts about Dexter

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Meet Dexter! A male, 8-10lb chihuahua. Dexter is 2-3 years old and was found as a stray covered in fleas. He's a very sweet boy that enjoys being a lap dog.

Dexter is currently fostered with several other dogs and gets along with them well. He seems to be slightly frightened of the larger dogs but is more comfortable with the small ones. He's a very devoted little boy who loves his people.

He is non-destructive so he is not crated when his foster mom is gone though he is not 100% house-trained. He still has accidents in the house. This may be partially because he is afraid to go outside with the bigger dogs.

This little boy is a little timid at first and gets to know/trust that you will not harm him. This is typical of many smaller dogs especially chihuahuas.

If you are looking for a little buddy to keep you company, snuggle and adore you, Dexter is your boy!!

If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application located at

All Dogs Unlimited Rescue dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on all shots, and are given a monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventative. Upon adoption, all vet records and any current medications are provided to the adopter.

THE SUBMISSION OF YOUR APPLICATION DOES NOT GUARANTEE AN ADOPTION NOR DOES IT OBLIGATE YOU TO ADOPT. Multiple applications are accepted for any available pet and a home is chosen that is the best match between the available pet and the potential furever family. Your application will be processed as quickly as possible and if approved, a home visit would be scheduled. No adoption is final until an Adoption Agreement is presented and agreed to by both parties.

Our goal is to find the right match of our dogs to their new family so all involved are furever happy! Questions: email

And THANK YOU for considering a rescue dog for your family!

About Dogs Unlimited Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Dogs Unlimited Rescue, Inc. is an all volunteer non-profit 501(c)3 organization that is dedicated to educating the public and saving abused and neglected animals from an uncertain fate. Our organization rescues animals from high kill shelters, abuse or neglect cases, owner surrenders, and the breeding parents in Ohio puppy mills that would otherwise be inhumanely disposed of. We improved their lives by providing quality care and placement into permanent loving homes. We will continue to educate, rescue, rehabilitate and encourage the adoption of pets from shelters and rescue groups.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees range from $50 to $250. Dogs Unlimited Rescue requires an adoption application to be filled out by the potential adopter, which requires 2 personal references and a vet reference. After the potential adopter is approved to adopt, the adopter is required to fill out an adoption agreement at the time of the adoption which clearly states all requirements and agreements between the adopter and Dogs Unlimited Rescue.
