A volunteer writes: I looked at Rex and my first thought was he looked liked he was playing with someone''s lipstick and smeared it on his mouth like kids do. I didn''t want to hurt his feelings so laughed inside, but he is so frigging cute with that little mouth. In his kennel sitting up front, letting me know he''d really rather be out where the action is, I leashed him easily and off we go. Rex will benefit from a harness and some leash training as he pulls hard in his efforts to get from here to there. Play bowing to a dog passing us, when in playgroups he''s a rough and tumble player with both males and females. Off leash in a pen, Rex shows me his ''sit'' in exchange for a treat which he takes softly. When excited, Rex can get a little mouthy, so needs some positive reinforcement training to learn what''s appropriate. Every time a person or a dog passed our pen Rex was at the gate, tail wagging, play bowing, ready to invite everyone inside to play. A big personality, gorgeous and energetic, our boy Rex is looking for an experienced person with whom to go home. Come meet him today.

Another volunteer writes: I met Rex by chance the other night--I decided to start walking whichever dog was closest to me, and there was Rex. And thank goodness for chance, or else I would not have had the opportunity to spend time with this furry prince. Rex came to the front of his cage, and he immediately captured my heart. We walked to the park on a very, very chilly night, and Rex couldn''t have cared less about the temperature. He was happy as a clam to walk around and explore the world, and he very proudly showed me his ability to `sit.` In fact, Rex was so proud to show off his `sit` that he would sit down randomly in the middle of the sidewalk, looking up at me with those sweet eyes. He probably had more than his fair share of treats during our walk, but how could I resist that face? A sweet, cuddly boy, Rex is a 1 year old boy who would love to be your new best friend. Come down and meet him today!
