Dexter's Info...

Dexter's Story...
Dexter is a 3 y/o male who was turned into the shelter by his owner. At 14 inches and 27 pounds, he is a perfect beagle boy, who just needed something to control his fleas. His coat is still thin on the sides where he lost most of his fur but it is filling in nicely.

Dexter has good house manners and uses a dog door without problems. He enjoys being out in the yard so likes the freedom the door gives him. He has been known to chew on a pencil that he has found on the floor, but generally restricts his chewing to hoofs.
Dexter gets along great with his foster pack and can be found anytime of the day playing with a 2 y/o buddy! He walks well on a leash and enjoys taking rides in the car.

He has been “Road Tested” with the neighborhood kids and received 2 thumbs up! He did chase their cat so can’t vouch for his behavior if he had a cat living in a home with him.

Dexter is a sweet, happy boy who likes everyone he meets. He does enjoy a good cuddle and prefers to sleep next to his person at night. He has been taught by his foster brothers the art of sneaking under the covers on the big bed, but will go sleep on a dog bed when asked. Dexter will make a great companion for some lucky family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dexter, a Houston Beagle dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Beagle for sale in Houston, or seeking a Beagle dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Houston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Beagle breeders who help with Beagle rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
