Dex came to us when his family was no longer able to take care of him. He is such a sweet boy and we quickly agreed to find him the most amazing retirement home.
Dex is a roughly 7-year-old Chihuahua mix. He is around the 20-pound mark, but he’s a little chubby so we are working to get some weight off him to better his health.
Dex is an easy-going guy who acclimated well into his foster family. He currently lives with other dogs and some kitty friends. He lives with young pups right now, but prefers a bit older crowd to stroll around with.
Dex does not currently live with kids, but he has an overall great disposition and we think he would do fine in a family who has children who have been taught how to be respectful of animals.
Dex is fully house and kennel trained and would make a great companion for a low-key family. He loves to go for walks, but with his older age, his energy level is not extremely high. He does well meeting new people and likes to ride in the car.
Dex should be adopted by a family who understands that he will take time and patience as he acclimates into his new life. He may have accidents, chew on things he is not supposed to, and bark in his kennel. It can take dogs a few weeks to properly acclimate to their new lives, so he is seeking a family that can give him this time and work with him as he adjusts.
We expect our dogs to be adopted by families who plan to keep them as indoor pets and part of the family. We do not adopt to families who plan to keep dogs outside for an extended period of time, for example the entire workday.
Dex is fully vetted - shots, neuter, deworming microchip. He has been heartworm tested - negative. He has no known health or allergy issues.
