Dexter's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.

Dexter's Story...
“Can I tell you a secret? I love you already!!!”

Dexter has got to be one of the happiest dogs we’ve ever had. His little happy feet tap dance the second we walk into his room. He can barely contain his excitement when we approach his kennel, and his beautiful baby eyes look at us as if to say, “Come here. Can I tell you a secret? I love you already!” Well, Dexter, we love you, too.

When Dexter enters the play yard, it’s time for zoomies. And zoomies. And more zoomies. He will pause long enough for some back scratches and a full body hug or two, then he’s back at play bowing, tap dancing, and zooming his handsome little body all around the place. You can’t see him in action and *not* smile. Actually, you can’t even meet him without smiling. We dare you to try. Those happy feet get us every time.

At about 3 years of age, Dexter is still a young one who has overcome some of his puppy habits but not others. He will jump up for attention, and he certainly has energy to spare. But his sheer exuberance is a personality trait, and we don’t see that fading away anytime soon.

Dexter arrived from California and is fully vetted and ready for a home now. We’re told that he is not good with cats. Dexter is dog selective -- with dogs his size, he wants to engage in play, but he will hold his own if a conflict arises. Because of his size and energy level, we suspect that he would do better in a home with older kids, so you’re welcome to bring the whole family in to meet him.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dexter, a Meridian Mixed Breed (Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mixed Breed (Medium) for sale in Meridian, or seeking a Mixed Breed (Medium) dog from a breeder in Meridian.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Meridian 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 Meridian 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 Mixed Breed (Medium) breeders who help with Mixed Breed (Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Meridian paves the way for another one to be saved.
