Dexter is a handsome gent! Dexter is a happy, mellow dog who enjoys lounging and snuggling. He also does enjoy hikes and long walks. Dexter is very loving, but would do best as on only child. Dexter has done well with people, other dogs, and even some cats but he does like his own space. Dexter would do better with older children. He is being rehomed as he is happier in peace and quiet, and his original parents have a typical 3-year-old who unsettles Dexter. There have NOT been any aggression incidents; Dexter is just unhappy with the noise and chaos. 

Dexter is waiting to be swooped up as the love of someone's life...could it be you?

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

All potential adopters will be required to complete our Adoption Application, read and sign our Adopting Policies and Procedures, and participate in a home visit by one of our adoption representatives. Our Adoption Application is located on our website: We also have a mandatory two-week Foster With Intent to Adopt trial period for all animals in order to be certain the pet is a good fit for your family. Our standard adoption fee for dogs is $200; puppies are $250. Non-standard fees do sometimes apply. Puppies younger than six months may have a higher fee. Designer dogs, purebreds, and other toy type breeds may also have higher adoption fees than the standard $200. We do, however, have discounted fees for dogs that are seniors, a pair of dogs adopted together, or cats. If you are a veteran or an active duty service member, please ask about our partnership with Pets For Patriots. All Underdog pets are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped prior to adoption. We are a 501c3 non profit, your donations save lives and are 100% tax deductible.

Go meet their pets

We attend multiple adoption events throughout the valley during Spring and Fall. If you are interested in a specific pet, please complete our adoption application found on our website and we can then coordinate a meet and greet.
