Adopt an animal

Dexter

Age: 14 monthsSex: MaleBreed: Lurcher

Found their forever home!

Dexter came to the centre via an inspector after his needs were not getting met, he was very underweight when he arrived at the centre and although he has gained some weight since, he still needs to gain more. He is a real friendly boy who can be slightly shy on first meetings, once he knows and trusts you he is ever so friendly and loves a fuss.

Dexter will need some basic training as unfortunately he received very little attention in his previous home, he is keen to learn new things through positive reinforcement and has come on leaps and bounds since first arriving. He is a young, bouncy and playful dog who has many years ahead of him. Dexter is more confident when he is around other dogs so ideally we are looking for a home where there is an existing confident dog already. He loves to play so any other dogs in the home will need to match his activity levels and enthusiasm, he will need active adopters who will not leave him on his own for long periods of time as this is something he just is not used to.

Dexter is suitable to live with other dogs and children aged 13 years and over.

DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF APPLICATIONS WE ARE RECEIVING, IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD BACK FROM FROM US WITHIN 2 WEEKS IT MEANS UNFORTUNATELY YOU HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL THIS TIME FOR THIS DOG. SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS WILL BE INVITED TO THE CENTRE TO MEET HIM.
