Be sure to see a little video of Dexter below:
Dexter is very happy boy that is a little over 2 years old. He likes his walks, to play with my other dogs, to cuddle and sleep on his foster’s lap. He likes to play with toys and chews. He has been kennel trained for night time. He rides in cars easily. He loves to dance on his hind legs.
Dexter is an energetic dog that likes his walks in the morning and enjoys running around in the yard. Would do well with an athletic or active family. Early evening is when he likes to play with the other dogs or with his toys. Loves to run after the ball and retrieve it.
Dexter is smart and learns quickly. He has had only 2 accidents in the house in the 3 weeks since he arrived. Quick correction seems to work. Once he settled in he wants to please so giving him parameters to work with is important. He is great on a leash. Still working on meet and greet with other dogs. He barks at them and wants to chase them.
He demonstrates a normal curiosity of new things and keeps a wide berth around things that he is unsure of. That said, he is not fearful of much. He takes things head on and has a much bigger personality then his stature. If a new female enters the scene, then he becomes excited. He tries to exert his dominance over new dogs and will mark his territory.
Not very social with people or animals that are outside the yard. He will bark and make sure someone knows that there are people on “his” street. Once they come into the yard then he is curious and wants to meet and greet everyone. If he thinks he can dominate then he will try to do so.
He has tendency is to want to dominate. He will submit if he must. He would do well in a one dog home although the 2 dominate females in his foster home have put him in his place and he is fine with that. Dexter shows bark aggression in the walks with other dogs. Nothing towards people. For a little guy who made it this long on the streets, he survived with his bark aggression. More training and confidence would go a long way to stopping this behaviour. Dexter may not be good with cats since he has a pretty strong prey drive. Likes to chase things he sees in the yard.
