Through no fault of his own, Dexter, formerly Liam, is coming back to us. His adoptive family loves him so much they want to hold on to him until we can rehome their love. They say this about their baby: Dexter is 18 months old, 68 pounds, and according to his DNA test he is 75% American Staffordshire Terrier, 12.5% boxer, and 12.5% hound. He is solidly house trained, loves his crate, has been neutered, is heart worm negative, and completely up to date on all shots, and heart worm and flea treatments. He had his annual check up last month and was given a clean bill of health. Dexter loves people and other dogs. He’s a bit fearful of big aggressive dogs and has not really been around children.  He has a lot of energy and loves to play. He will run and play with both people and dogs until he is completely exhausted. He thinks he is a lap dog and loves to cuddle. He doesn’t like being alone for long periods of time. He is a power chewer and finding toys for him is a challenge! He enjoys chewing on antlers. He doesn’t chew things he’s not supposed to, even when unsupervised, with the exception of paper, blankets, and pillows. It’s best to keep those things out of reach! He’s pretty good on a leash (with a front hook harness) and loves to take long walks. He loves food and will eat ANYTHING, a favorite is goose poop (yuck!). He responds to “leave it!” Pretty well, unless it’s goose poop (ick!). The biggest challenge with this sweet boy is meeting his need for lots of exercise and keeping him from jumping on people. He has always been loved and treated kindly so he trusts people easily. Dexter is such a good boy. He’s friendly and affectionate and protective without being aggressive. show less
