About Dexter

Dexter is an awesome little guy who is much sweeter than he seems at first meeting. He does well with most other dogs, and would love a fenced yard to romp in. Despite his age, he loves to romp and lay out in the sun on a toasty day. He is in a foster home with another dog and does well with them, and is a very loyal little dude. He isn't a fan of getting his nails trimmed or being restrained, but is manageable. Give Dexter a chance to show you how wonderful he is, he is ready for a home of his own!

Dexter's adoption fee has been sponsored by a HAR parent who said goodbye to Crumpet recently, and wanted to help Dexter find his forever home!

Words from his fabulous foster mom in response to our Q & A session: "What makes your foster delightful/special? - He comes across as a tough guy, but he's really all mush when you get to know him. He'll plow into you for attention and then sit quietly next to you with his paw on your lap." "What cute things does he do? - He circles and pounces on baby carrots before he eats them. They're his favorite snack!" "What activities does your foster like most? - He likes to go on sniffing adventures on the nature trail at the park." "Describe THE ideal home for your foster: - He would love a home with adults and a dog buddy for companionship. He would enjoy a fenced in yard where he can explore on his own. It doesn't have to be an active home with lots of noise, but he does enjoy mental stimulation from the TV, radio, or puzzles to keep him curious. He would make a great travel companion in the car or RV. He loves to get out and about!" "What would you want people to know about your foster? - Dexter is a quirky guy with a lot of character."

Dexter’s personality is really sweet and he loves to play with his soft toys. You can see typical terrier qualities as far as energy, playfulness, feistiness and loyalty.  He bonds quickly to one person and wants to be your buddy, but he has lots of other human and doggy friends! He is a senior boy who weighs about 12 pounds.  He is a sweet and affectionate little guy who takes a bit to warm up to new people, but once he does, he is a super-cuddly companion. He has so much love to give!

I’m Gus (aka Gus Gus). My favorite things in the world are constant cuddles, napping on throw pillows, and taking my human on leisurely walks. Not gonna lie, I’m a bit of a couch hog. Be prepared to share your fluffy pillows, fuzzy blankets, and legroom. But, in exchange for tolerating my boundary issues, I’ll keep you warm and give you lots of kisses. I’ve started receiving a lot of mail from AARP, so I guess that means I’m over the hill. Nothing makes me happier than spending my day napping and cuddling with you. And, when you inevitably have to drag yourself off the couch and start adulting, I’ll deal. I’m great in my crate, especially when you toss in something comfy for me to sleep on. Although I’m affectionate and willing to tolerate just about anything from my foster mom (even baths!!), I’m still very unsure of strangers, and would be happiest in a home with just a couple adults who I know and trust. I wasn’t very well cared for in my early years, and the shelter was pretty traumatic for me. I’m still learning that I’m finally safe and loved. I just need someone who is willing to be patient with me and earn my trust. I promise I’m worth it.
