Everyone who has met Dexter agrees that he is one of the nicest little Chihuahuas they’ve ever met! Dexter is about 3 years-old and came to us from an overcrowded county dog shelter with an unknown history. Although we don’t know what led him to be homeless at a shelter, Dexter isn’t letting all the recent change in his life get him down. Dexter has a positive attitude and loves making new human friends wherever he goes. He loves being held and carried and, at about 7 pounds, that’s super easy to manage. Dexter has gotten along fine with the other dogs in his foster home but loves his humans so much that he might not like to share them with another dog during couch and snuggle time. He has kept his crate spotless and has yet to make a peep in his foster home. Short walks around the block would suit him just fine. His adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Dexter. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
