Dexter is a Treeing Walker Coon Hound that is about 18 months old. He is very people oriented; he wants nothing more than to be around his family. When at rest he loves to lay on the couch or even in your lap. He loves to sleep in bed with his foster family, too. He is extraordinarily affectionate. He does very well with other dogs in the family as he loves to play. Dexter does very well with going to his kennel but he should be in the same area as other dogs or he gets lonely and will bark. He loves to play and would do very well with a high energy family who can take him for long walks or to the dog park. He loves a fenced in yard that he can run in!
When Dexter was younger someone shut his leg in a kennel door and it was fractured. He’s been through a lot with that leg, enduring an infection and painful surgeries to repair and then removal of the hardware. Because of this, he will sometimes hold his leg up particularly in the cold weather. But, given a bit more time, the doctors assure us he will have a complete recovery.
Dexter has excellent potty habits but has been very stubborn to learn other commands. He steadfastly refuses to sit, although if you say “treat” he will go right to the treat area. He’s no dummy.
Dexter loves kids and grownups alike. Unfortunately, he does not do well with cats as he does see them as something to chase and mouth.
He is a huge love bug and deserves a home of his own. He is neutered and up to date on his shots. If you would like more information about Dexter you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The adoption application can be completed HERE.
