 Rex, formerly named Dexter, ended up at our doors when his original owner lost their home. This little man has a golden personality, but please keep in mind that he does not trust very well. It's hard telling what Rex originally went through in his younger years, but it's very obvious he has developed trust issues with people and other animals. Rex will need a family or person who is willing to be patient with him. He has a hard time with his words, so he lets you know what he dislikes by using his teeth. Please keep in mind that his butt is a very sensitive place for him. But once he gets to know you and trusts you, his belly is a great spot to rub on freely! Rex is very sweet and is waiting for that special person who can understand him and his past.This pet is considered to be a special case animal due to the current circumstances placed upon the pet of being removed from its original home/environment. This pet will require extra time and patience in order to become familiar and comfortable with its new home/environmentUnless otherwise stated, the adoption fees for dogs over 5 months range from $50-$175.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
