American Staffordshire Terrier
White / Cream
Dont bother buying once of those fancy schmancy mattresses--Dexter will give you the ins and outs of novel sleeping positions! Wed like to introduce you to Dexter! No, really, we want you to meet this derpy dude. 

Dexter is around 2.5 yrs old and weighs about 70 pounds, but definitely a trim 70. He tries to be in tip top shape! He is a bit shy when he first meets people, but if youre nice to him and maybe give him some treats (subtle, right?), hell love you BIG time! Sometimes he thinks men can be particularly scary to meet, but hes really drawn to them once he realizes they are kind. And that they have treats. Treats help a ton! 

Dexter really is the sweetest, silliest boy. In fact, despite his size, Dexter strongly believes that your lap is his lap and will happily join you for a big slobbery kiss. 

Do you have another canine family member? Dexter has done great with small dogs and we think he can live with bigger dogs, too, but will need a slow and appropriate introduction to any doggy siblings. Because Dexter can be a bit shy, a low-activity, adult-only home (or a low-activity home with older kids) would be best for him. Hed also like a home without cats. He really just doesnt understand those creatures. 

Dexter is an athletic sort of pooch and needs a 6-foot privacy fence because he can be a little bit of an escape artist. He loves to play fetch with a ball , so keeping Dexter and his human(s) entertained is easy peasy. Hes super treat motivated, too. (In case you havent gotten the hint, the way to Dexters heart is definitely through his stomach - and his stomach loves treats!)

How about we get together to see if youre Dexters forever person/family? If youd like more information, call or text The Pet Connection at 913-671-7387. 

Dexter has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and is on flea/tick & heartworm prevention. If youd like to *meet* this beautiful boy, click on Apply to Adopt below!
