Comments:
Dexter is an OEB who adores people and is still learning manners on how to express his adoration. He wants nothing more than to please his person.

Dex has a very sensitive stomach and food changes need to be made incredibly slowly to ensure regular bowel movements. Dex will remain on hold while we work on his manners and confidence.

5/21/21: Dexy is such a good boy when he has the chance to be one on one with his people. Dex is slowly learning to calm down in new situations and that his new friends won’t immediately be leaving. It looks like we have a happy tummy now on Purina Pro Plan Sensitive Salmon—healthy weight gain, happy poos—it’s the little things that excite us! He’s succumbed to Nebraska allergies as well and had his little stash of Benadryl, Zyrtec, and Apoquel with which to work. We’re hoping he’s more of a seasonal guy! Dex lived with small humans and a small dog at his last home but is reportedly a bit too interested in other dogs. His foster mama continues to work with him on confidence and meeting new pups.

7/2/21:He likes to be called Dex, Dexy (or here lately its been Dexy Do Do). Dex is a LOVER! He can not get close enough or get enough attention. His main goal in life is to be right by his human's side. He can get frustrated in new situations, but gets excited for more people to luv on! Dexy is also learning that he is big in real life, so he doesn't just fit on the inch of couch he is trying to squeeze into, and jumping directly into someones arms doesn't usually go as planned.

He has a very sensitive tummy and will need to be kept on a regular diet. Slow feeder bowls don't work with his tongue, but even just dropping 5 pieces at a time, his 2 cups are gone within a minute. He has also learned a new happy dance that gets performed before every meal.

Since starting Apoquel, he is definitely calmer than he was at first. He is a lot more relaxed and it seems like he is calming down into a sleep all day kinda guy. "But it's ok because I know as soon as they are able, someone will come love on me."

"My favorite time of the day is right before bed though. I grab my baby and I meet up with my foster mom on my bed. I scoots over so she can sit on the bed with me and we just snuggle. I gets belly rubs and just love to be talked to and told how handsome I am." From foster mom: "That's my biggest hope for Dexy. He just needs someone that he can call his own and just get all of the attention he needs."

Interested adopters need to travel to Lincoln/Omaha with all family members and resident dogs to meet Dexter. Adoption fees for Dexter are $375.
