ADOPTED by his Foster Mom :)
Dex is a darling boy! He came into the MCAS shelter over 4 months ago, a scared puppy and in poor health, due to demodex mange.
Fortunately, he was able to be placed in a volunteer MCAS Foster Home, and with good care - baths/medication/gentle attention -Dex's heath (and skin and fur) have really improved!
Dex is a total sweetheart, but a bit of a heartbreaker, as he is still very shy. Dex will benefit from having an easy going dog in the home, with wise, loving, yet not too serious people :)
Dex would like to learn to lighten up a little, but it will take time and a safe environment.
Dex is a handsome little guy who came into the shelter covered in mange. He has been in foster care for nearly 3 mths being treated and learning some manners. He is housebroken, but sometimes his signal to go outside is subtle. His new home will need to be diligent and keep up a routine! He knows sit, but could really use some obedience training. He has been in a house with children, dogs, and a cat that he would rather left him alone. He is about 6 mths old and weights 11lbs. He is currently in foster care, please contact the shelter at 503-988-7387 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
