  • Greyhound
  • Can live with children, any age
  • Doing
  • Needs an active home
  • Would like the company of another dog or dogs

Meet Dexter, a petite boy who’s about 26 inches to the shoulder, and very slight. Dexter is a friendly, confident chap, who loves people and other sighthounds. He has been assessed around other dogs and is very enthusiastic to meet them all! He will need some on-going socialisation, just to help him learn how to be polite – he really wants to say hello, and needs a little guidance on the best way to do it!

He has recently been on some trips out and as you can see, was very relaxed about the whole thing. He met lots of other dogs in the café, and was interested to say hello. He is learning fast and after a while was quite happy to just lie down and snooze while we had our coffee!

Dexter can live with children and would like to live with another dog. He can be left for periods of up to four hours. He walks really well on the lead and is happy walking in towns or countryside.

This lad is full of life and loves to play with his toys, so would love to be in a home where he can have someone to play with him! He is such a happy boy with a constantly wagging tail. If you think you would like to meet Dexter, then please do get in touch.
