Dexter is an approximately one-year-old, 60-lb Australian shepherd currently being fostered in Bradenton, FL. This handsome guy is a silly puppy at heart! He loves playing, whether it’s with other dogs, in the water, or with his humans. He’s always up for a game of fetch or tug. He loves being outside, whether he’s running, digging, or in the kiddy pool. Although he enjoys a good bone or ripping up a stuffed toy, he also loves cuddles and sitting in his human’s lap (despite his size). Dexter is working on his training, including sit, down, place/stay, down/stay, paw, drop it, come when called, and leave it. He’s also working on his counter surfing and dumpster diving. He previously lived in a home with three children, and although he is friendly with children, he liked to steal their toys and snacks. One of his favorite things was to open a bedroom door and search for hidden treasure. With his new structured schedule and routine, he is learning to be a gentleman. He is working on his focus, patience, setting down inside and house manners. Dexter has an assertive temperament and moderate energy, and he will need a patient owner to continue his training. He is a potential agility or dock diving dog. Dexter is neutered, heartworm negative, and up to date on vaccines. He is house trained and crate trained. Dexter requires a home with a fenced-in yard.
