Dexter is the adorable little guy second from the left in the photo. He and his family were born to a feral mother under a shed in the cold. The mother appears to be a Border Collie mix, with 9 puppies all ranging in breed. She began attacking the puppies for food when they were approx. 4 weeks old so they were all placed in foster care and have been being socialized and very well socialized I may add. Dexter is with 3 siblings in a foster home where an adult dog, cats and children are all apart of his family. Dexters foster family says he loves to play and rough house with other dogs and people. He also seems to be very curious and have the Border Collie intelligence. They will be ready for adoption 1/26/09. He needs a loving, forever home where he will be considered part of the family and will receive the attention, training, exercise and health care he needs to be a great pet for life. Could it be with you?
