Message for "Name a Dog" donation:
My beloved boxer, Dexter, crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 7/17/18 after a four month battle with hemangiosarcoma. He was the kindest, silliest, and most affectionate dog in the whole world. He loved everyone that he met, and my whole life revolved around him and our adventures. I would like to honor him by donating and giving a boxer his name. I hope that the rescued pup goes on to enjoy a life as filled with love and devotion as my Dexter did. All dogs are gifts and deserve to have the unconditional love returned that they heap upon us. Thank you for working so hard to help the pups who did not have great starts to have happy endings.

Dexter came into the shelter in WV from a situation where he was not being fed properly and was being chained outside. He is very thin and only weighs 36 lbs. Dexter is estimated to be around a year old. He was in a temporary foster home while transport was arranged. They indicated that Dexter did wonderful with 8 other dogs and also with cats. He is a sweet and gentle boy. Dexter loves to sleep on the couch and is being taught how to live in a house.

Dexter has been in his foster home for a week now. His foster mom indicates that Dexter loves his foster sister, a female boxer. He has also done well with the children in the neighborhood. Dexter thrives on attention but isn’t pushy about it. He just really wants to please you. Dexter is doing really well with crate training. He is being fed several small meals a day to slowly increase his weight. Dexter has been a joy to have in his foster home.
