Poodle (Miniature)

1 year, 2 months
Medium  |  Male

Houston, TX



DEXTER is a fun loving little guy. When his foster pals dont want to play, Dexter doesnt let that stop him. He will throw a ball and run to pick it up. He loves his cuddles and looks to his human family for approval.

Dexter doesnt like his crate, but is not destructive. He knows sit, but can use some work on other basic skills. He loves to run but doesn't feel comfortable in a car. Although new places stress him at first, he adjusts quickly.

He gets along great with the other dogs in the house, and has proven to be a great, big brother to our 3 shepherd foster pups.
DID YOU KNOW that he is famous?

My 6 siblings and I were dumped in a wooden crate in a subdivision in Sugarland. 8 week old puppies should be learning to socialize and play, not trying to keep each other safe.
They had a case of coccidia, were covered in fleas and ticks and were dehydrated. 7 months later he is a gorgeous little boy whose favorite hobby is giving kisses.

Please contact for more information about this dog. You can apply online by clicking on Application . Once your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet at one of our adoption events. Thank you for considering a rescue!

The adoption fee includes vet check, vaccinations, Bordetella, de-worming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is a an additional $12.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip. If adopting a puppy, the rabies and spay/neuter will be done at the same time by our vet once they are 4 months old and billed to us. There is a $50 deposit on all puppies that have not been fixed yet. Once you provide us with proof of spay/neuter and rabies, you will receive your deposit back or we can send you a receipt to deduct from your taxes as a donation. It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
NOTE: In our bios, we provide information based on our volunteer's experience with a particular dog; such as temperament, training, and ability to get along with others.
AARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, all breed, no kill organization. Our group is always in need of donations in order to continue to give the needed medical care to our rescues. Adoption fees do not begin to cover all of the medical costs. Any donation, no matter how small is a big help and is greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue to help them. Thank you.
