Dexter

September 02, 2014

Dear THS,

It’s only about the second day we have had Dexter and he is completely amazing. I fell in love with him the first day I saw him at the Toronto Humane Society.

I was told that he is very high energy (which is completely true) and his high prey drive, which I don’t see much of, already I have taken him on multiple walks where he has watched squirrels run around and even a cat ran right in front of him last night, and I just make him sit and stay and that is what he does, even when small dogs on other leashes start charging and barking at him! Dexter, I can already see has great self control!

He is huge but soo cuddly as well, he falls asleep with his head laying on me in my bed! Also, he is already getting along quite well with my other dog even though at THS it was in his description as preferrably the only dog in the home!

We already have him going right into his crate to sleep and in the morning before we leave, and he is always waiting for my return from school. He doesn’t have to wait long though! As of now he is only waiting 3-4 hours a day, which is already helping him know that I’m always going to return for him. Dexter is truely an amazing and lovable dog with great self control and amazing potential!
