Dexter

Sex: Male

Breed: Terrier x

Estimated Birth Date: 10/4/2013


Distemper is an ugly disease and so many dogs have lost their lives in both rescues and shelters due to the outbreak we had locally. But Dexter has beaten the odds! After fighting this awful illness for 150 days Dexter has officially fully recovered!

We won’t lie there were so many days we didn’t think this guy would make it but his fighting spirit pulled through and just look at him now! He’s healthy, he’s put on weight and the sparkle is back in his eyes.


He’s also now officially adoption ready and actively searching for his perfect forever home. Dexter is beyond sweet and would fit into almost any home environment. He enjoys other dogs and doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. If you’re looking for the sweetest most distinguished middle age pup then Dexter is the boy for you!


  • Each adoptable pet will be introduced on Facebook

  • Each pet will have its own profile here on the website

  • All pets will be spayed or neutered

  • All pets will be micro-chipped and shots will be up-to-date

  • Each pet has their own application to complete—make sure you use the right one (linked from their bio)

It’s important to us that each pet goes not just to a great home but to the “right” home. Our foster parents work with each pet to get to know them and their needs.


We try hard to list all of the pertinent info about each pet on the site so you can choose the pet that will fit with your family/lifestyle. If you don’t see a specific pet on the site, he/she is not ready for adoption. Please be patient and wait until the bio is listed. We don’t decide on a “first come, first served” basis but rather on a “who’s the very best fit.” So, don’t panic.


It’s not a quick process. We receive dozens of applications for each pet so please be patient. If you’re shortlisted you’ll be contacted as soon as possible.


If selected to meet one of our pets and you currently have pets, you’ll be asked to do an in-person pet intro; we don’t do the long-distance adoption thing. If you live out of town, plan a fun road trip to meet the pet in person.


Don’t be discouraged if your application is not selected. Remember, we get a lot of them! Trust us, the best fit for you is coming.


If you’re lucky and you do adopt a super amazing pet from Marley’s Mutts, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to us for training, medication, or behavior questions. We’re here for you, and your pet.
