    DEXTER Oh my gosh - have you EVER seen anybody cuter than me? Of course not! I am Dexter, an absolutely adorable little mixture of Shih tzu and Maltese ( or maybe poodle?), weighing about 15 lbs. Even though we aren't sure of 'my mix', we are sure that I'm just precious. They think I am about 5 years young. I was abandoned in a rural area and went to a home, hoping the people would welcome me. They couldn't keep me but they called a wonderful rescue group to help me. Boy, they came so quickly, scooped me up and it was 'magic!' I was fed by my former owners but unfortunately, that was all they did. They kept me outdoors all of the time and ... (Read More)never groomed me, so my long fur was horribly matted, covered with fleas and dirt. I was allergic to the flea bites and had chewed my backside until it was raw. Boy - after they shaved me, I felt so free without that huge, heavy fur coat, that made even moving hard. I was 'free' but I needed medication for the awful pain from itching! But look at me now! Mom says that when my fur grows back, it will be long, soft and so pretty! I'm adorable and as happy as I can be! My foster mom says I am SO sweet and I have the nicest manners... I listen to everything she says and I then do it! I'm really good at walking on a leash and I love chasing balls. I get along with her other dogs but I really prefer being with people and sitting on laps. My dream is that I get to sit on your lap, be loved and cuddled all day long! Mom says I will be a very loving and loyal companion - so, so sweet and so, so good. I'll bet you are already making room for me - little Dexter, the little love bug! Pls email Jackie at: (Less)
