an adoption story: meet dexter.

Dexter’s story written by his mom Jackie: “If our dog had a doppelgänger, it would be the Dingo. As the proud owners of a pound puppy, my husband and I constantly get asked, “What kind of dog is that?” The simple answer is: We have no idea. The long answer is our dog is a little bit of everything. He loves like a Labrador Retriever, is smart like a Jack Russell Terrier, can be sporty like an Irish Setter, and he can heard our nieces and nephews like a Boarder Collie. Our dog is our running buddy, confidant, and all-around companion. None of this would have been possible had he not been dropped off at the Town Lake Animal Shelter in Austin, Texas. My husband and I were foster parents for our dog and his brother for a few months while they grew strong and received their shots. When we were asked if we wanted to keep one of the dogs it was easy to say “yes!” We had fallen in love with Dexter, the little blonde floppy-eared puppy. Little did we know he would grow up to be a red dog with giant ears that howls at fire trucks. So, what kind of dog do we have? We have a Dexter.”
