Winter is very sweet!

RatTerrier girl

Winter is a happy, loving little girl looking for a new home! Her family adopted her a couple of years ago at an adoption event(not from Dexter). When they saw her, they were immediately charmed by her cute personality and adopted her on the spot. Unfortunately, they really didn't need another dog and it has been too overwhelming for them. They have several other dogs and kids and Winter gets along well with all of them. The family just needs to downsize. We took Winter to our vet for a thorough exam, full vaccinations, and a microchip. She is spayed and perfectly healthy. Winter is only 5 yrs old and full of life. She is very smart and eager to please. She adores people, loves to follow you from room to room and is friendly to everyone she meets. Winter is a fantastic little dog and will make a wonderful addition to any home. We'd love for her to go to a home where she isn't left alone all day, as she is used to having someone around, either people or other dogs. If you live in the Southern California area and would like to meet Winter, please complete our adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com Adoption donation $150.

Foster Homes Needed

So many dogs are finding their way into shelters. Sadly, due to overcrowding, many never make it out. We can only save as many dogs as we have available foster homes. Can you save a dog's life by giving it a warm, loving home for a few days or weeks? We pay all of the dog's expenses. Your kindness will be repaid with lots of love and affection! As a foster parent, you will NOT be required to bring the dog to weekly adoption events. We want fostering to be easy and rewarding! Every new foster home is a dog's life saved!

The Adoption Process

First and foremost, complete the application here.
We then schedule a quick and easy home check. We are only adopting out to the Southern California area. We save new dogs each week, so we often have dogs that we have yet to post online.
