Sweet, goofy black lab needs a home

Dexter was one of a litter of seven, rescued from a high-kill shelter where he was running out of time. His guardian angels were a woman, her three kids, a dog and several cats. But soon, with the help of the South Euclid Humane Society, this sweet boy will have to start fresh.

It's not his fault - it's just that he has a tendency to guard valuable objects, such as special toys and bones, which makes him a better fit for a home without small children. His trainer finds this behavior totally addressable; it'll just take a calmer home with less hustle and bustle, his foster mom thinks.

Dexter is a 2-year-old, 50-pound black lab mix. He has been neutered and has all his shots. He is crate-trained, affectionate, cuddly and loves tummy rubs and being around people. He is also playful and energetic, needing lots of walks and exercise. (He would play ball all day if he could!)

As long as his special toys, bones and food are kept separate, Dexter is great with other dogs and cats. He is also very smart, a quick and easy learner, and a great foot-warmer; he sleeps at his foster-mom's feet all night long.

An adoption fee and home visit are required before adoption. Anyone interested in Dexter should call Kelli at 216-526-8603.
