The popular television series Dexter is about a serial killer. But this Dexter has no evil side. The worst thing he might do is eat your cereal, and that would only make him a cereal killer! Dexter is a one to two-year-old Pit Bull-Australian Cattle Dog mix. He was picked up as a thin stray on December 18th, and taken to the Wythe County Dog Shelter in Virginia. No one came to reclaim him and his time was running out.
Kathryn Haddock, a Wythe County Dog Shelter advocate, asked for our help for Dexter on December 26th (he was known as Cupid at the shelter). We agreed to provide an offer to assist with Dexter’s vetting costs as an incentive for a rescue to take him. With his time up, the Wythe County Humane Society pulled Dexter on December 30th. He received his initial vetting on December 30th and 31st.
The New Year brought a rescue commitment for Dexter from Forever Home Animal Rescue in Virginia. He made his way to the rescue on January 3rd. The rescue tells us that Dexter is such a chill guy! He gets along with other dogs. Most of all, Dexter would just love some TLC! Click here to view more photos of Dexter.
RADAR paid all of Dexter’s initial vetting costs, which totaled $173
