Who doesn't LOVE puppies? Meet Dexter, a 11 week old Golden Doodle puppy who likes to run around your feet, nip you with his little baby needle teeth, get into things he's not supposed to and challenge you with the tedious task of potty training. But if he is monitored, trained and taught right from wrong, he will make a wonderful, faithful companion for many years to come!
Well, it's been over four weeks since Dexter came to live with us. He has a big personality to go with his big feet and big heart. He likes to crawl under my bed at night and sleeps there, through the night unless I get up. Sometimes he gets up to see what I am doing, sometimes not.
He plays hard and sleeps hard, and we are still working on potty training. He is coming along, but he is a typical puppy and will need a family that will continue to work with him. When he finds his forever home, he will have to get used to the 'outside' routine there as well! We are working on using a bell and he seems to be catching on (had to figure out what the heck it was!).
He does fine in his crate, he doesn't really like it, but will settle down once he realizes it is time to sleep or FM is going where she can't take him. He rides really good in the car, sits in the back seat like he belongs, or lays down to nap.
He takes treats nicely and is learning 'no bite' so his puppy nips turn into very gentle knaws....and he has already learned to sit, shake (learning other paw), and we are working on come and stay. We are working on short walks with the leash, he does good for short periods of time.
Dexter is at the vet today, having his neuter procedure so he will be ready for his forever home in no time!
Here are a couple of pictures of Dex - loves car rides, especially if he has a comfortable place to sit.....and isn't a fan of balls bigger than he is!
