Adoptable Dog of the Week - Dex

This goofy blue-eyed boy will make someone so happy! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Dex, an almost 4 years old Siberian Husky mix from Des Moines, Iowa. He is neutered, current on his vaccines, and will be microchipped prior to adoption. Dex is sweet but a bit rowdy, so he might do best as an only pet in a family with adults or children in their teen years.

Dex’s Tale

If you’ve always wanted a silly dog that loves to play and adores being by your side, Dex is your guy. This lovely pooch is happiest when playing with his toys or hanging around his humans, and will be the perfect companion for all of your adventures. He can be a bit shy at first, but as soon as he warms up to you, he’s a real cuddle bug.

Due to his husky genes, Dex can be a bit vocal at times, so he might not be the best roommate if you live in an apartment – a home with a fenced yard would be ideal for him. Also, as he tends to grow very close to his people, Dex would need an experienced adopter that could manage his separation anxiety issues – or even better, someone that works from home and would be around to keep Dex occupied and at ease.

Even though a friendly guy, Dex can play rough with other dogs, so it’s best he meets his potential fur siblings or goes to a home where he would be an only pet. He’s not too enthusiastic about cats, though, so it’s best if there are no felines in his new family. As for kids, young children can be a bit too much for Dex, so he’d do best in an adult-only home or with a family with teenage or older kids.

If you’ve fallen head over heels for those dreamy blue eyes, contact Animal Rescue League of Iowa Inc. for more information.
