Dean is a super cute, friendly and active 8 year old American Terrier Mix. Dean is available through a third-party adoption: his current owner has to move out of the country and if he went with her would have to endure more stress than he could handle. This big guy is smart, playful, housetrained and kennel trained. He has routines that are established and his owner knows just what it takes to make him happy. Dean struggles with some separation anxiety; he’ll just want to be where you are. Dean has lived with other dogs (cats arent his thing) and does best with larger, female dogs – alpha-male personalities are tough for him. He likes to play rough, chew and play tug with soft toys and loves the water. He may have lots of fun-loving energy, but when he is chill he is SO chill. Relaxing in the living room or crawling into bed with you – Dean luxuriates in snuggle time. Dean needs a stable and loving home with present and engaged owners. If this big lug looks like the man for you, don’t hesitate to reach out!
