Name: Palmer DOB: 6/14/2014 Weight: 40 Adoption Fee: $350  Hi my name is Palmer but I answer to Dexter!   I'm available through the foster to adopt program.. check out more info in my photos!   I am an almost six year old cattle dog/heeler mix and I weigh about 40 lbs.   If you look closely you can see that my face looks a little crooked. This is because I was hit by a car as a young pup. This has completely healed and doesn't slow me down any.   My absolute favorite thing to do is just be lazy and lay on the couch with my people. My current house has a fenced in yard and that is plenty of exercise for my energy level.  I do not go on walks currently so may need some help in the leash department.  While I currently live with a fur sibling  I would do best as an only pup.  It is possible with training and slow intros I could coexist with another pup however.  I also live with young children in my current home and do very well with them too!  I really just love my people and want a family who like to lounge around as much as me.  I am crate trained but I can also be trusted to my own devices if needing to be left alone.   An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal. Once we receive your application, a placement coordinator will be in contact with you as soon as possible. Please check out our website, for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals!
