Hi, I’m Rex and I love to spend quality time with humans as much as possible! I would benefit from a home where I can be given lots of attention and a big back yard where I can have lots of room to run and play fetch.
I am a large, strong boy and would need a home where I have plenty of space to play and stretch out. I would do best in a home where I am the center of attention and can accompany my family on their adventures.
I have allergies that require a special diet and daily medication to keep my skin under control – I am currently on hills science diet Z/D and it is imperative that I stick to this diet and my daily medication routine in my new home.
I cannot wait to meet my forever family!
