When we told photographer Jon that the next dog to arrive on the doggy photoshoot was a Boxer, he was a little nervous! The limited space in the studio paired with expensive equipment and the breed’s rather rambunctious reputation seemed likely to spell a recipe for disaster….

It couldn’t have been further from the truth as Dexter’s mellow and slightly lazy nature meant he was a dream to photograph and his sweet and gentle temperament won the hearts of the whole Hotter team.

Leanne, partner Michael and daughter Caro Rose enjoy fun walks with Dexter.

He loves to play with Leanne’s daughter Caro Rose who would say his favourite game is when she bakes cakes for him. Although Leanne is not convinced as he always looks a little fed up! The pair are inseparable and Dexter is very protective of his favourite playmate. Like most dogs, Dexter loves his ball and his favourite toy in the world is Ted.
