Dexter is still young (15 months) so he may change but right now If he knows you, look out for slobbery kisses. If I let a stranger in the house he will smell them and bring a toy if he likes them, other wise he will go on his merry way back to what he was doing before the visitor came. In public If he doesn't know you, he will sniff you and then leave. Some strangers he will stay close to and actively nose them if they encourage it and let them pet him. Others he could care less about and will let them pet him but he will have the most bored look on his face.
Most strangers are not afraid of him and will put their hands out to pet him at the dog park/beach but usually he will just ignore them continue around them to where he was going. He has only barked at 3 people, one of those he actively chased on a skateboard after the guy knocked my daughter down. He doesn't have a preference over women or men.
