Do you like to take walks??? Well, this guy is the perfect companion for you! He walks very well on leash and truly enjoys his strolls! This handsome fellow also loves to play and have fun! He enjoys a good game of fetch in the yard as well as relaxing on a lounge chair soaking up the sun. Baxter likes other pups as long as they are friendly and allow him to take the lead. Baxter enjoys lots of cuddle time and adores being petted and loved. He is house trained and knows his basic commands.

Upon first introduction, Baxter may be shy. He needs a moment to learn that you are a friend. He has been patiently waiting for his forever person or family to take him home. He wants what every pup wants: a safe home where he will be loved. This handsome guy loves his people so much that he can be protective of them as well as his home.

He would do very well in a peaceful, quiet, dog savvy adults only household. He really is a nice little guy who needs a patient and kind family.
