Hi, I’m Baxter. I came into rescue with my brother Tucker. When we were 7 months old we ingested shot gun pellets and had to have emergency surgery. Clearly we liked getting into trouble. We lived in a condo and were crate trained, but we did bark a lot.
My foster mother has worked very hard with me and I have passed the basic obedience class. I get along great with my foster brothers and sisters. I love to play and I still bark at squirrels when I see them outside. I do have to protect the yard! I'm still a little shy, but I have made a lot of progress. I enjoy going for walks, riding in cars, and meeting other people and dogs. I was a little skinny when I came to rescue, but I've learned to enjoy my food. I eat slowly, but finish every drop.
I'd prefer a home with a big fenced yard and another dog to play with, preferable one bigger than me. But I also like going for walks, so you'd need to promise I'd get lots of exercise every day.
I’m in the mid Atlantic, so you must live in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware or Dc to adopt me.
