Now that all the little rules to adopt are out of the way, I believe it is my turn to talk. Boy, do I have a lot to say. My name is Baxter and sit right down and read all this info because it is VERY IMPORTANT. I started my Journey at the Trumbull County Dog Pound a few months ago. I found myself roaming the streets with no where to go and next thing you know this guy picked me up and I thought...thank GOD. Well sadly, I was counting my blessings too soon because he was taking me back to the POUND! Not just any pound, but a very small, very croweded, pound. Upon my arrival I was TERRIFIED. I was hiding and would not go to anyone so the warden said my days were numbered! Within a few days the volunteers worked with me and got me to come to them more and more and then after a couple days a family came and adopted me! I was soooo happy once again. They were loving on me and caring for me even the "old" lady in the house. As I became more active and happy, true to my "puppyhood" I was playing and running and would greet everyone when they came home. Well one day, I greeted the old lady like I greet everyone and when I popped up to give her a kiss, she lost her balance and fell down. Well that was it!!! Everyone made a big deal and said "I had to go". I got excited again thinking I was going for a ride bye byes, which I like to do....BUT NOPE I WAS BACK AT THE POUND! I was TERRIFIED AGAIN. I could not believe it. I had been doing so good with my pottying. I was loving everyone and being kind and other than being excited to see people when they had gone away and came back I was gentle! So there I was in a cage again on death row. Yes, they call it death row, because that pound does have to kill dogs for space. There just isnt enough room. So the volunteers once again got me out of the cage and loved on me and then right AWAY a family came in and adopted me! They had kids, I was so excited. I played with them. Loved on them and within a few days we were best friends...OR SO I THOUGHT. APPARENTLY, I made the daughter itchy. So itchy that they brought me BACK TO THE POUND AGAIN. Well enough was enough. The POUND was FULL. BEYOND FULL. The warden considered me "an owner turn in" and since there is no hold time on OWNER TURN INS...welll I was being put down. The volunteers cried, called rescue, and this AMAZING TEAM OF PEOPLE all worked together to get me to safety. WHEW.....QUITE THE STORY RIGHT??? So here I am now in the lap of luxury. My foster parents walk me, take me out, love on me, and well after a couple of days of seeing how wonderful they are...I relaxed, and am now my happy go lucky self. You see, it does take me a couple days to trust you humans now BUT WHO COULD BLAME ME? I am not mean or anything, just scared and a litty shy...NO BIG DEAL. After a day or two we are best friends. I AM A WORLD CLASS SNUGGLER. I love to lay across your lap and be as close to you as possible. I love to play and tear it up in the yard with other dogs. I understand where I am supposed to potty and barring some accidents as long as you are consistent we will do great there too! So the reason for telling you ALL OF THIS is because the next home I have WILL BE MY LAST. You will have to demonstrate that YOU are committed to a lifetime. YES, that is the goal for all dogs, but if there is any doubt at all in anyones mind then well do not EVEN read anymore. STOP right here. IF you are committed to forever. If you are able to promise forever AND MEAN IT. Then you better get on and fill out that app because I am so ready for a family that will never ever let me down. See you soon, Baxter. www.cthar.org for an application to adopt.
