BAXTER's Story...
BAXTER
(named after cowboy poet Baxter Black)

He came into the
world on a bright August day with a whimper and then a cry

For a while there it looked like whining would be his modus operandi

But once he was certain his mom wouldn’t stray, and milk kept his tummy plump—hunger
at bay

The cattle pup’s worries subsided.

His brother’s more outgoing
ways overshadowed his studious tendencies

Unusual noises or human arrivals revealed sound sensitive dependencies

But now it’s October and boldly he goes, roughhousing or using his scent-sitive
nose

Still, he always knows where home is.

Come dinner or sleep
time he now looks to people for grub and a soft place to lie

His mom taught him well to be friendly and loving to all who might come by

Companion and playmate will be his forté with devotion that lasts to his very
last day

He’s all set to be someone’s prize!

Baxter was born on August 7, 2014. His mom is a purebred Australian Cattle Dog. The other half is unknown, although, there are indications that he may be part Border Collie. He’s intelligent, sensitive, exceptionally affectionate, loves to snuggle, needs to be an important part of his family indoors and out. Because of his strong ACD heritage he will need a lot of exercise, preferably with purpose (a job), along with activities that help him live up to his potential. He loves other animals and will do great with any that understand and enjoy his rough and tumble play style.

Baxter's adoption fee is $150. This includes vaccinations, microchip, collar and ID tag. At time of adoption you will be asked sign a neuter contract agreeing to have Baxter neutered between 6 and 9 months of age. As soon as proof of neuter is provided to IDAWG, you will receive $100 of your adoption fee back.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BAXTER, a Nampa Australian Cattle Dog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Nampa, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog puppy from a breeder in Nampa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Nampa already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Nampa breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Cattle Dog breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Nampa paves the way for another one to be saved.
