Baxter is an adorable Pit/Boxer mix, perhaps Lab/Pit mix. Baxter is about a year and a half old and is a goofy big ole puppy.
He is a happy go lucky sort of boy, but can be protective of his people. He still has a lot of his puppy energy and still needs to learn a few manners. We think he'd be great with kid but because of his energy level, and lack of manners... we think he'd do best in a home without smaller children because he likely would bowl them over with his enthusiastic greetings.
Baxter does like some other dogs but not all dogs. He would do best with a female companion who has a rough and rowdy playstyle like he does. He may be a bit overwhelming to an older dog with his desire to play but would be great with another young playful dog.
If you are interested in giving this beautiful boy a home of his very own, please complete our online adoption application which can be found at kcpaws.petfinder.com or contact us by email with any questions you may have.
