Baxter is a typical hound dog – wants to chase cats, squirrels and other small animals. This behavior can make walking Baxter a little challenging, but with patience and training Baxter can learn good leash manners. In his last home, Baxter was potty trained, but did not like being crated at all. Baxter is a very sweet dog, very friendly, loves people, dogs and children. Baxter's ideal environment would have a fenced in backyard and a companion dog for Baxter to play with because he absolutely LOVES the company of other dogs.  Do you think you might like to get to know this adorable pup?  Give him a chance and schedule a visit to see if you two are the perfect match.

Baxter weighs 55 lbs. and his estimated birthdate is 1/24/2014. His adoption fee is $275 [senior citizens (age 62 and older) and military personnel receive a 15% discount on adoption fees].

Our volunteers work tirelessly on training, socializing, and giving the dogs all of the loving care that they so much deserve. Thanks to our friends and supporters, we have been able to save many lives in each of years. It is caring individuals like you who can make a difference in the lives of our wonderful orphan animals.
