Facts about Baxter

  • Breed: Akbash
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 217200
How I arrived: I was brought in by a my previous owner on July 15, 2016 because I was not a good fit for their home.

At SDHS: I am a handsome boy, who is true to the Akbash breed (primarily used as a livestock guardian dog). I'm a laid-back gentleman, but will need daily exercise to keep me from becoming bored and looking for activity outside my property. If there are children in my new home, they must be older and respectful due to my size and breed traits. I need to be the only animal living inside the home. I walk well on a leash and happily stroll along at my own pace and I'm potty-trained too! I've lived around horses and goats and would love a ranch of my own!

Why I am the one for you: My Personality Color Code is Purple; meaning I'm Happy - Go - Lucky...Carefree...Engaging...Adaptive...and Cheerful!

Primary Color: White
Weight: 95
