Facts about Baxter

  • Breed: Border Collie/St. Bernard Mix
  • Color: White - With Brown Or Chocolate
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Meet Beautiful Baxter. Baxter was born around 7-18-2016 is our best guess. and he weighed 43 pounds on 1-8-2017. Although size and age are just a guess, we believe he will grow to be in a large size dog as an adult. We have no idea who mom or dad were. Breed is just a guess, we think he may be a Border Collie/St. Bernard mix, but won't get as big as a St. Bernard. You can see in the one photo he loves kids, and he is accepting donations for Angels on Wheels.

Baxter is a super sweet puppy, and very friendly. He absolutely loves other dogs, and people. He will great you in the morning with wagging tails and kisses. He hasn't been around young children, and as long as the kids are ok with a large puppy who can be jumpy we think he would enjoy running around and playing with children. We do feel a home with children 5+ are best so that he doesn't knock anyone over. His favorite time of day is treat time and his bones. He is very food motivated, which will making training easier. He's always happy and his tail is forever wagging. He does very well at pottying outside but is taken outside every few hours. He hasn't had an accident in his foster home in a long time, but we don't want to say he is housetrained as we don't know how he would do on carpeting.

He is not crate trained, but gated in the kitchen are of the foster. If you plan on crating, please be sure to do your research because crating is a process and not something that happens overnight. He is totally fine with dog friendly felines. Just ignores them. He is doing much better on a leash and collar, but will need further training. He walks slowly right now as he isn't that familiar with it. A physical fenced in backyard is required to adopt this pup.

We feel he needs to be adopted into a home with someone who is home during the day. Puppies need a family who will have time to continue with house training and socialization. Keeping a puppy crated all day while your at work is not good for a puppy, and it wouldn't work for this puppy given he has displayed minor anxiety when left alone with no other dogs or people.

This pup is being fostered in a South Naperville, IL home, with his brother which is where you and your family would go to meet her. All family members, including 4-legged, must be present at the meet and greet to adopt. In order to schedule a meet and greet, please submit and adoption application which can be found on-line at Once we receive the application we will process. It does take some time, so please be patient. Thank you. For additional information about our adoption process, please go to our website at and click on the "adoptable" tab.

Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but is required prior to making arrangements for a meet and greet as all of our animals are cared for in homes. We can't schedule meet and greets until the application is submitted and approved. We don't have a building so there are no viewing hours. All of our animals are cared for in foster homes by wonderful families who volunteer their time to save these precious souls. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The adoption fee of $350.00 includes:
Neutering which is now done
Dewormed with panacur, repeated about 2 weeks later
Given Albon
Monthly Heartworm Preventative while in our care during season
Monthly Flea Prevenative while in our care during season
He's had all three of his DHPP puppy vaccinations
Rabies Vaccination

You will also receive a free health exam visit to either Crest Hill Cat and Dog Clinic, Yorkville Animal Hospital, Midwest Animal Hospital in Orland Park, Springbrook Animal Hospital,Countryside Animal Clinic of Carol Streatm or Naperville Animal Hospital.

Although we make the best guess on the breed and size of our dogs, because they come from shelters or are strays, we can never be completely certain of the genetic makeup of the dog. Breed and weight at maturity are only guesses. All we can tell you for sure is that they are 100% RESCUED! If an animal is still posted for adoption, he/she is still available. If you see this this post, this puppy is available for adoption so there is no need to email asking about availability.

Thank you for looking at our rescued animals!

About Angels On Wheels Animal Rescue NFP

About Our Rescue Group...


Please go to our website at, and click on the fostering tab for more information about fostering

Angels on Wheels Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3), non-for-profit, state licensed organization. We are composed of animal-loving volunteers that work vigorously to make a difference in the lives of abandoned animals. We are dedicated to finding and saving neglected and unwanted animals from high kill shelters on death row to give them a second chance for life.

Our purpose is to keep these babies out of already crowded Animal Control Facilities, to provide them with proper medical treatment and then wonderful homes. If you need assistance with Spaying and Neutering your animals, please contact us.

We can't save these babies without your help. Please consider fostering, helping with transporting animals, volunteering by feeding and watering the kittens at Petco, helping with adoption days or donating; either monetary, old pet carriers, blankets, food, newspaper, paper towels, toys, the list is endless. Most importantly please, please spay and neuter all of your pets. It takes two to have a litter.

We may not be able to change change the world, but together, we can change the world for some.

Thank you for viewing our animals, considering adoption instead of buying and for your generousity.

Our Adoption Process...

An Application is required prior to meeting any of our rescues. The application can be found at www.angels The adoption fee includes age appropriate vaccinations, microchip, rabies if over 4 months, deworming with Panacur, treated with frontline plus or Revolution, spaying or neutering, Fe/LV/FIV testing for felines, 4dx test for dogs which test for Heartworm, Lyme Disease, Anaplasmosis, and Uhrlichia age appropriate, and any other medical treatment when needed. Most of our animals come from high kill shelters and more often then not require some kind antibiotics. A spay and neuter voucher and contract is required for all adoptive families for those puppies and kittens to young for spay/neuter prior to adoption. Please see our website for more information about the adoption process.

Every day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are also born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all of the animals. As a result, millions of healthy, loving cats, dogs, kittens and puppies face early deaths as a form of animal control. Others are left to fend for themselves against automobiles, the elements, other animal and cruel humans. You can help just by spaying and neutering your pets, don't ever buy from a pet store, as almost every one of them uses some form of a pupy mill, and remind people to support and ADOPT from a shelter or rescue. Thank you.
