Meet Beautiful Baxter. Baxter was born around 7-18-2016 is our best guess. and he weighed 24.6 pounds when he was at the vet on 10-24. Although size and age are just a guess, we believe he will grow to be in a large size dog as an adult. Baxter and his sibling Bandit were found as strays in Kentucky. We have no idea who mom or dad were. They were covered in fleas when they arrived on 10-1-2016, which are all gone now. Breed is just a guess, we think he may be Great Pyrenees/Collie mix, but there is no certainty.
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 very young children, and we feel he would be best in a home with children 6+. We aren't sure how he would do with all of the hustle and bustle that goes with small children and if that will scare him. He can be a little aloof/shy at times, and is pretty calm as far as puppies go....well for now. His favorite time of day is treat time. He is very food motivated, which will making training easier. He's always happy and his tail is forever wagging as is his brother. Very happy with tail wagging. He does very well at pottying outside but is taken outside every few hours. A physical fenced in yard is required to adopt this pup.
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 felines. Just ignores them. We haven't had him on a leash or collar so his new family will need to work with the puppy on leash training.
We feel he needs to be adopted into a home with another dog, or 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 http://angelsonwheels.org/canine-adoption-application/ 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 angelsonwheels.org 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:
Dewormed with panacur, repeated about 2 weeks later
Monthly Heartworm Preventative while in our care
Monthly Flea Prevenative while in our care
Up to date with DHPP puppy vaccination
Rabies Vaccination if over 4 months
This puppy is too young to be fixed. So you will receive a spay/neuter coupon to one of our participating vets to have that procedure done when old enough. There is fully refundable $100.00 spay/neuter deposit. We hold the check, and do not cash it. Once the puppy is fixed, you email us and we will void your check. The foster will explain that in more detail at the meet and greet.
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!
