My name is Baxter, and the dog in the photo with me is my BFF, Fiona. We are a bonded pair and we are looking for a forever home together. I am an 8-year-old Jack Russell terrier mix who weighs 22 lbs, and Fiona is a petite 9-year-old lab mix who weighs 38 lbs. We love playing and exploring together, and we definitely don’t act like seniors—we have a kick to our step and are very playful. I LOVE squeaky toys and chasing Fiona in the yard. Fiona likes it when I chase her, and she also likes to chase me sometimes! We are quite silly together!
We were surrendered by our previous owner when someone in the house was allergic to us. I have been friendly towards all known humans and known dogs. I don’t know that I’ve ever really encountered a cat. Oh, and between you and me, I admittedly like to chase squirrels. But we’ve never really met a dog that didn’t do that—those squirrelly things can really tease a dog!!!
In my previous home, I lived for five years as an indoor/outdoor dog—mostly indoors though! I was left alone free in the house for 4-8 hours a day, and I am reportedly housetrained! And I know how to "sit!" They say Fiona and I are perfect together—won’t you come see for yourself?
