Facts about Baxter

  • Breed: Shiba Inu/Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: White - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: G17-018
Baxter weighs just under 18 pounds and is a young adult in the 2 to 5 year range. He is a sweet boy but rather shy and serious. When his foster mom is home, he is usually close by and enjoys being a lap dog when invited. Baxter likes his walks and is very well behaved on leash. He is working up to longer walks as to start he didn't have the stamina for walking much longer than 20 minutes. He is a very quiet dog. He is a very quiet dog and not too active. We sent in a DNA test for Baxter and his dominant breeds are Chihuahua, Shiba Inu, and Shih Tzu. He has a short, thick, soft fur. Baxter is mostly house trained but had a few accidents his first week in his foster home, this might happen in his forever home as he gets used to a new schedule.

Baxter would like a quiet home with adults; children if any should be older. As he settles he comes more and more out of his shell and he truly is a special boy. He gets along with the dogs in his home but doesn't seem to need the companionship and he does love the attention from his people, so probably being an only dog is best for Baxter. Please apply if you would like to meet this adorable fellow!

Grateful Dogs Rescue incurs substantial medical and other costs in rescuing our dogs. In order to recoup some of these costs, we must charge an adoption fee. The adoption fee for Baxter is $250.

If you are interested in adopting Baxter, please complete our online adoption application at http://www.gratefuldogsrescue.org/adoption-process.html. One of our volunteers will get back to you. Adoptions are local, confined to the SF Bay Area.

About Grateful Dogs Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Grateful Dogs Rescue was founded in 1990; its mission is to rescue dogs not made available for adoption at San Francisco Animal Care and Control and other local shelters through no fault of their own. Rather than letting these dogs be euthanized, Grateful Dogs saves as many as possible by fostering these dogs until a loving home is found.

Grateful Dogs Rescue is always in need of new foster homes!  You can make a difference by fostering. The number of dogs we can save is dependent on having foster parents to care for them until they find their forever homes.

Our Adoption Process...

The Grateful Dogs Rescue adoption procedure is designed to find a good match between the dog and adopter. Our goal is a happy human and happy dog in a "forever home." The adoption procedure includes an application, interview, home inspection, and an adoption fee. The adoption fee helps to cover spay/neuter, shots and other medical care given before the dog is made available for adoption.
