Paxton's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Paxton's Story...
Paxton looks like a yorkshire terrier mix. He is approx 2 yrs old and 25 lbs. He is a beautiful dog and has a really striking coat. He is a little nervous when first meeting new people and will bark and then very quickly, he is your best friend!!! He gets along with all of the other dogs, loves to run and play, does well on a leash but does pull a bit and could do with some more leash training. He loves to ride in the car and will jump right up into the back street. He is pretty well house trained and runs out to the yard with the other dogs. He would do well with or without buddy. Because he can be a little nervous at firs meeting we feel he would do best with an older or adult family only. He did not like the vet!

The total adoption donation of $525 and includes the required interstate health certificate and transport , spay/neuter, shots including rabies, bordatella, parvo, lepto, distemper and canine influenza, and micro chip with a lifetime pre paid registration. The total amount is payable to Shaggy Dog Rescue which is a 501c3. Some of our dogs are still in Texas in foster care. The application is online at http://houstonshaggydogrescue.org/application-process/

Just as a note, if you are in Massachusetts and are adopting directly from Texas rather than from a local foster, there are new quarantine laws in effect. All rescues must be quarantined 48 hours at a state run facility, and in addition, a second interstate health certificate is required to be issued by a Massachusetts vet. This new law may add an additional cost.
