Paxton, a man of mystery, a red and white Holstein cow in a former life, a stray dog found in Carmel, in early May.

This handsome fellow is about 3-years-old, already neutered, and housebroken, who arrived emaciated, limping, with hair loss and scrapes. He has gained some weight since he has been getting 3 meals a day, so now he weighs about 55-pounds. This fellow is very much an overgrown puppy. We have no idea who had Paxton during his first years of life, but they did not provide the basic obedience training all young dogs need. Therefore, even though Paxton loves people and is a sociable dog, he needs to learn polite manners. For example, he must learn to play gently with toys around people's hands. He is mouthy with the person interacting with him much like a young puppy. He does not try to guard his toys or food, he just does not know how to play without using his mouth to direct traffic!

He is very enthusiastic when it comes to playing games. Paxton is a high energy dog but because he loves to play or go for walks he can release that energy with daily activities. Because of his strength and energy level, Paxton will need a home with older kids who can handle him without being knocked over! At HSHC, we call dogs like Paxton Busy Bees!
He is a naturally playful, curious, and trusting canine. Take him for a big walk every day. Give him something to do, like treat puzzles, or obedience classes to keep his brain stimulated. After his job is done, he'll curl up in front of the TV with you. He likes Animal Planet. 6/19/17
