Personal testimony about Baxter from his foster parent: Baxter gets along well with other dogs, and even tolerates cats. He is good with children, completely house broken, thrives in new environments (I’ve taken him multiple times to two of my client’s places of business) and he lives to please. My schedule changes frequently and Baxter has learned to occupy himself each morning until my alarm goes off – no matter what time that is after sunrise!
While Baxter would do well in a forever home with other dogs, he also enjoys being the center of attention and would thrive in any home where he is included, talked to and petted often. Baxter loves his toys, especially tough chew bones – he leaves my clothes, furniture, shoes, sandals and other “human” items alone. Baxter is willing to be crated but I don’t think he needs to be. The few times he has soloed in the home he has done absolutely fine.
Baxter is not a barker – except at my home where he does his job to let me know when there are people and things going on outside (that I, of course, should be aware of). Baxter is learning what is routine and what is not (like my neighbors going to work vs. the sales person coming to the door). I’ve seen a whole lot of love from this dog. If I was able to always have two dogs, I’d be adding Baxter to my family, but I can’t keep two dogs long term. Baxter is willing to learn and doing well with sit, stay, come and has learned ‘no’ so well that I think he actually tells me ‘no’ sometimes (yes, he talks and it is pretty funny). If you want a great addition to the family or simply a companion with playful energy Baxter is your guy. Baxter is being fostered by Ross in High Springs.
