More detail:2024-02-21: Meet Baxxter. He is a handsome boy that found himself into a bad situation at a high kill shelter. He was assessed there to be 5 years old; our vet however thinks he is closer to 2-3 years old. He is still very lean at 60lbs. He wants to run and fetch at the park (or any other activity). He is very social with dogs and people, excellent in the car and uses the doggy door like a champ. He would be OK with very dog savvy cats or no cats for him.
Baxxter came to us with untreated allergies in his ears and especially on his belly and he lost a lot of hair. His belly skin is black because of old allergies. With regular medicated baths, his hair is growing back slowly.
He was lucky to have a couple of private training classes. Baxxter is much better on the leash but will pull heavily is he sees another dog. A strong owner would work best for him.
He requires a good amount of running regularly, he learned and loves to fetch. He is a very sweet cuddler, gives kisses and loves the couch and your bed! He would do best with an active family, older children and ideally with another dog.
