This happy little dog is named in honor of Baxter Black, a cowboy/poet/veterinarian who can be heard reading his stories on NPR occasionally. Baxter was at a high-kill shelter, suffering from a broken back, when we found him five years ago. With time and expert treatment from our great vet - Rebecca Golatski - he is now able to run, jump, and play. The only residual effects of his injury (which was most likely abuse) are that he is incontinent and his rear legs sometimes splay out from under him if the footing is slippery. In spite of those small limitations, Baxter is a great little dog with a lot of heart. He will chase and return tennis balls for hours and loves to sit on your lap. Due to his incontinence, he lives in a newspaper-lined exercise pen. However, he is very happy to come out several times a day to play. If you are looking for a special dog who's full of love, contact us about Baxter Black. He is neutered, micro-chipped, and healthy. He is approximately 6 years old and should have many more healthy years ahead of him. There is no adoption donation required if we find the right placement for him. If not, Baxter will live out his life here with us.
