|Rescue Me ID: 14-10-21-00561Baxter (male)|
Baxter was rescued from the Bridgeport Animal Shelter after being picked up as a stray. Poor baby was (is) in bad shape. We gave him a 10 day stay at a local vet, treating him for ALL that ails him. We shaved him down, provided medicine and dips, brought him up to date on shots, cleaned his ears, did a blood and fecal test and had him neutered. Baxter is not ready for the spotlight, but now he needs time to heal with lots of TLC. We are hoping a kind compassionate family will see through the booboo's on his face and bond with him while he's on the mend. We know he will be a gorgeous boy in the end. He weighs 33 lbs but needs to gain a little weight. The Vet believes he is about 2 1/2 years old. Baxter is super sweet and affectionate. He loves to give kisses and gets along with the resident dog. He's playful and curious and loves to be with people most of all. Baxter is always up for a car ride and will be a wonderful companion. Being alone in a cage for the past month, he craves companionship and attention so someone who goes to work all day will not be a good fit for him. He'll be a great family dog. Here's your mission: Baxter is work in progress, a diamond in the ruff. He needs lots of TLC and some behavior training, ie, he jumps on furniture, counter surfs and has a hard time when you leave. Currently Baxter cannot be crated or confined at all or he cries and barks. He will chase cats. These are trainable behaviors for the family that really has the time and energy to do so. We don't make any guarantees about his breed, but we do believe he will be an awesome dog once someone teaches him the ropes. He is super smart and catches on quickly.Baxter is 90% house broken. Baxter is ready to have the life any cute and adorable pup should have, will that be with you? We know his person is out there!! If you want to adopt Baxter, please copy and paste this link to fill out our online application, http://members.petfinder.com/~CT243/sampleform.html. We cannot be certain what his true mix is. Baxter's adoption fee is a $500 donation towards his medical bills. COME MEET HIM IN WESTPORT, CT. (Less)
