What should the next family should know about Baxter: He is an amazing boy to have in your home. He is very loyal & loving to his family. He has good manners, Sit, Lay down, Shake. He loves his relaxation time. He likes to sleep with people & pretend he is a lapdog when you are on the couch but he is pretty hairy so having his own bed or chair with a sheet frequently washed or vacuumed is a must! My hope for him is to get more exercise & to live with someone who understands that he has some behavioral issues outside of the home but he is still a great dog inside the home. I would also greatly appreciate receiving photos or videos of Baxter in his new home environment and updates for the rest of his life. I want to stay in contact because we do love him so much.
