Little bit about Baxter

Hi there,

My name is Baxter and I am a fun loving guy finally on the look out for my forever home! Could that be with you?

I know how to ‘sit’ ,’down’ and ‘stay’ and if you have treats with you I can also walk amazing on the lead! I also don’t mind a game of fetch either! I also know how to ‘touch’ so if you put your hand out and say ‘touch’ I will bop your hand with my nose for a treat!

I would love a family who could be patient with me but will also include me in their every day activities. I love going for a walk whether that be around the neighbourhood, on a big hike or just a casual stroll. Then we can hang around in the garden at home together or inside!

Sometimes people think that the best way to calm a dog down is lots of exercise or lots of running and walking. I actually become more calm if you teach me things I love to learn so practicing my cues like ‘sit’ ‘down’ and ‘stay’ is super calming as well as giving me something yummy to keep me chewing and occupied.

I have met some dogs here at the shelter and I am a bit inappropriate and don’t know how to interact with them correctly. So I must be an only dog for now but if you have friends who have dogs we can go for walks together! I would not be suited to a dog park or dog beach though :(.

If I sound like the guy for you please email or call 0477 064 192 to make an appointment.
