Baxter would do best with a home where he can get daily exercise and have some routine and structure, (which is good for most dogs). He LOVES to go on walks. No other dogs in the home. He is crate trained.

Baxter is caramel and white. He has short hair.

Other Information
Baxter is so difficult to re-home as we love him so much. We have 2 other dogs that were in our home prior to Baxter's arrival and he does not do well with them at all. There can not be another dog in the home. Occasionally in the evening he may get grumpy. We just give him his space. Most of the time he just wants to curl up next to you! He is a super great sleeper at night!
