Meet Baxter

Hi My name is Baxter.
I had a home and a family for ten years, but bad stuff happen and I don't have them anymore. When I first lost them I came to my foster family and I walked around and around their house, sniffing for familiar smells and looking for things that remind me of home, I was sad and confused and there were times in the first few days that I cried. I started to feel better when my foster parents picked me up and let me cuddle next to them.

I have lots of lumps and bumps and skin tags, but my foster Mom says they don't bother her. She says they make me beautiful. DID YOU HEAR THAT? I AM BEAUTIFUL!!!

Are your legs sometimes stiff? Ohmygosh, so are mine, especially my back legs. Sometimes I need a little boost to get up, but then I can walk fine. A little like a penguin, but fine. Steps are tough for me. My foster Mom carries me up and down stairs. She says it is "weight training." (Are you kidding me? I am only 24 pounds! That's not weight training!). But I would rather not deal with steps, if you know what i mean. Even one step is tough for me.

There are two other big dogs here, but they don't bother me. I mean, they want to play and I don't want to play with them, so we leave each other alone. I like to walk and walk and walk around. It would be fine if one of them wanted to curl up next to me and snooze, but I am fine by myself.

We go outside all the time so they can play and do their business, so I do my business outside and I explore the yard- I love it. If I have to go to potty I go to the door and whimper and just like that my foster Mom lets me go outside to pee. Isn't that cool?

I like to be around somebody as much as possible because I get lonely.

I will tell you one of my pet peeves. I think it's rude when people eat in front of me. I will bark to let you know that "Sharing is Caring." I'm helpful in that way- You're welcome.

So now you know alot about me. Will you be my forever family?

Your Soon To Be Best Friend,
