Meet Baxter & Jackson (bonded pair)

Baxter and Jackson prove the concept that opposites definitely attract. These two fellows are bonded to each other and are absolute BFFs. Baxter is a gorgeous blond caramel color, while Jackson has shiny onyx black fur. Both are very sweet and beautiful boys that can’t wait to meet their forever family.

Baxter is one years old and weighs about 60 pounds. He is excellent with all dogs and likes to play with his foster brothers — especially his bestie Jackson. Baxter is medium energy. He also likes to play with toys. While Baxter is submissive and slower to warm up to people, he comes around once he knows you. In fact, Baxter’s foster mom writes that she loves how “Baxter is so loyal and once you gain his trust he is always by your side.” He pulls a little on his leash but loves to be outside in the fresh air. He also is a great car passenger. Baxter is good in his crate and must be crated if unsupervised. He needs a refresher on most commands but as his confidence and trust grows, he’ll be a wonderful student.

Jackson is 4 years old and weighs about 54 pounds. A medium energy pup, Jackson is the life of the party and is super friendly. No dog or person is a stranger to this outgoing pup. He plays well with all his doggo friends. He loves toys—especially kongs. He self crates and stays there when his people aren’t home. He is very smart and already knows sit, down and stay. He is eager to please and will be an avid student to learn how to keep all four on the floor, as well being less vocal. He is good with children and even sleeps in bed with his FM’s daughter. He is a good on the leash and is also an excellent passenger for car rides. His FM says that this dream dog is one of the easiest fosters she’s ever had.

Jackson is the ying to Baxter’s yang, and they bring out the best in each other. Both pups are super sweet, and adore each other. They have not been observed around cats so can’t go to a cat home, but they are approved for Guinea pigs! This beautiful pair would be a perfect twosome for a fun loving forever family.

Disclaimer: Please know this is a recently rescued dog that is still transitioning into a new home environment. Training, and even personality and energy levels are constantly evolving as the dog starts to feel better emotionally and physically. Your new dog will take days or even weeks to fully settle into his or her true self. What you read in this bio is a snapshot of this dog’s evolving personality. Additionally, the age listed is an estimate provided by the shelter and/or veterinarian. Different vets can provide different age estimates. So always consider the lab you are adopting to be within an age range of a couple of years of what is listed. Also remember, while we are a lab rescue, we do not have papers on these dogs, we cannot confirm any breed specific claims, and many of these dogs may be mixed with other breeds.
