IN FOSTER IN PETERSFIELD – PLEASE NOTE; AS BAXTER IS IN OUR SOUTHERN BRANCH,  WE WILL ONLY ACCEPT APPLICATIONS IN THE SOUTH OF THE COUNTRY.

Baxter is a little dog with a big personality and he’s a natural comic who will have you laughing all day at his antics – he also loves to watch tv with you! Baxter came to us with trust issues – he was fearful of strangers, and would growl and snap if a stranger tried to handle him.  This included visitors to the home.   He has come on in leaps and bounds during his time with us, and is much more trusting, but allowance must be made that he may revert initially in his new home.  There is a very easy protocol to deal with this which we will explain to potential adopters.

Baxter is very good in the home, and he loves to play with other dogs – he would love a doggy friend in his new home but its not essential.  He cant live with cats or small furries.  

Baxter will need a home with people who understand fearful dogs and wont force him beyond his comfort zone.  He’ll need his future adopter to meet him a couple of times in his foster home so that he can get to know them.  He loves children, but because of his trust issues and bite history, we will not home him where there are children.

If you think you can offer what he needs, please fill in the form below.  Homecheck and £225 adoption donation applies, and you’ll need to be able to visit him in his foster home.
