Meet Baxter! A major lifestyle change occurred in Baxter’s family and now he needs a new home. Here’s some details about this little man from his mom…

About Baxter….I’m not sure how old Baxter is. I rescued him 5 years ago and was told that he came from a puppy mill in Missouri. He had bad teeth when I got him, but his vet thinks he is at least 10. When Baxter first came into my life he had all the indications of a puppy mill dog. He learned to run again, play and after a long period of time, learned to trust me and come out of his shell and became a happy dog. He still has some issues—he does not fully trust a lot people especially men. He was diagnosed with patella luxation about 4 years ago. This has been managed with pain meds which helps greatly. He had a change in meds and is now on Deramax. His vet is Dr. Jeffrey Nelson at the Granite City Pet Hospital in St. Cloud, 320-252-0277. This condition has caused him to be very slow with weakness. He does get around and goes up and down stairs, but some days can be more of an effort for him. His teeth are not very good as I said they were not good when I adopted him. He does get them cleaned and I have all of his medical records on file. He usually spends his days on his blanket on “his couch” and is not very active. Because of Baxter’s health and personality I would very much like him to go to a home where he has someone to be there for him throughout the day, preferably where he will be the only dog or with another dog that is older. Baxter sounds like a great dog for an older person with a quiet lifestyle who would like a day-long companion. Please consider him!
