A volunteer writes: Baxter is a chubby, gleeful, slobbery and curious ball of joy. This gentleman has a hunger for life (and for everything else!) that’s evident as soon as you meet him. Although he’s only 2, Baxter seems to have learned basic commands at some point as he knows how to sit for treats (in fact, I get a feeling he’d do anything for them) and he also seems housetrained (he waited patiently until we were outside to take the longest pee I’ve ever seen– must have been holding that one in for a long time!). Baxter loves to explore with his nose and his mouth, sniffing everything we passed on our walk and drooling all over most of it. He even licked my hand for a while to check if it was edible or not. 😉 Baxter isn’t great at sharing toys and would do best with an experienced adopter– especially one who loves to cuddle and doesn’t mind putting Baxter on a little diet.

Baxter was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Baxter is a bit sexually motivated but listens to the correction offered by the female dog. He initially wanders in the pens, displaying bouncy body language. With further play group sessions, he engages in high energy play with males and females. He continually solicits play, ignoring the other dogs’ body language that they do not want to play. 7/2: Baxter greets appropriately and wanders in the pen. He becomes sexually motivated and attempts to mount the female dog. She offers correction and Baxter continues to wander in the pen. 7/7: Baxter greets the female dog and is sexually motivated, persistently sniffing her genital area, but does not attempt to mount. He listens to handler interruptions intermittently and wanders in the pen displaying bouncy body language. 7/8: Baxter engages in high energy, sloppy play with male and female dogs. He continually solicits play, ignoring the other dogs’ body language that they do not want to play. 7/15:Baxter greets with a neutral body at the gate. When the gate door is opened, he immediately becomes uncomfortable with the other dog’s solicitations and begins to chase her with a stiff body and low growls.
