Update: 9/19/2021 – We have exciting news to share regarding our Mr. Baxter! While he undergoes heartworm treatment, he’s also going to continue learning the full “lay of the land” at his foster home and getting all the attention and love he craves. Mr. Baxter is home to stay and his adoption will be finalized after his heartworm treatment is complete! We are so very happy for our sweet boy!
Another handsome new intake to Operation LBD is OLBD Baxter. This sweet boy is in his prime and a total gentleman. He is a purebred male, Boykin Spaniel and he is past the puppy and early teen shenanigans stages, and is at the great age of 2.5 years old. Baxter is fully vetted and neutered but sadly, he tested positive for heartworms! Baxter is a boxy, yet great proportioned guy with a beautiful coat. In his 2.5 years, he had not experienced much, but now that he is with his foster family, he is experiencing all kinds of first and loving every encounter. He has discovered balls are for chasing, water is for swimming, swings are for swinging and fans are for blowing his ears back! Baxter is wonderful in the car, sitting calmly. He does like to put his face on the center console to get a pat on the head every now and then. Baxter is a calm boy. He does not jump all over his person – phew! Baxter has manners inside, but he is still working on his potty training. It helps that he does not mind belly bands when he is inside, while he is working on his potty training. Baxter would be fine with his family having another dog as long as they still have plenty of attention for him. He has been around cats as well in his foster home and learned that his nose can get too close – ouch! Baxter is definitely a love bug and needs that family that will not hold back showering him with attention and including him in their life, travel and events!
Baxter is currently under medical evaluation while he undergoes heartworm treatment! Please say prayers for Baxter during his treatment! Thank you!!
