Hi, I’m Baxter! My foster people say I’m the most cuddly dog they have ever known, they say instead of being called a lap dog I should be called a crawl-on-your-chest-cuddle-into-your-neck dog! And I just love getting petted and scratched and loved on, if you start petting me I try everything I can to make sure you won’t stop.
Some things you might like to know about me - I love outside! Since I’ve lost some weight I’ve learned that I love to run - and I don’t let being blind stop me from going full speed ahead so you’ll have to watch where I’m going, ok?!
Do you have stairs in your house? You may have to help me at first but I’m pretty good at going up. Down is scary so hopefully you can give me a ride! You don’t have to feel bad for me though, it only takes me a few days and I’ll have my new house mapped! I still bump into things sometimes but I don't seem phased at all and I just keep going.
My wish list for my forever home is a household where someone is home a lot. I am ok alone but I’m very used to having my people close by as much as possible. And it’s ok if you have other pets, if they are nice I’m nice too. I sometimes bark when I hear new voices but I’m super quiet otherwise. Because I need extra help with stairs and getting around I hope my new people are ok to carry me and lifting me up to where I need to go.
