Baxter, boxer mix
Baxter is a darling male boxer mix staying at Matty's Heart & Soul Animal Rescue.
Baxter loves other dogs. His ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. He's already neutered, and he has had all his shots. No need to worry: He's already house-trained.
From Baxter's current caretaker:
Baxter is a very sweet boy that came from Alabama. Once he arrived we found out he was heartworm positive. He has been undergoing treatment and will receive at least one more injection prior to being available for adoption. He is house trained, crate trained, and he is a little bit of a puller on the leash. His excitement for other dogs can come off as aggression, however, once the proper introductions, he loves them.
