Chester Springs, PA, 19425
Pet name:
Wheaten Terrier
Baxter is a 1 year old neutered male wheaten terrier/border terrier mix who weighs 25 lbs. Baxter was one of 40+ animals seized from the home of a family facing charges of neglect and murder related to the death of their 14-year-old disabled daughter, as well as multiple charges of animal neglect and cruelty. Having spent his life in deplorable conditions, we are so thankful this lucky guy made it out alive and now has the chance to find a family deserving of his love and loyalty. Despite the horrific neglect he endured, Baxter has never been anything but gentle and sweet. Its obvious that he is not used human kindness or attention - he has a sad way about him that just breaks your heart. Baxter has zero confidence and try to hide or blend into his surroundings when focus is on him. When he was rescued, he was found shaking like a leaf laying amongst trash. Now Baxter is doing his best to be brave and to learn to trust, and while he is getting more and more comfortable every day, hes going to need time and patience as he learns that hes safe now. Baxter gets along great with other dogs and cats and seems most comfortable in their company. He enjoys playing with his canine pals and can often be found snuggled up with one of his buddies. Baxter is still learning about leashes and being handled but has been very tolerant and has never been anything but gentle. He is looking for an experienced, patient and compassionate family ready to help him build his confidence and learn how to be a loved pet. Baxters ideal home would have another dog to help show him the ropes and a yard where he can safely work on his leash walking skills. Baxter has so much potential and we cant wait to see him living the life of a loved pet. Please help us find this special soul the amazing family he deserves!

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
