Adoptable Dog of the Week-Baxter

This furry Elton John fan is looking for a soul mate! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Baxter, a 9 years old long-haired Chihuahua mix from Denver, Colorado. This cutie pie is neutered and housebroken and ready to go to his furever home. Baxter is a friendly little pooch that gest along with cats and dogs but isn’t the best match for a household with small kids.


Baxter’s Tale


It ain’t easy being an older gentleman in search of a perfect family! Luckily for Baxter, he is so cute and lovely that he shouldn’t have any issue charming the pants off any hooman that meets him. Especially if the said hooman loves Elton John as much as Baxter does- this lovely pooch is well-known around the shelter as Tiny Dancer, which is his favorite tune to dance to.


This gorgeous little fella is sweet as they come and will make anyone a loving companion. He can be a bit shy and nervous around men and kids under the age of ten but provided that you have patience and the right attitude, he will warm up to you in no time. In the past, he has lived with cats and dogs both, so he wouldn’t mind if he had to share his new home with another four-legged roommate. Also, as Baxter had some time to learn the ropes of being a good boy, he is fully housebroken and walks well on a leash. All he needs is someone to love and to love him in return- as for the rest, he has it all figured out.


This adorable grandpa is looking for a family to settle with for his remaining golden years. If you think your family is a match for Baxter’s needs and personality, contact Dumb Friends League for more information on how to adopt him.
