vizsla beagle mix
10 months old
Are you looking for the perfect exercise buddy to join you on runs, hikes, long walks or whatever else strikes your fancy? Baxter is your boy!
We think he a vizsla beagle mix, weights about 31 lbs, this energetic 10 month old pup is looking for an active family who can keep up with his boundless energy.
Baxter loves to play fetch, race around the house with his squeaky toys, and wrestle with his doggie friends. This is the type of dog who can do an 8 mile hike and still be up for a round of fetch a few hours later. Currently his foster is taking him on three 1-1.5 hour long walks a day which seems to suit him very well. That being said, once Baxter gets all his energy out he loves nothing more than to cuddle with his people all night long. He has so much love to give and truly thrives on human attention.
Baxter is great with dogs his size or smaller, and usually likes larger dogs as well though occasionally he can get a bit intimidated by certain large dogs. He is currently living with his foster’s two doodles who are 9 and 25 pounds. He could live with other dogs around his size or smaller, or could be just as happy being an only dog. He is also very well housetrained (he’s never once had an accident in his foster’s house), knows how to sit and “drop it” when playing fetch, and generally has good house manners. He has no problem going into his crate when his foster parents leave the house and doesn’t seem to have any separation anxiety.
Baxter’s adopters will need to be committed to his ongoing training and socialization. He does have some stranger-danger, especially with new men in his home, but he has already come so far in his short time with his foster family. He is also a young and excitable boy who is still working on walking calmly on leash, remembering not to chase bikes and joggers, and greeting other dogs in a relaxed manner. He is highly food motivated, learns extremely quickly, and has so much potential.
If you are looking for a super loving, goofy energizer bunny who will put a smile on your face everyday then looking no further than Baxter!
