Meet Baxter!


Looking for the sweetest boy??? Meet Baxter! Baxter is a 6-month-old Great Dane/Standard Poodle mix-although he looks mostly Dane with a bit of wavy hair on his back!

Baxter is a curious puppy, interested in all the unknowns of the world! He’s doing awesome potty training and goes to the back door when he needs to go out.

He’s currently in a foster home with two young kids, 3 dogs, and a cat and he loves them all! He especially loves to snuggle with the kids but will settle for snuggling with the grown-ups if the kids aren’t available!

Baxter is crate-trained, and he walks really well on a leash, improving those leash manners every time he goes out!

Baxter is a pretty big boy-weighing in at almost 70 pounds at his 5 1/2 month visit! We are excited to see how much he has grown when he goes back to the vet!

Baxter would love a home with lots of friends to play with and a few squishy beds to relax in! Baxter is being fostered in Matthews NC. He will require a fenced yard and giant breed experience. If interested in Baxter you can email us at
