Poodle (Standard) / Springer Spaniel / Mixed : : Male : : Adult : : Large
DOG LOCATION: Toronto, ON. Baxter is a 5 year old poodle-mix, weighing in at 65lbs. He's a little on the chunky side, but...well, food is AWESOME!
He has been loved all of his life but due to a change in life circumstances Baxter finds himself in the hands of SPIN. That's ok, we got you buddy!
Baxter has Addison's Disease, which is currently under control with a low dose protocol of Zycortal (the generic version of Percorten) and prednisone. It sounds scary but it really isn't. Addison's dogs live full, long lives and most of the time you'd never know they had a disease. (Well, a little weight from the prednisone might show.)
Baxter is a very friendly dog and loves people. No stranger danger here. He does sometimes love treats too much and will want to protect his food from you. He'll need to go to an adult only home with a family looking to work with their dog and teach him it's ok to share!
Baxter is a lover and he just wants his own family to love. If you're interested in learning more about him please email us to start the conversation!
