Hi! My name is Baxter. I am a Rat Terrier from Richmond, VA

Nicknames: Baxter-brown, Snickerdoodle, Doodlebug, BooBear, Bax, Bud
Birth Day, Month and Year: 6/2/2001
Age: 15
Weight: 11-25 lbs.
Gender: M
Education: He's just a well- mannered, balanced dog. He's had virtually no health issues and at 11 still acts like a young pup, lots of times. I was given Baxter, by my Dad as a birthday gift, when he was 5 wks old, so we have an amazing bond. He's had puppy training, a must for a terrier, and I studied animal behavior and dog training in college, so he was my trainee. He always excelled, as rat terriers are as smart as they are tenacious.
My pet peeves: Baxter doesn't care for smoke or smokers (don't blame him). Lol He is very vocal, so apartment life, with noisy neighbors has been a struggle for him (and my husband and I). He seems to be getting more vocal about noises the older he gets. I hate he has to feel so tense. I certainly would enjoy a home with lots of yard for him to run and no neighbors close by. He doesn't care for stray cats, but tolerates any of the family ones.
My hobbies: Baxter loves to run and chase anything that runs from him. He really loves being outside, playing fetch with balls or sticks, or just sniffing the ground. His nose is perpetually stuck to ground!! He love to bark, bark, bark! Most times I know what he wants...
My favorite hang out spot? Between my husband and I on the couch when we are home, in my bed ANYTIME, uncovering new discoveries and getting filthy in Ma and Pops backyard, running wild on Grammy and Grandads land in the country (probably his favorite)
My favorite grub: Purina Pro Lamb and Rice with bacon grease, for his skin and coat, he itches quite bad, the grease helps, vet suggested
My favorite treat: Salmon jerky
My favorite tricks: He can jump very high, grab and hold on off the ground, front flip with assistance,
What I love about my owner: My Mom knows me like no one else, she takes the very best care of me she can and loves me as much as I love her
Motto He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
