Adoption Pending :)
Adoption Area: Knoxville/East Tennessee

Baxter needs: Hi, my name is Baxter. I am a very active and playful, 5-year-old male Shih Tzu mix. I am a sturdy little guy and weigh just a tad over 13 pounds.

I enjoy car rides, going out for Sunday Brunch, hosting parties, and Ballroom dancing 😁.

Give me a chance, you are going to love me. I am playful and affectionate. I walk pretty well on a leash. I’ll get along with almost every other small dogs you might have (after I let them know that I want to be the boss). I like other small dogs just fine, but I don’t really need them in my life.

Invite your friends over; I can hardly wait to meet them. Let’s have a party, I just love to show off my dance moves. I have nice manners and I don’t chew things I am not supposed to. I am potty trained and prefer to do my business outdoors but will use a piddle pad if I must. I will sleep quietly in a crate if that is what you want, but I have slept in the big people bed and vastly prefer it.

I know I sound like the perfect dog, but you should know that I am recovering from this pesky skin infection. I was loaded with fleas prior to Rescue. I have to take medicated baths at least once a week until that clears up. I’ll bring my special shampoo with me. My foster mom bathes me in her kitchen sink. It’s not my favorite thing, but I tolerate it and don’t make a big scene. Being a Shih Tzu mix means I will require regular brushing and grooming.

I am not a fan of big dogs, so it would be best if I didn’t have to share a space with them. And while I absolutely love calm older children, very small children are just a bit too loud and unpredictable for me.

I have had all my vaccinations. I have been neutered and microchipped. I am up to date on my flea, tick, and heartworm preventative. Other than recovering from my skin problem, I have no other health issues that I am aware of. My adoption fee is $175.
