Big boy Baxter is an 8-year-old Saint Bernard in the care of Foal Farm Animal Rescue in Kent. He’s looking for an adult-only retirement home as an only pet. He’s good with other dogs out and about but he needs all available space and fuss at home!
Although he is huge, he does walk very well on the lead and enjoys a gentle stroll. Baxter will walk past other dogs with no problem, however he is not too keen on dogs coming into his personal space. He loves his food and will perform many tricks to try and get a treat! He’s very affectionate and will lean into you for fuss. He enjoys being brushed too!
Baxter takes a little bit of time to warm up to new people, but once he is your friend, he is a friend for life! He has bonded with all of the staff at Foal Farm already. In the home, careful introductions must be made with visitors. He has some home guarding tendencies and needs to know from his owners behaviour that the visitor is a welcome friend.
Baxter is a real character with lots of love and laughter to give. He would like to avoid children as they can be too sudden and unpredictable for him. There was once an incident where something happened to make him so alarmed that he bit a child. It was out of character for him and everyone, especially Baxter, was very sad afterwards. The team at Foal Farm will support adopters on training advice in regards to Baxter’s quirks and to ensure that he settles into his new home well. He’s such a loveable boy, he just needs to be understood and appreciated.
