BAXTER, black labradoodle, male approx 55-60lb Cincinnati area
Baxter was born November 9th, 2005 His family got him as an older pup, and haven't really had him very long, but have started his obedience training at Petsmart puppy classes, where he's doing quite well - he has mastered "sit", but is still perfecting his "come" and "stay". He's housebroken, crate trained and walks ok on the leash with a haltie,
With a 4 year old child, and another one on the way, the family have realized that their not quite ready for the time and effort required to raise a puppy and two human babies, and that it would be much better for Baxter to go live with someone who has more time for him.
Baxter is a good boy, whose only bad habit is a fondness for digging in the yard sometimes.
He's all up to date on shots, including rabies, and is on heartworm and flea & tick preventative. He has not been neutered yet, unfortunately. We did talk to the owner about getting that done as soon as possible. It's really important that it's done soon - apart from the socially responsible aspect of pet neutering, un-neutered males can develop bad habits like territory marking, humping other dogs or other dominance issue behaviors - and this is the age when those behaviors might start to become noticeable.
