Baxter is a very special boy.   He has been diagnosed with Anorexia.  He has been to several specialists, and undergone extensive testing.  He has gone from nibbling throughout the day to sustain his weight to eating 1 cup of food a day! Baxter is a happy and healthy boy.  He likes dogs of all sizes and loves to spend most of his time in his crate or on the laps of his foster parents. He loves blankets and hoards deer antlers in his crate!  doesnt chew them but likes to have them close by :-).        Baxter loves to cuddle and is a great companion dog. Baxter is now enjoying the occasional rawhide and bones. He LOVES to nap against his super big german shepherd foster brother. Baxter loves chicken strips (Costco only). It's the only time he runs around the house out of excitement :-). 

His perfect family will be one wno can dedicate him time, and a loving, low energy family.   Someone that just wants a cuddle bug will be his  ideal situation. He loves to sleep in big comfy dog beds and human beds. He loves people all ages. 
Children should be mature, considerate of small animals.

Puppies cannot be adopted outside of the Houston area until they are spay/neutered after they are 4 months old.

It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.

NOTE: In our bios, we provide information based on our volunteer's experience with a particular dog; such as temperament, training, and ability to get along with others.

AARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, all breed, no kill organization. Our group is always in need of donations in order to continue to give the needed medical care to our rescues. Adoption fees do not begin to cover all of the medical costs. Any donation , no matter how small is a big help and is greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue to help them. Thank you.
