Once a swamp dog, now a house dog.
Hello everyone, my name is Baxter.
I am a Plott Hound and I was rescued from a pretty bad hoarding situation. I was living in a giant mud pit with absolutely no shelter. My food and water bowls had maggots in them, and it made me not want to eat. My owner tried to keep me warm with heating lights, but the cords were in standing water, and I am surprised I did not get electrocuted. I was up to my chest in mud and could hardly move. There was so much mud covering me when the nice people from ADORE saved me they thought I was solid black, but much to their surprise I was a gorgeous brindle dog with cute snips of white.
When I first meet new people I am a little shy due to my past, but will warm up. I am crate trained and do very well in the house. I love dogs, and get along with all dogs and love to play with them. I also love people especially the ones that give me good pets. However, I would do best in a home without kids. I am heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.
