Baxter is a handsome, large, Golden with a chill temperament and good house manners, perfect for a family with kids or maybe a dog friend. He’s looking for a family where is he loved as much as he loves back. Is that you/yours?

  • Big, happy, and pretty chill Golden boy
  • Good house manners and has lived with another dog and kids
  • Has basic obedience skills; may be leash reactive but it has yet to show itself at HB
  • OK for most dogs and sturdy kids; Cats are a NO
  • A little shy at first, but a confirmed cuddler in the home once he feels comfortable

Hi everyone. My name is Baxter. I am a big, happy, and pretty darn chill five-year-old Golden. I have lived with another dog and am good with sturdy kids. I have good house manners, some basic skills, and lived inside.  So why am I here? My person said he didn’t have time for me, and that I could be reactive to other dogs on leash…but the people at Homeward Bound have not seen that yet and my person didn’t have time for training if it is a “thing” for me. I absolutely LOVE to play ball and can do it for hours, but you should not let me do that to myself because as a big dog, my joints can get tired. I do like swimming, which is excellent for me and you, too…let’s do it together! I’m less fond of cats…so we should leave them out of the equation. I’m a little out of sorts and very confused about why I am here…so please be understanding if it takes me a little time to cuddle up – which, by the way, is one of my other skills. If you’re looking for someone who fits right in – I’m your guy. Let’s go home…soon!
