Shar Pei / Male / Born April 1999 / Passed away on April 27, 2010

Baxter’s mom had to give him up on orders from her family. He bit them once too often and it came down to him or them. After we took him in, we noticed that his one back leg is an inch shorter than his other, probably the result of an injury suffered when he was a puppy. Thinking that he may be in pain (which could be a contributing factor in his “problem” personality), he was started on anti-inflammatory medicine and monthly arthritis shots. It has changed him into a new wonderful, fun dog. He wisely watched over the kennels until he felt he needed to leave and go to the Rainbow Bridge. He was loved by all the volunteers and will be greatly missed.
