Adopt Me: Baxter still acts like a puppy

This lab mix would prefer to be the only pet in the household

CityNews Halifax, in partnership with the Dartmouth SPCA, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Male Neutered Lab mix
5 1/2 years (approximately)
Suitable for children 14 years and up
Only pet home, no apartments

Apparently no one told Baxter that he is no longer a puppy because he sure acts like one.

He was originally adopted from the SPCA as a puppy and has had a good life. Unfortunately, through no fault of his own, his family is no longer able to care for him so he is looking for a new start in life.

It would be fantastic if his new home had a fenced in backyard he could run around in to burn some energy and help him lose weight, as he is a bit stocky.

The weather is getting warmer and Baxter would love for you to come take him for a walk and see if he doesn't steal your heart. Baxter is ready to embark on a new adventure and hopes he finds someone to love him soon.

Baxter is available for adoption from the Dartmouth SPCA. Please contact us at 468-7877 Option 6 for more information or at

You can drop by the shelter anytime during our business hours to meet adoptable dogs. We do not accept online applications at this time.
