This week's pooch is Baxter, a male bloodhound mix. He has been at the pound since he was a puppy and has grown up here - he is probably a year old now. He is the most laid back and lazy dog I have ever met at the pound. His favorite thing to do is lying around. Of course he is still a lot of fun. I think he would be a great dog for first time dog owners.

Baxter is very smart and at such a young age, he is great on a leash! He likes to keep track and connect with his person by laying on your feet. Baxter loves to play ball and will even bring it back to you! This dog is playful and loyal. Baxter is a large breed puppy although his exact breeds are unknown.

There are thousands of dogs that are euthanized every year in our shelter in Texarkana. Please help us make a difference by spreading the word. The shelter's adoption fees range from $40 to $144, depending on the gender and size of the animal or whether they have been spayed or neutered yet. You can also have your pet micro-chipped for only $20 right at the shelter! That way if your pet is ever lost, he can be returned to you quickly.

The Animal Care and Adoption Center is located at 203 Harrison St., Texarkana, Ark. 71854 and is open Monday through Saturday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
