Paxton…oh Paxton. This good looking lad is probably going to end up on one of those viral dog shaming posts. He may have his head stuck in a garbage pail, he may steal your breakfast, it’s really anyone’s guess. He’s enthusiastic and never boring! Paxton prefers to be a free-range kind of guy versus a stuck-in-a-crate fellow. He would not do well as an apartment dog and needs a partner to do martial arts, circus tricks, or just basic exercise would be ok too. Paxton is actually a smart boy and now part of our canine-inmate program. While he’s in the program he’ll be learning basic obedience and how not to end up on America’s Funniest Videos. If you are looking for a companion to bring a smile to your face, this is your guy. Please fill out an online application to meet Paxton.
Estimated birthdate: November 2016
Weight: 35 lbs (needs to gain at least 5)
Good with kids: seems to be
Good with cats: unknown
Housebroken: yes
**part of canine-inmate program**
