I adopted Baxter a few years ago from Southern Pines Animal Shelter, and it is one of the best decisions I ever made.
Baxter came into my life following the death of my longtime pet.
When I found him, I was looking for a different breed, but if I had gotten a puppy from the best breeder in the country, I never could have found a better match for me.
From the time I brought him home, Baxter has brought nothing but joy to my life.
I would encourage anyone who is looking for a pet to consider adopting through one of the local shelters.
