A FOREVER home is being sought for three-legged Baxter, a special resident at Dogs Trust West London in Harvil Road, Harefield.

Baxter, a seven-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier, arrived at the centre after his devoted owner died. 

The dog was involved in a road traffic accident before he arrived, which meant he had to have his front leg amputated.

He has adapted to life on three legs brilliantly and it does not appear to slow him down! 

Richard Moore, centre manager said: “Baxter is a real sweetheart, who hasn’t had the best luck recently.

“He loves to explore, especially places with long grass where he can investigate all the scents. 

“He is a sensitive soul, who takes a little warming up to form special bonds with people and he will need a family who can give him time and patience to build his confidence again.”

Baxter would be best suited to being the only dog in the home so he can be the focus.He can live with children aged 12 and over.
