Braxton (male)

Introducing Braxton πŸ₯°

Braxton is a 1 year old 55lb lab/hound mix. This handsome guy may be the happiest dog on the planet. He is a bouncing ball of energy, and we have yet to find the off button! He has the happiest little nubbin that never stops wagging, ears that do their own thing, and a whole lot of love to offer his forever family.
Braxton does well on a leash, in a car, and in his kennel. He LOVES other dogs, and dogs of all shapes and sizes, even the ones who may not like him! He has no aggression towards cats, but may try to play with them, and at his level, would displease any and all felines. Braxton would love some older kids in his life, or an adventurous couple that could take him along for some fun! Someone will be very lucky to have this guy in their life.

Braxton is working on his potty training, and basic commands. This guy loves treats, so training will be very enjoyable for him! Braxton is currently Lyme positive, but will be good as new once he finishes his antibiotics!

This handsome hunk will be available to go home once his neuter is completed in the next couple of weeks. He will be current on core vaccines, has been dewormed, and given monthly flea and rice preventative.

His adoption fee is $125 but any potential adopter still needs an approved adoption application.
