About Braxton

Golden Retriever / Poodle
Age: Young Adult

Braxton (aka Baxter) is the sweetest, most unbothered doodle dog you will ever meet! He is potty trained, crate trained, knows 'sit', 'down', and 'wait', loves to go for walks, and LOVES snacks! He is a food motivated dog and learns quickly as a result. He has the happiest personality and loves his people. Braxton is dog friendly, too! He hasn't been directly tested with kiddos but we suspect he would do well with older children, especially if they play with him! He would love to have a fenced yard so he can explore and play freely! You may be wondering, why is he described as 'unbothered'? Well, when Braxton first came to his foster family, he was in rough shape. He got a nosebleed on the second day and we learned from the vet that he had very low platelets. In fact, by the weekend they were zero. He was hospitalized for days at an ER and through it all he was an absolute champion! He was so happy to see his foster parents when they visited and loved playing in the snow despite being so sick-he is a trooper! We're not 100% certain what caused his platelets drop, but the emergency vet thought it was likely idiopathic thrombocytopenia (IPT). We are hopeful that this was a one-off situation spurred by a combination of being neutered, receiving multiple vaccines, and being transported from Texas in a very short period of time. Since then, Braxton has been taking several medicines to get his platelets back up to normal, and he even saw an internal medicine vet specialist! At present he is only on one medication (mycophenylate), administered once in the morning and once at night, and the specialist advised that he will need to stay on it through August 9th - 6 months after he was hospitalized. In this time period, his adopter will need to take him for vet visits every 2-3 weeks to monitor his platelets, and they will need to refill his medication as it is tapered. Braxton is a very special, very sweet dog and would make a wonderful addition to any family! It is his foster family's hope that he finds someone who has plenty of time to spend with him because he absolutely thrives with human attention! Please consider welcoming this adorable, goofy boy into your heart and home! Braxton is in foster in Denver, Colorado. *We require all adopters to come to Colorado to adopt. *We do not transport dogs. * You can view this wonderful dog at You can apply for our wonderful dogs at
