Baxter the Dog


happybaxterBAXTER’S STORY:

Baxter is a smart & happy dog who loves his family very much. He protects his family’s garden from bunnies, and he loves to play with his dog & cat friends in his neighborhood. When Baxter’s family needs to move to a larger house, he is nervous about the changes at first, but he eventually settles in and makes some new friends. And pretty soon his new house starts to feel a lot like home.

Baxter’s New Home will help children of all ages understand that moving to a new home is an exciting time with endless possibilities.
