Baxter, a young Hound/Great Pyrenees mix, came to our shelter last summer ready to give his love and devotion to a new owner. His sweet and attentive nature brought him interest from adopters, but over several weeks he still had not found his perfect fit… that is, until Chelsea and her four-year-old daughter Neeva arrived at Animal Humane New Mexico.

Shortly after Neeva was born, her parents discovered that she could not hear. As she grew, her family adapted to using sign language, including the family pets. When they arrived at Animal Humane, they let our Adoptions Advisors know that their top priority was to find a dog who would be great with Neeva. As soon as Chelsea saw how calm and attentive Baxter was with Neeva, she knew they had found their little girl’s best friend.

Neeva and Baxter are now inseparable, giving each other love, attention and support. Neeva has a constant companion who understands her and Baxter has a loving family. Your generous support makes happiness possible for dogs like Baxter and for the families who love them.

More than 4,000 pets like Baxter will be adopted this year.  Let’s give them a hand and save their lives together!
