Owner/Handler: Robbie Reed
Baxter came to Robbie and Terry Reed as a very malnourished and neglected rescue at the age of 10 months old. Anyone that saw Robbie and Baxter in competition witnessed a very special bond.
Baxter loved to pull and he loved Robbie. Even with severe Hip Dysplasia he would pull all he could for Robbie. Terry often said that if Baxter had healthy hips he and King Dukes would not have had a chance against Baxter and Robbie.
Baxter retired after the 2011 Championships but he was not happy about it. When the gear was being loaded for the younger dogs he always thought he should be going too.
In his seven seasons of IWPA competition Baxter earned;
125 # Class
150 # Class
He also won Bronze medals on snow in the 150# class at the 2008/2009 and 2009/2010 Championships.
Baron Baxter was laid to rest and crossed over Rainbow Bridge on May 2, 2012. Baxter suffered a stroke on April 22 and despite aggressive veterinary care and medications he never recovered and his condition continued to deteriorate. The decision was made to let him go with the dignity he so deserved.
