Sweetheart dog with three legs becomes homeless after beloved owner ᴅιᴇs
He had the perfect life until it all came crashing down – and now he’s starting from scratch again.
Baxter the seven-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier is hoping for a second chance at life after his devoted owner sadly passed away.
The lonely boy was then involved in a road traffic accident when led to him tragically losing one of his legs.
Three-legged Baxter is now at Dogs Trust West London centre, waiting for a forever family who can accept he is perfectly imperfect, and “love him as much as he will love them”.
Centre manager Richard Moore said: “Baxter is a real sweetheart, who hasn’t had the best luck recently.
“He’s adapted extremely well to losing his front leg and loves to explore different areas, especially places with long grass where he can investigate all the scents.
“He is a sensitive soul who takes a little warming up to form special bonds with people and he will need a family who can give him time and patience to build his confidence again.
“Baxter isn’t overly excited by treats or toys, but he is more than happy to receive some fuss or praise.”
Baxter would be best suited to being the only dog in the home, so he can be the focus of his forever family. He can live with children aged twelve and over.
He would like to make some calm dog friends, who he can meet out on walks.

Another adorable dog has found fame online during his quest for a forever family.
The rare puppy has hydrocephalus, which is a term for a build-up of fluid on the brain and leads to a large, abnormally-shaped skull.
The unusual-looking pup, named Chupete, is cross-eyed and has very distinct eyebrows that make him look permanently angry.
But his little scowl only makes him more lovable, and hundreds of people around the world have fallen for him.
Chupete is currently in the Narices Frías shelter in Cochabamba, Bolivia, and is in dire need of a CT scan to further assess his condition.
