This adorable Yorkshire Terrier belongs to Melanie Musick at Living on the Edge with Chip Ingram. Unlike the more common 4- to 7-pound Yorkie, Baxter weighs in at 20 pounds making him quite the giant in the terrier world.
Here’s a fun fact about Yorkies: They originated in Yorkshire (and adjoining Lancashire), a county in northern England when mid-19th-century workers from Scotland came to Yorkshire in search of work and brought with them several different varieties of small terriers. The breed was introduced in North America in 1872.
Baxter is a 15-month-old lover boy full of energy and personality. According to Melanie, he growls, barks and scratches his feet behind him when he sees dogs on TV. In fact, he’s so smart he even knows the commercials that have dogs in them and comes running the minute he hears the jingle or the actor speaking.
