“Baxter is very obedient and well trained.”
The Cartwright family recently moved with their family dog, Baxter, from Sydney to the English countryside in Manchester with Petraveller. Julia talks about her pet’s beautiful temperament and explains why she used Petraveller for Baxter’s international pet transport to Manchester.
Silky Terrier x Maltese Baxter is a beautiful boy with a sweet personality. He’s very obedient and well trained. Julia says fondly, “Baxter has given us so much joy. He’s very loving and likes his tummy rubbed. Baxter always tries to do the right thing and responds well to a soft, reassuring voice. He has a toy, which we call Baby, he loves to show it off and play throw. He’s very sociable and loves other dogs. When it comes to food, the simpler and more wholesome, the better. Due to his cortisone, Baxter gets hungry at different times of the day and drinks a lot of water.”
Baxter’s health was a matter of concern for the family. Julia shares, “Baxter has had a pancreatic tumour for some time, and at the end of last year, it started to affect him. Going onto cortisone and pain medication has made him more comfortable. He has a soft palate, which causes him to gag. This happens when he is held in a way that constricts his throat or when he holds his head in a way that causes a constriction. He’s had it for several years.”
Julia continues with a smile, “Baxter is a fighter and loves to be included in everything, from daily walks to the coffee shop or even a long 4-5km walk. He loves being held upright and will sit back into your arms comfortably. He is always by my side and sleeps right up next to me every night.”
Julia and her family were moving to the beautiful English countryside in Manchester to be closer to their family and friends. She says, “We both have been given wonderful opportunities with our work.” As Baxter is a part of the family, leaving him behind was never an option for Julia.
Pet travel can be a stressful process, especially if you’re in the middle of your international relocation. Julia decided to hire an international pet relocation agency to assist her with Baxter’s move to Manchester to make the entire process easy and less stressful. Julia says, “Petraveller’s customer experience has been amazing from the start. The proposal and how it was presented to the reassurance given with how everything would work. Also, Petraveller’s reviews were very comforting.”
Baxter made his long journey without a worry and landed safely and in good health in Manchester. Thank you, Julia, for choosing Petraveller for beloved Baxter’s relocation. We wish the Cartwright family lots of love, laughter and lots of walks with Baxter in beautiful Manchester.
