Meet Basil

Basil is a lovely natured boy who behaves beautifully whilst in the yard. Unfortunately due to his limited dog socialisation and being neglected he is best suited to a family that would like a dog that is happy to potter around the yard with another dog as Basil isn't an active dog and can get overly excited and hard to control whilst on a lead. Basil is very well behaved in the yard and wont jump up at you, he will sit and wait for his dinner and loves to play fetch which is a great way to exercise him in the yard. He would be great with slightly older children as he isn't bouncy but could possible knock really young children over. He is currently living with 4 other dogs and gets along well with them although needs guidance from his handler when being introduced to new dogs. Basil would love to go to a home with another doggie friend to play with and requires a new family that has had some experience with managing dogs before.

Basil was adopted on 19 November 2007 after 6 months in foster care
