Basil – 1-2 year old male Terrier Cross

Presenting the wonderful Basil! Basil was saved from a Spanish Perrera. He was in danger, he had been found as a stray and we do not have much information on his past, only to say that his former owner cut off his ears and tail, then eventually dumped him on the streets. His ears and tail have healed well and despite whatever horrors he may have suffered this boy is one of the most relaxed, loving dogs we have ever met.

Basil is a young dog, he rarely barks, only when encouraged by our resident dog (naughty Pootle) and only if there happens to be a rather brave cat in the garden. He loves to watch TV and he really does watch it! Basil also likes to people watch, one of his favourite places is sitting on the windowsill watching the world go by. Basil is a very clean dog, he’s not had one accident in the house. He loves being groomed and will sit still for you to brush him (I think he’d let you do it all day). Walking Basil is a real pleasure, he doesn’t pull at all (unheard of I know) and off lead he never wanders too far and always comes back when called! (I’m not sure he’s a terrier at all).

Basil’s biggest problem is car sickness, he’s getting better and doesn’t suffer as badly if walked well beforehand but he still nonetheless suffers. On short journeys he drools but longer ones he is actually sick. You can leave Basil for a few hours, he can be trusted not to chew or get into the bins and has displayed no destructive behaviour towards the house. If however you have a tennis ball or fluffy toy it’s game over!

We are looking for a home that wants a new best friend. Basil is one in a million and the new family will be the lucky ones. Basil has his passport, is microchipped, fully vaccinated, neutered and raring to go.
