Poor Basil has once again found himself back in rescue after an incident with guarding in the home. He is such a lovely boy, but does need an experienced owner willing to work through his issues and be able to handle situations that might arise when Basil wants his own way. He can get very anxious and over aroused in certain situations and does like to protect the space around him.

However Basil is such a sweet chap who loves cuddles and playing most of all and would benefit from an active home with someone around a lot of the day. He is very energetic for his age and loves long walks so don’t let his age put you off as this boy is more like a 3 year old.  Basil in the past hasn’t been too keen on other dogs so would suit being the only pet in the home and may need some further training when out and about, however with socialisation training at the sanctuary with our staff, he has actually made a couple of doggy friends who he loves to run around the field with… it shows that even an older dog with a bit of perseverance can learn new tricks! He is great on the lead however and has good manners and really is such a delight to be around. We can provide lots of support and help before Basil is adopted to ensure he is the right match for you, so please consider giving this handsome boy a chance.
