Basil's Info...

Basil's Story...
Meet Basil our male 3 year old Chihuahua-mix snuggle bear, weighing 11 lbs. Basil came to us from a California shelter and was found to be undernourished and frightened. Since then we have brought him over to Seattle where he is currently looking for his forever home.

Basil is a bundle of joy filled with so much love. He is eager to please and responds very well to consistent training and positive reinforcements.
He does fantastic on walks and is already house-trained. He loves to be a around his people and does not understand the concept of personal space so be prepared to have a shadow or a constant snuggle buddy who is as cute as can be.

Basil is a bit nervous around men at first, but with a bit of patience and love he comes around. We are working on this and have seen improvement but his adopter will need to continue building his confidence and trust around men. This helps bond everyone together and helps Basil know what is expected.

We also recommend that he be placed in a home that is calm and with no children younger than 13yrs of age.

He gets along well with other dogs similar in size and tends to ignore cats.

Basil is up to date on his shots, neutered and micro chipped. His adoption fee is $350.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Basil, a Seattle Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua for sale in Seattle, or seeking a Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Seattle.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Seattle already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Seattle breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chihuahua breeders who help with Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Seattle paves the way for another one to be saved.
