BASIL's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.

BASIL's Story...
Basil is a 6 year old, male neutered dachshund who is extremely sweet, friendly and affectionate. He loves to be cuddled and will nuzzle into your neck or smother you with kisses.

He is a playful little guy that loves belly rubs and is eager to join you for a nice walk or an enjoyable car ride. He is comfortable in the car and travels well. Basil knows a few commands such as "sit" and "shake a paw" and is able to perform them exceptionally well when he knows that he will be rewarded with a treat.

Basil loves to curl up on his blanket or in your lap where he feels safe and secure. He also enjoys burrowing under blankets and will curl up and fall asleep like this. He sleeps peacefully and soundly in a crate during the night and is happy and excited to get up and going in the morning.

He is protective of his "people and home" but does get along with other dogs. He may do better in a home where he is the only pet. Basil is house trained however if he is left unattended or alone for long periods of time he may have the occasional accident.

Basil loves people and let's you know when you have company by greeting them at the door with a hearty welcoming bark.

He is ready for his forever home where he will be an excellent companion and can be loved and spoiled.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Peterborough 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 Peterborough 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 Dachshund breeders who help with Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Peterborough paves the way for another one to be saved.
