Gustavo's Story...

Gustavo is a three year old, male Corgi/ Basenji mix. He weighs about 30 pounds and has a tricolored coat. Gustavo's foster mom told us this about him: 'He is housetrained and tolerant of a crate, although he doesn't really like it. Gustavo is great with other dogs, cats and children (he has not yet been exposed to children under the age of five). He loves to play with people and other dogs. He also loves soft toys and running around in our fenced-in yard. Gustavo likes the game of fetch. Although initially he pulls a little on walks all it takes a little tug of the leash and he slows down. When the leash comes out he he gets very excited and is ready for an adventure. He does fuss a little at first when in the kennel at night, but after a few minutes he settles right down. Other things about him: he knows how to sit on command; he does well in a car and loves to stick his head out the window. He is both attentive and laid back- a darling guy.' Gustavo has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm and fecal checked, dewormed, and is on flea /tick and heartworm preventatives. His minimum adoption donation is $195.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gustavo, a Bloomington Corgi/Basenji dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Corgi/Basenji for sale in Bloomington, or seeking a Corgi/Basenji dog from a breeder in Bloomington.

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