Chewbacca's Story...
Hey there, I’m Chewbacca. I’m told I’m a handsome boy! I’m a Basenji mix, about 3-1/2 years old. I need to be active and get all my energy out. I LOVE to run and run and chase a ball. I’ve been working really hard on obedience. The humans say I’m doing a great job, but I am vocal when I’m excited so I have to wear a collar to remind me to stay quiet when I’m in social situations or in the backyard. I really enjoy people and affection. My coat is super soft so you’ll love petting me! The downside is I don’t like the car. It makes me anxious. The upside is I’ll walk anywhere! I love walks and they help wear my nails down which is great because I don’t let anyone clip them. I like to play with dogs. I can be a little picky. My favorites are usually close to my size and girls. Oh yeah, I’m about 35 lbs. I REALLY want to be a part of a family. I like kids, but kids over 8. Just so you know, I am a chewer so if I don’t get any attention I know just how to entertain myself! It might be a good idea to keep some kongs and nylsbones handy. I’d like to live somewhere with a fenced yard so I can play in the backyard freely. What are you waiting for? Put in your application so you can meet me! My adoption fee is $150.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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