Facts about Banjo

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Boston Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Little black and white Banjo is a ten year old Chihuahua/Boston terrier mix weighing eleven pounds who is house trained, crate trained, leash trained, nondestructive, neutered, vaccinated, current on heartworm prevention, and has even had dental care! He's being offered for no adoption fee to an approved adopter. Banjo entertains himself with no destruction while the owner is at work. He's not into doggie toys, but likes to chill indoors. A soft pillow and ear rub keeps him happy. He's neutral toward other dogs, neither needy nor aggressive. Banjo lives peacefully with multiple cats at his foster home. He loves being petted and enjoys companionship with adult humans. He warms up quickly to a person who sits at his level and pets him, especially if they offer a food treat. Unfortunately, his doting owner is expecting a baby soon, so Banjo was surrendered to our rescue program. He enjoys short walks but doesn't need much outdoor exercise. There is evidence of cataracts forming on his eyes, yet he has functional vision and hearing. There are several papilloma-like benign warts on his back and legs. A quiet predictable home without young children who startle little dogs is recommended. He's good company for a retired person or someone working from home. He is happy leash walking for about one mile and enjoys car rides. Email for an adoption application or to obtain more information. Life expectancy is about 16 years.

About Petsaver-NC Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Petsaver-NC is an all volunteer rescue group for dogs and puppies and sometimes kittens located near Chapel Hill, NC. Most of the animals in the network are rescued from local shelters. All animals are provided appropriate routine medical care and spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Foster caregivers keep the animals at their homes until appropriate permanent homes are located for the animals. Petsaver-NC is a no-kill organization. Currently we also have rescued horses in our foster program.

Visit our Facebook page at to view postings and pictures of recently adopted pets and their new families, meet our volunteers at work, or to post comments about dogs you adopted from Petsaver-NC. We'd love to hear your happy ending stories.

VOLUNTEERS: Petsaver-NC is recruiting volunteers who share our mission of finding homes for rescued dogs and pups. We currently need enthusiastic people to walk dogs, teach them basic commands, take dogs for outings to expose them to new situations, and to handle shy dogs who lack confidence. It's a rewarding experience to transform an insecure, inexperienced rescued dog into a confident, well-mannered, more adoptable dog who will find a forever home much easier thanks to the caring help of a dog-loving person. While you're walking for exercise or to lose weight, why not take a dog who needs human contact along with you? We invite adults, scouts, homeschooled families, or students looking for extra volunteer community service hours to join us at Petsaver-NC. Petsaver NC currently works with several high schools to help students earn school credit and mandatory service hours.

DONATIONS: Petsaver-NC currently has a need for the following new or used items:
collars, leashes, dog or puppy food (canned or dry), metal or plastic bowls, shampoo, disinfectants, tennis balls, towels, blankets, worn clothing that could be used as rags or crate bedding, stuffed toys, doggie bones, treats, crates, and copy paper. If you can donate any of these items, we thank you.

Our Adoption Process...

Please email for an application or to inquire about one of our adoptable pets. Adoption donation of $195 for dogs or $135 for cats partially covers the cost of food and pet supplies, spaying or neutering, vet exam, deworming, heartworm testing/prevention, flea prevention, and age appropriate vaccinations. Adoption fee for equines varies. We allow a two week trial period for all adoptions to be sure the pet works out well in the adopter's environment. The adoption fee is refunded during the trial period upon return of the animal and the health records if the adoption does not work out. We supply adopters with literature on training your adopted pet to ensure a happy outcome for both adopter and animal. Adopters must be at least 22 years old and financially independent. Appointments are scheduled to meet the animals at the foster home upon receipt of an online application.
