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 an easygoing, 10 or 11 pound dog who is house trained, crate trained, leash trained, nondestructive, neutered, vaccinated, current on heartworm prevention, and has even had his teeth done! He's being offered for no adoption fee to an approved adopter. Banjo entertains himself without any issue for up to 10 hours a day while the owner is at work. He's not into doggie toys, but likes to chill indoors. He's neutral toward other dogs, neither needy nor aggressive. Banjo barks at cats, so a cat free home is preferred. 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. He is defensive with young children and needs a home without little kids running around him. Unfortunately, his doting owner is expecting a baby soon, so Banjo is being rehomed. He enjoys short walks but doesn't need much outdoor exercise. He has some age related vision loss which may explain his caution with little children. He has a few warts on his back which the vet was not concerned about. Banjo's preferred home is with adults without little chlldren or cats. He's good company for a retired person or someone working from home. Email for an adoption application or to obtain more information. The vet thinks Banjo is 10 years old. 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.

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 $175 for dogs or $95 for cats covers the cost of food, spaying or neutering, vet exam, deworming, heartworm testing/prevention, flea prevention, and age appropriate vaccinations. 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.
