Additional info:

Captain is a high energy, playful dog who gets along well with everyone. He would be a great hiking partner as well as a great family dog for someone who lives an active lifestyle. He would adore frisbee or agility exercises. He is not at all aggressive and he sleeps throughout the night in his crate. He can get a little spooked by new people or joggers at first but once he knows someone he is totally fine. Captain was adopted out of the shelter only to be returned because he is an escape artist. Due to his mad Houdini tendencies (he can jump onto high tables), he will need a person who can be extremely careful with doors, windows and leaving him unattended in a yard or balcony. He cannot be left unattended in a yard where the fences are less than 5 ft. Yeah, he's that good!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Captain, a Encino Italian Greyhound/Basenji puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Italian Greyhound/Basenji for sale in Encino, or seeking a Italian Greyhound/Basenji puppy from a breeder in Encino.

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