Nigel's Story...
Nigel has the heart of a lion, the spirit of a bird, and the energy of a puppy. He is full of love and life and doesn't waste a moment not enjoying both. Nigel came to us from our local kill shelter with no manners, no social skills or discipline. In the short time he has been with us, he has demonstrated his intelligence and his great willingness to pleas. He is doing great at crate training, leash walking, playing in groups with other dogs and has almost mastered the "sit" command. He still has so much more to learn but if the last couple of weeks is any indication, he will have no problem integrating into a new home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Spring Branch 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 Spring Branch 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 Spring Branch paves the way for another one to be saved.
