Good with kids, Good with dogs, Good with cats, Needs special attention, Spayed or Neutered,
Basil joined our family at 9 weeks. She is a Mama’s girl. She has learned to trust the rest of the family. She no longer yelps when I leave her at the groomers. She is a smart girl and loves to learn tricks. Like jumping into my lap both when I’m sitting or standing. She is super playful. We have a 5 year old dog who is 75lbs and a 6month old who is 45lbs. Basil can not get enough of playing with them. Which is one of the reasons she needs a new home. Our 5 year old plays carefully with her. But the 6 month old is just as crazy as Basil is. I’m concerned that she is going to get hurt soon. When I break them up it’s Basil who run back for more. If you’re interested in my sweet baby girl let me know, I can tell you so much more.
