Hello, My name is Basil and I'm a three and a half-year-old female Hound mix, but...mostly I'm just a gorgeous girl (I look like I'm wearing a tuxedo) who loves kids, adults and even other dogs with gradual introduction as I am dog selective. I have little patience for small dogs and do better with a calm, larger dog. My foster crates me at first when people come to visit because I tend to jump on them. After a few minutes, I'm let out of the crate and I'm fine with the visitors. I'm potty-trained and I go to the door to let you know that I need to go outside, and I'm even crate trained. I love to sleep in my crate and I'll sometimes go in on my own during the day. I love to play catch with kids and hard toys are my favorite. I even know the commands, "sit, stay, paw and down."
I'm playful and strong and could benefit from a little leash training to learn to control my enthusiasm when on a leash. I've never met a cat so I don't know what my reaction to them would be. A fenced yard would be ideal for my boundless energy. I'm an all-around great family dog for an active, engaged family who wants a young, energetic, happy forever family member and who is past the young puppy training stage. We do recommend older children due to Basil's size, jumping upon to people, and high energy level. If you are interested in meeting/adopting me, please fill out an online dog adoption application for BASIL.
