Please meet Basil. Someone once loved him. They loved him enough to have him neutered and hold him tight. Something then changed and we don't know why. At 10 years old, Basil should have been living the good life and spending his golden years adored and cherished. However, that wasn't the case.
Basil was found as a stray dragging himself with his front legs. He didn't even look like a dog. Basil was covered in matted fur and filth. He was wearing months, maybe even years of neglect. Matting like this is very painful as it pinches and pulls at the skin and in Basil's case, it restricted him from using his back legs. In the end, 7 lbs of fur and filth were shaved off of him.
Basil is a joy! His foster mom says he can't snuggle close enough to her. He is just a darling little black/gray poodle mix. The way to his heart is certainly through his tummy! Typical man! He loves hard- his person is his everything. We think he'd flourish in a home with a senior or someone home more often than not. He is happy to go for a walk and is a quick little guy, regardless of his age. He gets along well with other dogs too- of all sizes and ages.
If you'd like to give Basil the home he deserves for his golden years, then please submit your adoption application today!
