Original Story  |  05.13.2014

Hi!  My name is BASIL.  I am a smallish (18.5 lb) very cute 5-6 year old pug boy looking for a new home.  I was living outdoors because my owner was dying and eventually did die.  The people taking care of me kept me outside and fed me only hamburgers and French fries!  Of course, I didn’t complain about the food, but it may have contributed to my developing crystals in my urine. Now I am on a prescription diet dogfood to correct that problem.

I love everyone – people, other dogs, kids.  When I first arrived at my foster home, they thought I had a problem with my hind legs being weak, but after regularly having 2 walks a day, which I LOVE, my legs have gotten much stronger.  I also like to go in the car.

Apparently I didn’t get much attention in the past, because I didn’t know how to play with toys when I arrived in foster care, but I am trying to get the hang of it.  I sure enjoy getting loving attention!

I am housebroken, but will need frequent access to the outdoors, as that is what I am accustomed to.

I will soon be available for adoption, and should make a great family addition.
