    Story

    Basil is a sweet dog. He is gaining confidence through experiencing new things. For example, he was once afraid of getting into my vehicle and now he’s a pro at jumping into the back of my hatch back vehicle. He loves to play with other dogs and likes cats too. He loves to cuddle, sometimes he is so excited to meet people he can’t wait and wants to jump up for a hug.

    Basil had an injured back right leg. they thought it may have been broken, but it turns out it was only infected. It’s all healed up now and good to run on!

    Basil loves love!

      Basil has some anxiety when left alone and chews on things to sooth himself. I have been working with him on this and have found that limiting his access in the house when alone, calm energy and gentle words are really effective. A treat when a leave and another when I get back helps too :) This week he has been chew free :)
