Basil Patterdale DOB 2009 Weekend fost & Kens Basil needs a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk. Basil needs a terrier-aware family who are happy to retain him on an extender lead with his little muzzle on as he can get flustered with intrusive dogs or strangers. Basil needs to be an only pet with no children, with sensitive family to his needs. His fosterers will give a full handover. A terrier-proof garden without stepping stones, and exit management around the front door and gate is required, as with any Patterdale. Known background: Basil was found stray/abandoned & unclaimed within a council pound. Terrierrescue stepped forwards to offer a Rescue place and save Basil's life. Terrierrescue was asked to take Basil, as he will suit a Patterdale home who 'gets' the 'working-type' terrier mindset. Basil is neutered, chipped and vax'd. He is currently in boarding kennels and foster weekends in Guildford. Advert Basil is a great Patterdale who is alert, studious and intent. He walks well on a lead and needs a low dog density area to be able to relax and enjoy the hedgerow. "Basil spent the weekend out of kennels and was such fun and great company as always. He met up with his spaniel friend who has a calming presence on Basil and helps him greet other dogs well. He still hasn't quite grasped play time yet with other dogs but gave his best attempt with a friendly pug. Basil sometimes gets a bit over excited but is always alert and responds well to his commands. A firm "enough" gets him back listening and he really does love his commands. He walks very well to "heel" and "wait" and then "ok" when he comes to a busy road stops him in his track and also works a treat when harnessing him up or feed time. After busy day times out and about sniffing and exploring the commons he had a well deserved break in the pub. He loves the attention he gets and he does get a lot, people mistake this little boy for a puppy on so many occasions, its easy to see why with his happy go lucky character and bundles of energy" Basil is a ?6 year old Patterdale with a fawn fleck to his black-brown coat. He has a little scarring on his muzzle where he has at some point 'gone to ground'and would do again if let off lead: Terrier = terra firma! An extender lead will keep Basil safe, yet allow him to enjoy the smells of his walk. Basil has no road sense. He is easy to handle and has no edge to him but care is required around small furries, puppies running up to him, etc. Basil is a Patterdale down to his paw tips.
