Basil, our handsome young puppy was rescued from the LaPorte shelter after an owner release who said he had “too much energy” for her. His foster family immediately fell in love and decided he needed to stay forever. Thank you, Salch Family for giving Basil a wonderful home to grow up in.
Basil is a handsome young puppy, approximately 5-6 months old and on the smaller side (around 20lbs – we were told he was much bigger). Pulled from the LaPorte shelter after an owner release who said he had “too much energy” for her. He’s now safe in a STAR foster home and will be evaluated. He may be available for adoption late June.
DISCLAIMER: This dog is obviously not a purebred standard Australian Shepherd. He is a mini… We were given incorrect information.. However because he came from a shelter, we will not return him but adopt him out to a great home.
