About Basil

8 and over


Basil is an endearing lad who proves that age is just a number! He still has plenty of energy and love to share with his new family! Basil is fond of a tasty treat which will come in handy for his further training. He also enjoys adventurous sniffy walks, so is on the lookout for a family with the enthusiasm and time to invest in his walks. Basil can take a little time to warm up to someone new but when he does, he enjoys some gentle fuss and attention and is sure to make a great sofa buddy!

Type of home needed

Basil is 11 years old and can live with adults only and potentially another well-matched, calm dog. He cannot live with other pets but is housetrained. Basil will need someone around throughout the day to keep him company as he isn't used to being left alone much. But with some support and training from his new family his leaving hours could potentially be built to 1-2 in the future. Basil's new home would be best situated in an area that's not too busy and although he would benefit from a garden it is not essential if his family can take him out frequently enough for walks.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Loughborough Rehoming Centre in Leicestershire.

The first step to rehoming from us is to complete our online application form. We’ll review your application and if we think you could be a good match for the dog, we’ll give you a call to chat in more detail.

When reviewing applications, we're looking at how closely your lifestyle matches the needs of the dog. If we have lots of strong matches, then we'll start with the family that applied first.

We may arrange a virtual home check to find out more about you, your lifestyle, and the home you can offer. We may also make an appointment for you to come and meet a dog at the centre.

Start your online application now.

We aim to respond to all rehoming applications within five working days. If you have not heard from us within five working days, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful this time.
