Meet Basil!

As part of our series this week for National Dog Week and National Deaf Awareness Week - we would like you to meet Basil!

10-month-old Basil is amazingly intelligent and eager to please. He has already learned some touch commands, and he picked them up in just a few minutes. He can sit, lie down and come when you stomp your foot on the floor. He walks perfectly on the leash. He's so smart, he could be on TV! Basil needs someone who has a lot of time to spend with him, maybe someone who works at home or a stay-at-home mom (or dad).

Basil is currently being cared for by a foster family in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He is listed through the Deaf Dog Education Action Fund who provides education and funding for the purpose of improving and/or saving the lives of deaf dogs. They are a non-profit organization founded to speak on behalf of and assist in the betterment of life for deaf dogs everywhere.
