Adopt Basie

Female Pit Bull Terrier


Hi, my name is Basie!  I’m named after a famous Jazz Musician! Aren’t I the cutest dog ever?? I like to think so!  My foster parents say I’m the sweetest and most gentle little girl with a lot of spunk – but maybe you should find out for yourself!  After all, how many “tri-pods” have you seen that can run faster than you!

I haven’t always had 3 legs, and my life didn’t exactly start out as I had hoped, but I don’t have any complaints these days.  I mean, maybe I could use a few more belly rubs and scratches behind my ear, but other than that I’m just a happy girl with a lot of love to give! 

A few of my favorite things are long walks (sometimes I like to sprint), playing fetch with my tennis ball, and being around people who love me.  Do you have kids? YAY because I absolutely LOVE kids of all ages! I also love being around other dogs, as long as they’re not too aggressive.  I’m a lover not a fighter!

Well enough about me, we should meet in person and see if we hit it off! But I’m warning you, you’re probably going to fall in love! Apply to adopt me, Basie, today!
