Hello World! Meet Parsley and Basil <3 This sister-brother duo would really prefer to find a home together - but we may consider a separate placement into a home with another canine friendly dog to show either Parsley or Basil the ropes. We know a large, bonded pair of dogs may be difficult to place together in Vancouver -but they are spayed and neutered already- so a home from further away that's willing to come meet them would also be great! Having basically just arrived at the shelter, these two are understandably afraid. They had a very small world in their previous home, only really knowing one person and never having experience going for walks or leaving the property. Parsley has already started coming out of her shell, and she is sweet as can be! Parsley is nervous meeting new people, but after a few introductions and some really yummy treats, she is pretty quick to win over! We can already see how this young lady will blossom in the right home, and we're sure with a home that's willing to help build her confidence that she is going to love the spoiled dog life! Parsley is still learning that walking on leash is a fun activity, and her future home should be prepared to start with a small repeated loop for walks until she is feeling more confident. Because Parsley is nervous of fast motions and loud sounds, we know she and her brother would do best in an adult only home. We do not know how the pair feels about small animals or cats. Together is when we really see Parsley and Basil shine. They clearly adore each other, often giving each other kisses, jumping and playing together, and feeling more confident approaching strangers when together. We sincerely cannot wait to find someone looking for an adorable goofy pair of dogs, because these two are going to be such a great duo once given the opportunity to live a happy-dog life! If you are interested in this pair, feel free to call the West Vancouver SPCA to ask questions, or fill out an application on our website. They will be available for viewing for serious adopters from TUES-SUNDAY 12pm-3pm daily.
