The Mod Dog of the Month runner up

Name: Mister Bascam

Breed: Italian Greyhound

Age: 11 months

Collar: Isabella martingale

More About Mister Bascam: "My husband and I had dreamed of having an Italian Greyhound for a long time, but couldn't justify the cost of buying one from a breeder. We ended up adopting 2 full sized ex-racing greyhounds instead, and years later we saw a notice on a greyhound email list that an Italian Greyhound (who's owner was a breeder, and going to prison for some reason!) was going up for adoption as an unregistered rescue. We immediately submitted our application and were lucky enough to be the first serious applicant of hundreds. We picked him up as a 6lb. puppy and we're so happy to call him our little pup. His name is from a cheesy line in an old Jerry Lewis movie: "Mister Bascam can't drive, he doesn't have a license!" -- in the movie, Mister Bascam is a dog. My husband was desperate to name our first male dog this name, so I finally caved in."

Mister Bascam's favorite things: His favorite toy is a ping pong ball and his favorite treat is peanut butter.
