Gracing the pages of Southbank Local News isn’t this Jack Russell’s only brush with fame.

Seven-year-old Basil is the star of his own Instagram account, which owners Mel and Georgie Philip say has, unfortunately, become dormant after its password was mentally misplaced.

“Basil loves fame and attention,” Mel said. “He loves that – and climbing trees.”

Despite having the inverse markings for a classic pure-bred Jack Russell, this adventurous little buddy is as excitable and energetic as any other member of his breed.

The sisters adopted Basil when their father – his original owner – passed away. “He’s a pretty special family member,” Mel said. “He’s just a great dog. He’s pretty much my shadow. He follows me everywhere.”

Mel said Basil did have a bit of an attitude however. “He’s a little bit of a snob when it comes to making friends at the dog park,” she said.

According to his owners, Basil’s attitude does not extended to his two-legged friends.

“He’s great with people, especially kids. He just lets them climb all over him.”

For more pictures of this perfect pooch, Basil can be found under the Instagram name _basil_brush_
