His story

This is Frodo. He is a male Basenji. He has been coming to our kennel for about a year now. This Christmas his owner dropped him off for the holiday. While visiting family in Nevada, regrettably, his owner passed away. Frodo is now left in the hands of us with assistance by relatives. However, the family is unable to keep him. They would like to find a new, loving partner for Frodo. There are no fees in adopting him. He is recently neutered. Frodo is an energetic boy and is only a year old. He is currently up to date on all his vaccines. This little guy is a silly character. Loves to play and never slows down. We take great care of him here at Creekside and would love to meet with anyone who is interested in adopting this adorable pup. If you are interested please contact us here at Creekside Pet Boarding; 805-481-7711

Have you contacted BRAT (Basenji Rescue and Transport)? They may be able to help out.

Most all the Basenjis in So. California (this is closer to So. Cal, then Northern Ca) would go to MedFly

Oh, what a sad story…i hope this little fella finds a forever home soon.

And yes, very sad… wonder who the breeder is?

@tanza:

And yes, very sad… wonder who the breeder is?

he's a cute little boy and I wondered the same thing. i'd guess the kennel facility does not know who the breeder is. it's nice for them to care for him until a home is found.

Since the ad said that the family was working with the shelter, wonder if they could find his papers and find the breeder?

Has anyone emailed Karen yet???

BRAT was notified at least. Yeah wish someone could get the breeder name. 😞

I talked to the kennel just now, and they have decided to place the dog with someone who owns Basenjis. I dont know if it's a BRAT foster or an individual ? But the guy said it wasn't a organization… I mentioned the forums in case the new owners wanted some backup.. anyone else get more info ?

It sounds like a very conscientious kennel, wanting to see the dog get a really good home, not just 'any home'.

Looks like your connection to Basenji Forums was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
