Today I adopted a Basenji mix from my local shelter, who I've decided to name Loki! They think he is between 2-3 and he looks to be predominately Basenji. I've attached 2 photos so you guys can see what he looks like and judge for yourselves.
However, even though I am technically Loki's owner now, I can't take him home till after March 10th, which is when he is scheduled to be neutered. This gives me plenty of time to prepare but not much time to spend with him! I was wondering if you guys had any recommendations as to what I can do to prepare (crate size, food brand/type, and toy recommendations would all be helpful!) for him, and what I can do with him for the time being at the shelter.
Edit: Just though of another question: collar type! As you can see the shelter gave me a choke chain to take him out with but I was wondering what the general consensus is on those? Just for walks or not at all?
