Please go to Basenjirescue.org and join as a member. It will show you are serious about helping. BRAT always needs good foster homes. A home visit will be required (not sure if that is possible at this time considering this COVID-19 crisis). It is especially helpful if you have basenji experience. Not always, but very often, a basenji coming into rescue has special needs (i.e., behavioral, medical, etc.). It is good to ask yourself if you and your family are willing to deal with that. Fostering is hard but it can also be a wonderful and rewarding thing to do.
OH-Findlay-Senior Male B Mix Needs Home
I thought I had posted this earlier. I had problems posting a picture previously but thought the text took. Sorry for the delay.
This senior male black & white B mix needs a home. I estimate him to be 8-10 years old. I believe he weighs 25-30 lbs. He is in a private rescue shelter but has been there since last year. I visited him a few weeks ago and I believe he is getting kennel stress. He marked quite a bit when I walked him but probably because most of the other dogs get walked in the same area. He could be mixed with a border collie or terrier. He was originally in a foster home but he and the other male got into a disagreement.
I do not know if he is still available. Please contact the rescue for information. You can also contact me at email@example.com.
Here is his petfinder page:
I could help with transport as the rescue is about an hour away from me. It is located just off I-75 between Toledo and Dayton.
I am unable to post my picture as it is giving me a message stating that my submission could not be processed because a security token was missing. I have a feeling the picture may be too large.
Here is a picture that I took of Max. I think I have resized it properly.
Does BRAT know about him?
Oh, senior dogs of any breed just tug at my heart. Hope he finds his new family soon.
Yes, I sent an e-mail to Lori who handles the Basenji mixes and she sent an e-mail to the rescue. I did not see him listed under the Basenji mixes on the BRAT webpage though when I looked last week. Perhaps the rescue did not want to list him there.
I would like him to at least go to a foster home.
