Hello, I have been searching for some time now for a Basenji to add to our "pack" (okay, our family). We have three children, and a small dog named Albert. My first dog ever was a Basenji so I definitely know what we're getting into We are an active-duty military family and live on a Navy Base just outside of New Orleans, LA, with a fenced yard for play, and just around the corner from the dog park. My husband is gone a lot but the rest of us are home. That being said, as we are a military family, we cannot afford an expensive dog. We have discounted veterinary care available to us on the base, and have unlimited love. If anyone has any information to provide, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
If the initial price of acquiring a dog is a concern, would you be willing to consider a rescue? BRAT has dogs of all ages, including young puppies, and I believe the max adoption fee they ask for young dogs is $375. A pup like this one, for example, might fit your family's needs. If not that dog specifically, you should keep an eye on the other available listings because it's frequently being updated. It doesn't hurt to fill out an application and let them know what you're looking for.
