New Info on Mr Baroo
  • 0
  • When we were contacted by BRAT that they had a 3 to 5 yo male for adoption we jumped at the chance. Upon bringing him into our home we immediately realized that he was, if anything, not even a year old, totally puppyish acting. Well, he's been with us for about 4 months and although he has all the characteristics of a Basenji he is a mix, and a wonderful mix. To be totally honest he is beginning to look like a small Dalmation but with all the outward appearences of a B, upright ears, red and white, white chest blaze, tight curled tail with a white tip, 4 white feet, wrinkled forhead, the whole package. He loves to run and play chase with Bitty his 6 yo 'sister', insists on sleeping under covers with me at night and is lead baratone in the baroo chorus. So, he may not be pure bred Basenji, he is all Basenji to us.:p

    Talking Bitty gets a buddy
    Hi Y'all. It has been a long while since we have posted here. Our old forum name was BittysDaddy. But that has changed, as you can see. About a month ago Liz, with BRAT, called and asked if we coiuld take a 3 yo red male to foster.

    Okay you got this dog in Jan. Sorry but six mos ago if you are right, the dog would only have been a 5 or 6 mo old puppy… not only BRAT but your vet would have been able to tell by teeth and other things the difference between an adult dog and a 6 mo old puppy. Really. How much, pound wise and height, has he actually grown in this 6 mos? I wouldn't be surprised if the dog was younger than 3... rough living can make them appear older. But I'd be pretty shocked that BRAT, the shelter, the vets who saw the dog before you got it, and your vet all mistook a 5 or 6 mo old pup for a mature dog.

    So I looked at your album and I am falling out. RED DOGS, lots of red dogs, lol. I love it. He looks basenji to me, save the not curled tail in a pic or 2. But what wonderful pics of all your gang. However, dude, get some color in there. And to think my husband complained I only had red dogs or black dogs. LOL of course now we have Cara, a tri. Oh wait, red and black in one package.. does that not count as a different color though?
