Basenjis on Craigslist
  • 0
  • Out of curiosity, I searched basenjis on Craigslist and was amazed at what I found and sadly, some of their owners are selling these dogs and appear to have little knowledge about them. Here are some of the links. One I believe says a basenji/terrier mix, but it appears to be purebred basenji to me.

  • First Basenji's

    I sure hope more of the forum reads this and a home will be found before the current owners dump them at the pound or something…..What a shame.

  • I know, that's why I thought I would post them here. I feel so badly for those poor dogs.

    Thanks for posting this. Do contact BRAT as well, sigh. Those dogs need to fall into "soft" hands.

    If any of these are still intact, they need to be rescued ASAP since breeding season is coming!

    Sigh, I hope they aren't used to make more "pets". Groan! I will send out a prayer for them all.

  • Sharron and other rescue folks - I totally admire you. I can't even look at these links - my heart breaks for these dear souls.

  • You know, I hadn't thought to contact BRAT, however, I will do that and forward the links to them.

    Thank you dmarie, please, contact BRAT when you see these types of ads. They might already know about the dog, but in case they don't…..
    Fran, I also dispare about so many more b's seeming to be needing homes now. Sigh.

  • This is the season for rescues…
    the rain will start up and people won't want to walk their dogs.. nor house-train them... and they will get tired of the not-so-little-puppy.
    Sad sad sad

  • I did hear back from BRAT. They knew of 3 out of the 4 basenjis. 3 have been contacted and the one they didn't know about was going to be contacted today. Hopefully there will be a good outcome for all.

  • It rains here soooo much, but I squeeze in a walk as early as 5 am and sometimes not until 9 pm just to make sure my doggies get their walk in. When I hear about people that are moving somewhere that doesn't allow pets, it makes me crazy. Seriously, you take on the responsibility of caring for a pet so you find somewhere where they can live with you. And don't talk to me about not having time- I have a husband, three children, 2 dogs, 1 cat, and a full time college course load. And yes, everyone gets fed, walked, cleaned, homework done, and I still get just enough time to sleep. Sorry for the rant, but I live on a Navy Base and I see families leave their pets tied up in their backyards, stick them in the garage, or leave them behind when they move all the time- which is how we ended up the cat :(

    Yes, its seems to be the way, just leave something if its not convient. My family was Navy, 30 and as I am 60 old, you know that was a ways back. We took our ****er to Hawaii 2 times. Yes, expensive, but part of the family. Wish folks were more responsible, sigh, but times seem to be changing.

    what was deleted is spanial, co*ker…laugh.
