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/PA-Lisbon-Young Female Basenji/Pharoah Hound Mix-In Shelter-URGENT
I e-mailed the shelter and she is still there. Here is what the shelter said about her: "She is approximately 10 months old and weighs 27 lbs. She likes everybody she has met so far-dogs and people." I figure she will probably not grow much bigger-just fill out.
I have been told that this is a high kill rural shelter. It is located approximately 35 miles east of Canton, OH, 30 miles south of Youngstown, OH and 60 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, PA. Please contact the shelter if you are interested!
Here is her Petfinder page:

She's very cute! Is it just me or does she look like a podengo?
I just noticed this ad on Craigslist. "Tabby" is a pretty red and white girl. Looks almost like a regular basenji, but with HUGE ears. She's at the Columbiana County Dog Pound in Ohio.

OMG did you read the note that she was scheduled to be put down last Wednesday. I hope someone picked her up. I have been having a very hard day and to read that brought tears to my eyes.
She is now fully sponsored to any rescue that takes her! I assume this means the $100 adoption fee is covered which includes her spay and vetting!
If anyone knows a rescue that could take her, please let them know!
Here is the information which is now on her Petfinder page:
