CO-Denver-2 PB 6 Yr. Old R & W Basenjis-On Craigslist-Free to Good Home

They look to be a male and a female and need to be in a home with no other animals. Could someone in the area contact the owner? I believe there is a Basenji rescue in CO.

Here is the ad:

I let Peggy from Colorado Basenji Rescue know about the ad.

thanks, i forwarded this on to colorado basenji rescue.

Peggy hadn't seen the ad but she did know the woman, apparently she did not pass Peg's home inspection about 7 years ago and subsequently got 2 pups from a BYB. The woman now feels "Basenjis should never have been domesticated". She describes her Basenjis as lazy, they will not learn, and they won't stay off the furniture. She also doesn't want any help from CBR. I don't know how some people's brains work.

And sadly this woman owns a doggy daycare. Hopefully these pups will find a good home where they don't have to stay off the fur-niture.

Wonder if she got the Basenjis from Phil (don't remember is last name) in Colorado that is a BYB?

If they are free to good home, why does she not want them to go to Basenji rescue where the people know the breed? She obviously did not research the breed before buying them! I am not sure about Basenjis as lazy as my dogs will chase animals like crazy.

I cannot remember his last name but he lived in Cripple Creek, CO. Anyone know if Phil is still breeding? I believe he had a dog related to my Arnie. It went back to Bentley Rumble Dust, Arnie's littermate. Does anyone have a dog from this breeder? I would be interested in seeing the pedigree.

Yes, he is still breeding, just check out PuppyFind.com

Wow.. I always find these kinds of situations SO sad. Someone does not research a breed and then winds up giving them up. Were the parent dogs Fanconi tested? I would hate to think that these two are being given up because they may now be needing the protocol. 😞 I just look at those two wonderful faces and it brings me near to tears. They deserve better.

I have not looked at the ads on puppyfind.com for about 4-6 weeks.
