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.
MO-Independence-10 Month Old Female B Mix-On Petfinder Classifieds
The ad does not have a picture nor states the size. Rescued at a kill shelter in Oct 2011 but owned by an elderly person who cannot keep up with her-too active. She was told it was a Lab mix but after researching thinks she is a B mix. This girl can climb a chain link fence and can jump on a picnic table in a single jump! Sounds like a BRAT foster I had a few years ago. She has to keep her on a cable because of the climbing and does not think it is fair. It is obvious she does not want to return the dog to the kill shelter. She is spayed/neutered, house trained and up-to-date on vaccines! She gets along with her larger dog.
The dog is located in a suburb of Kansas City MO/KS-approximately 10-15 miles away. Can anyone in the area contact the owner and/or go see what this girl looks like?
