I live in AL, not near Abbeville, but I've got friends/family all over. I'll post it on Facebook and email an Alabama pet lost/found group that was established after the April 27th tornados.
TX-Conroe/Houston-Found Male R&W PB Intact-At Shelter
This boy was found 2 days ago. BRAT does know about him as someone posted him on BRAT-CHAT. He is in the Montgomery County Animal Shelter which is one county North of Harris County which is the county where Houston is located. I looked last night on different websites for a lost Basenji but no luck. He does have dewclaws.
I have not contacted the shelter to see if he is still there. I do not know if BRAT is going to get him when his stray hold is up. I do not know if the shelter checked for a microchip.
Here is his Petharbor page:
