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.
TX-Houston-Female PB Pups-1 Tri & 1 Black & White F-In Rescue
These pups are 11 weeks old.
I have not contacted the rescue to see if they are still available.
Here is their Petfinder page:
This one has been up for a while. I finally took the plunge and inquired about them just a couple days ago. This is the response I got:
"The Black and white girl is the only one I have left at this point.
The guy with the Mother dog bred her to a neighbors male Basenji against his
wife's wishes. When the pups were about 4 1/2 weeks old she threatened to
take the babies to the pound. They were too messy. He called me and I took
them in here. I met the Female she was a brindle and she was definitely a
Basenji. The neighbor with the male kept one of the pups. Never met the male
but was told he was a tri colored male.
Only other Basenji proof I have is that my 3 year old female Basenji adopted
the litter and has been taking care of them since they have been allowed out
with the rest of the dogs. :)"

How sad is that, thank goodness for the person that took them… and yes.. at 4 weeks they get MESSY!.... The one Tri, look to me like a Trindle instead of a clear Tri. And that would make sense since if the mother was Brindle.

I thought the same thing- trindle!
And yes, so sad…people are really just stupid...simply put
I would have suggested the low cost spay/neuter clinic for the dam-only $65 and for the sire only $50 if both are under 30 lbs.! I am glad they were not taken to the shelter-high kill rates in Houston.
