Jaco, little brother to Juniper

  • My girlfriend and I rescued a 17 week old male brindle puppy given up to Colorado Basenji Rescue by a couple who couldn't handle him. They got him from a puppy mill in Missouri or Kansas. He's joining our 16 month old brindle female who's showing him the ropesโ€ฆand who's boss. Despite his unfortunate background Jaco is doing great in the right home, a forever home. Juniper and Jaco have become two peas a pod. They're not actually related but don't tell them that.


  • Two sweetpeas, how cute they are, Jaco is lucky being a puppy mill puppy having Juniper to guide him, they look like lots of fun, enjoy your podpeas.

  • They look adorable together. Rescued dogs do so well when there is another dog to guide them. Congratulations on the new addition to your dog family. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  • They've been together two weeks but its the start of a lifetime for these two young Basenjis.

  • how sweet. I got a silken windhound puppy for xmas and Zest! my 7 year old basenji princess was like "YOU GOT ME A PUPPY FOR CHRISTMAS!!!!" and was so excited. I did not have the heart to tell her I got ME a puppy for Christmas. ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm surprised the tree survived, but the ornaments did travel up the tree a bit. She tends to be very indulgent with him and has only recently started to correct him. (he's now 7 months)

  • @Coloradical:

    Boy do they ever look happy together. ๐Ÿ™‚ What a joy to see.

  • What cuties! Congrats.

    Agile.. congrats on the silken. They look like small borzoi to me in pictures, have never met one. You have to share pictures!

  • Thanks DDS. Borzoi were used in the creation of the breed. Devon, my silken, can be seen on Dec 30th here:


    love the pic of him under the tree. He's made a nice addition to the family here. Someday I'd like to get another brindle basenji, but just wasn't quite ready after loosing Digital my brindlewonderkid in August.

    Didn't mean to hijack. I think Coloradical has a pair of scheming troublemakers on his hands.

  • As my girlfriend says, "Boy will be boys".


  • What a pair! We have 2 sisters (one year between them) and it has been great from the beginning. They always have someone to run/play/snuggle with.

  • Utterly Adorable!

  • Cute pair. I think that's the first time I've seen a basenji so muddy.

  • Looking very relaxed and comfortable. Nice pics.

  • I was like awwwww so freaking sweet togetherโ€ฆ then I hit muddy legs. Bahahahaha. Obviously things are going well!

    I love the pic of Devon doing a high5.. did your basenji train this feat Agile?
