I want to introduce you to Moby, our new little Basenji mix. He showed up on Petfinder when Ren, our female Basenji, died. I go through Petfinder, and other adoption sites, every day looking for Basenjis in shelters; it's a job I do for BRAT. Of course I want to save all the high mixes I come across, but when I saw this one, something said that he really was for me. He was in Oakland California, but with the help of a few California BRAT members who pulled, fostered, and got him on a plane, he made the 13 hour trip to Alberta.
His name was Q-Ball at the shelter, but I changed it. He's absolutely a wonderful little dog… all 13 pounds of him! He gets along with all the dogs here, and fit very well into the pack. This dog has got to be he cutest little guy (and I'm not really about cute -- that's for Disney) and he's so cool! The shelter said he was Basenji/Chihuahua but if I was a betting man (and I'm not because I'm a female) I would put my money on Basenji/Jack Russell Terrier. I'm waiting for DNA results.
I'd send pictures but I don't have any yet, so this is his Petfinder page: http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/26661769?rvp=1
