We lost our beloved Lexi a month ago, leaving us with a hole in our hearts and our basenji mix boy without a companion. He has had a companion since birth and is lost without a playmate. I have applied to BRAT and Camp Basenji. I have gotten welcome emails from BRAT but nothing from Camp Basenji. There is a BRAT in Texas but he would not be a good fit for us. We are not looking for a senior dog having just lost our 16 year old. We are looking for a cuddler who is house trained and gets along with other dogs as we go to the dog park frequently as well as grand pup sit for our sons when they go on trips.
BRAT has a number of Basenjis who are not quite ready for adoption, make sure that you reply to BRAT's welcome email, let them know what you have just told the Forum. Have you checked Colorado Basenji Rescue http://www.coloradobasenjirescue.org/index.shtml they do have a young female.
You can contact nearby breeders to see if they have any older Basenjis (returns, failed show dogs, never going to be bred) in need of a home. The Basenji Club of America web site has breeder information by State but you should email Denise, the breeder contact, for additional breeder information.
