This was sent to Karen at Medfly, who has retired from rescue. She sent it to me yesterday and I told her I'd post it here. The dog in question needs a home with a person/couple/family that has previous Basenji experience. He's young, very energetic and destructive. With the right kind of training and encouragement, all of those are manageable. But it's going to take time and commitment. PM me for Skye's phone and/or email.
Good morning, my name is Skye and I work for kern county animal services. I was reaching out to you to see if you could help us out with a Basenji we currently have in our shelter, that’s been here since August of 2021. He was placed with a foster first, then ended up in our sick kennel, once he was finally adoptable he was adopted by a veteran. He was sadly returned a few days ago, according to the adopter he destroyed their home.
Since he has been here he has gone by Benji the Basenji, he is 1yrs 6mths of age, male, neutered and microchipped. We have had him in a play group with other male and female dogs and he did amazing, got along with everyone. He is a staff favorite here at the shelter, we just don’t want this awesome dogs life to consist of a cycle of shelter and temporary homes. He is a great, sweet, smart dog he just needs a little work.
If you would be interested in meeting Benji or even helping us find a home for Benji it would be greatly appreciated. I will attach some pictures of Benji the Basenji.
