My name is Christine and I am the proud new owner of Ginger. I rescued her as she was trying to cross Highway 99 in Seattle, Washington and have fallen love with her. I dropped her off at the shelter nearby my house to see if she already had a family. After visiting her everyday and no one claiming her I finally got to take her home. Her release date was actually my birthday. I could not have had a better birthday gift! I am looking forward to having discussions with all of you, as I am sure I will have multiple questions.
Welcome Ginger and Christine. This is one of the best places for information about care and training of Basenjis. How old is Ginger? How long have you had Ginger? (Happy Birthday! btw) Kudos to you for rescueing Ginger. I imagine she is red and white. Hope you post some pictures of your "birthday gift". How sweet she must be.
Ginger is approxiamately 5-6 years old and is a beautifull red and white lady! I have had Ginger for less than one week, but if you count all the days I visited her at the shelter, 3 weeks. I will post some pictures as soon as I can. Well, I am actaully off. I am going to take Ginger fo a walk in the beautiful woodland area of the Northwest. Take Care!
Christine, our basenji was also found in traffic (in October). Initially we didnt think we could manage her, but with the support of Basenji chat members and our local basenji rescue, we have decided that we couldnt imagine life without her. She is so full of personality and is michievious like a 2 year old. You have gotten a great gift and cant wait to hear your stories! Best Wishes!!!
