Another rescue

We added another rescue to our family. We adopted Sawyer from BRAT about 1 month ago. He was listed on BRAT as "Benji" but that name didn't fit him. He is one year old. He is potty trained but not leash trained. He is so much bigger and stronger than Wyatt was when I was training him, it is definitely a work out trying to walk him. He definitely has more strong Basenji traits than Wyatt. He can jump the 4 foot fence (we are accelerating our plans to have a 6 foot installed for the entire yard), he grooms himself, Wyatt, me, strangers…..:p and he is very vocal. In fact if he is around a barking dog, he will make bark ing noises. Wyatt on the other hand is almost completly silent. The only sound he has made is when I took Sawyer for a walk and left Wyatt home and I thought I heard a rooster crowing.....but it was Wyatt😕
Wyatt and Sawyer get along very well but can be a handful, which I completely expected (Wyatt is almost 8 months and Sawyer is 1 year).
I am looking forward to the challenges and rewards!

I am wishing you good luck. It is nerve wracking waiting to hear if you are approved. I was so nervous that they wouldn't get along when they met, but they did so well together.

What beautiful dogs! Thank you for adopting them!

Congratulations on both your kids! They are beautiful. The only problem I've encountered with rescues (I've had 2 B rescues and a german shepherd mix) is that I tend to me too permissive with them because every time I look in their little eyes–I think about the time they had to spend in a shelter. The two Bs I have now were actually quite obedient when I adopted them--and I'm really trying hard to keep them that way 🙂

Looks like your connection to Basenji Forums was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
