Hello

I'm a past keeper of a Basenji, well actually he tolerated me:) He's been gone about six years now and am finally thinking about bringing another into my life!
I've been lurking around here and some other sites for a while and I thought I'd catch up here and see just what the state of the Basenji world was like these days!

Regards, Dave

Welcome Dave! Can't wait to hear of your adoption adventures!! đŸ™‚

Dave, welcome! Have you considered the idea of adopting a rescue via Basenji Rescue and Transport (BRAT) (www.basenjirescue.org)??)

Glad you're back to "the wonderful world of Basenjis". This is a great place to learn , get advice, and just chat.

The BRAT org. is new to me and I'll definately check with them!
Our Basenji was a rescue of sorts, I got him from a family (@10 months old) that was not equiped to handle any dog let alone that crazy little guy! Boy-O-Boy was he a handful at first! But over the next ten or so years we came to an understanding:D Best dog I've ever had, went everywhere with me!

He was so goofy - scared to death of ants and spiders but would fearlessly chase the neighbors Rott. out of the yard, then yodel with pride at his dominance!
At night he'd HAVE TO sleep under the covers and curl up by my feet and everytime I'd move he'd growl, like I was disturbing HIM! Man I miss him!

Anyway, Enough time has passed that I need another Basenji challenge!

Hello and welcome to the forum. I hope you decide to rescue/adopt and wish you luck in doing so. I look forward to hearing all about the adoption and dog!!

Welcome Dave! Keep us posted…! This is a great site for Basenji owners, past, present or future!

Dave hello, I also am new to this site. I had my frist Basenji for sixteen years and lost her last year. I could only go for about a month before getting my next Basenji. I really love this breed I have two now. Good luck in your search for your next Basenji.
