Introducing…(drum roll)...KIARA (and sidekick Ed)

Hi. I'm Ed, and Kiara is my almost-2-yr old red/white basenji girl. I'll put up a photo soon, but you pretty much know what she looks like. She is hoping to get a male companion basenji soon – right now I'm trying to work with BRAT to find her ideal buddy. Also, if any NE Illinois basenji owners (slaves?) want to get together for a basenji play date at a local dog park, drop me a line!

Just wanted to say welcome. I'm also working with BRAT to try and find number two. Probably a girl, our red and white is a boy, Deke. Good luck in your search.

Hi and welcome to the forum. Please keep us posted on the possibly adoption!!!

Welcome to the forum! Looking forward to some pictures and hearing about a new buddy for Kiara!

Thanks for the welcomes! I've applied now for 2 different basenjis from BRAT, hoping one will come through. I haven't heard anything in a while so I'm a little disheartened, but I have heard that it can take some time with them. And I'm kinda worried they will look at my apartment living as not suitable for a Basenji, although Kiara doesn't seem to mind. I walk her a lot–a mile and a qtr each morning plus 2 shorter PM walks--so she gets pretty good excersize (as do I!). Anyway, time will tell. We're keeping our fingers (or toes, in Kiara's case) crosssed.

I hope that this is not the case.. I know many, many B's that live in apartments and are totally happy…. and if they do.. well "shame" on them

Well I got a second basenji this past weekend, and he is just perfect. River is a beautiful tri-color and he's a true gentleman. I'm waiting for the real basenji in him to come out soon, but his foster owners say he really is that laid back. Nice! I haven't visited or posted in a long time so I'm going to browse for a while…

Awwwwww… look how sweet they are together. Welcome, River!

Is he a BRAT boy? I'd love to hear about how the transition is going. We have a girl who will be 3 next week, and are looking at a boy buddy for her. I've been wondering how you bring a new one into the house and how the Queen Bee reacts. Did you take her to meet him before you brought him home?

Can't wait for stories!

Congratulations! They are a pretty pair. How are they getting along?

Lovely..do tell us how they are doing.

Welcome back to the forum! Your new boy is certainly a handsome one! Glad it is working out so nicely for you 🙂

What a sweet pair you have there. Thank you so much for the pictures. How are they enjoying eachother. After having two now I have decided never to have just one dog again, it's so nice for hterm to have company. 😃

Congratulations on your new addition.

Congrats on a successful adoption. I hope your Bs are both enjoying their playmate! Welcome to the forum!

Thanks for all the nice comments everyone! They are getting along wonderfully. I took them to an off-leash park this evening and they wore each other out playing chase. Kiara surprised me at how well she welcomed River into her home. I think she was dying for a playmate. She even shares her food with River, which shocked me – she usually acts like she wants to kill any other dog that gets near her food bowl. So I'm pleased as can be with having two. A BRAT volunteer is coming over Saturday to observe how things are going ... wish me luck.
