I just received this info from So Cal Basenji Rescue–this poor little 14 yr old needs a home:
This little basenji mix girl is currently at the East Valley Shelter on Vanown in Van Nuys. Her owner died and there was nobody to take her. She was born 10/10/1993 and has been at the shelter since 12/21/07. Her name is Trixie, she is in kennel #9 and her id number is A128894. She is spayed and a sweetheart. She is in a kennel with other dogs and seems not to have any issues with them.
If you can help this baby out or know of anyone who can please contact the shelter and let them know. She was a one owner dog until the owners death.
