Hello from florida

Just wanted to say hello to all. I am new to the basenji "lifestyle" and look forward to leaning on the knowledge of the experienced owners. My B's name is chili, we call him chili dog, he is a male estimated by the vet to be no more than a year old.
He came to us from a friend who found him in a pretty desparate situation of life and death, he was found in the inter-coastal waterway here in florida with bloody paws from scratching at and trying to get up a sea wall(vet checked him out and he is very healthy).
So far he has been a great addition to our family, especially to my min-pin who lost his brother and play-mate this past year. I look forward to learning a lot and any hints are always welcome. Thanks for having us

Thank You for giving the Basenji a home. Welcome, hope the forum helps you with your new found friend! Pictures when you can…......enjoy!

Welcome to the forum and to the crazy "Basenji" lifestyle! Looking forward to hearing about your experience and maybe seeing some pictures!

How wonderful that chili dog was saved by you and your friend. I know you will see to it now that he knows he has won the "basenji lottery" and will have the pampered basenji life he deserves!

That is just great that you are giving Chili a loving home. Can't wait to see pictures 🙂 Welcome to the Forum.

Nice to know that we are not the only b owners in Florida!!! Sounds like yours was lucky!! How long have you had him?

welcome, this is a great place to get advice and tips, it helped me alot with various question on our B Mia, and now we are adding a second pup tomorrow! You'll your B will love the Florida weather, mine has tanning spots all over the house as well as outside lol.

Hello and welcome to the forum. So glad that you gave a basenji a good home. Hope to hear more and see pictures

Hi and welcome!! Thanks for rescuing Chili Dog!! Can't wait to see pics.

Wow, that is a dramatic rescue story. Chili is one lucky basenji to be alive and in a loving home. Welcome! We are in Tampa, are you near-by?

Welcome to the pack and kudos for rescuing Chili !
You'll find it fun (both the forum and raising a beastie).

Welcome!!! Please send up some warmth to the Northeast 😃 My Bs neeeeeed some heat!! :eek:

I have had him for 4 days, as soon as he feels better from his neutering I will definitely post some pics, I hope I'm in the right forum, based on my vets knowledge she is the one that says he is a b, except his ears dont stand up, maybe they will as he gets older. He sure does act like one, from what I've read. And yes I'm near tampa, in land o lakes.

Basenji ears come up when they are six weeks old.. so if your boy has floppy ears, likely a mix… but you are still welcome here... so hurry up and post some pictures!!!!:D

Hi! That was some rescue. Glad to hear Chili found a loving home.

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