Basenji of the Week (2-11 Feb) Double Feature Sizi In CA and Rick in CO

I just realized I forgot to post the basenji of the week last week, so this week I am featuring two, and with out further ado here they are…..

First there is Sizi in California, with Medfly basenji rescue, he is listed on the left side of the available Bs, 7th down (more info to follow on him)

Sizi, about three, came in from a pound very shy and nervous. He has made tremendous improvement and each day gets better. He will be a great addition to a quiet home.

Next…

We have Rick with Colorado Basenji Rescue Rick is the 4th one down.

My name is Rick, and I do believe I am as handsome as they come! My foster mom calls me her "bundle of joy." I will wink and flirt at you, and I love to snuggle. I clearly have no lack of self esteem; nope, no problem there!

Rick is a 10-month-old, neutered, male Basenji with an endless amount of energy. He will need a home that can provide him with daily exercise and basic training skills. He is a very intelligent little guy with selective listening skills. Rick would thrive in a home with another young dog.

Rick is house-trained, and will stay in a crate when his foster mom is away. A home with a securely fenced yard is a must. Rick has not had experience with cats.

Oh, both are lovely.
I have not had a b/w b yet.
Maybe one of these days.
Fingers crossed that they both find their forever homes.

That was so sad to read on the Co rescue site of the one that was left in the yard and the family moved away and was there for 5 DAYS in single digit weather until they found him…... I don't think I will ever understand people

Yes, unfortunately there has been a rash of stupidity (for lack of a better word) in Colorado. Here's an article about my other (secondary) breed:

Sensitive readers, you are warned.

No everyone should read… and then they might understand why we are so outspoken about breeding and buying from BYB's and/or Pet Stores... again, thank goodness in No. Cal, we have very, very few pet stores that sell puppies...

That poor dog now has a new loving family.
I am so glad of that.
My heart goes out to those who have yet to be rescued.
Sigh.

Based on an email I recieved, it sounds like Rick has been placed.

YeAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
