28+ basenjis need rescued

She was one of the toughest to handle.

Its good she has a kind basenji smart home to go to then.
She will figure out quickly that people and being inside is a good thing.

No, these 2 girls are not preggo. One had had puppies awhile ago.
Zena was one of the brindles, but not the fear biter, but looked very simila- sisters? She was the thinnest dog I have ever seen. I think she weighed in at 14lbs. But had such a kind sweet face and hopeful eyes. (*It is such a good thing Liz did not tell me to just keep her, i would not have been able to say no)
Both girls were very sweet and relaxed after holding them for awhile. Zena even sniffed and licked my cheek, which is a great sign.
I cant wait to see how they turn out.
It was heartbreaking, but also so inspiring. So many people coming together to help get these dogs to good homes. I keep thinking that in a short while these dogs will be so happy and healthy and loved and get to enjoy being spoiled and loved on.–get to enjoy being dogs.
Both girls will be fostered by a wonderful home.

Thanks so much for the post.
I am so proud to be a member of the BRAT family.

Aren't you!? Me too.
I just love being a part of such a great group, even if I am only a very small part. Makes me feel like I am part of something "bigger".
I cant do alot, but I do what I can. I cant really foster, but I like to drive and enjoy "my dogs" for the few hours I have them.
To any one wanting to get envolved–-do. Even if you dont think you can do a whole lot, do what you can. It really makes a huge difference in the lives of these dogs (both from the PMs and regular ones) and in the lives of the very excited people that are waiting to adopt a special BRAT.

I am fostering Zena and Zora. Christie helped me get them from Liz to MI on Thursday. They are doing well. They are scared, but eating well and seem to understand that the papers are for going potty. They've even begun chewing on a few toys and enjoying a couple of treats. We had to get them new collars as the metal was causing a rash to Zena's neck. They both have pretty new pink collars and new Fido Fleece coats. They have VERY thing fur and dry skin. They are so precious. We managed to get a few pix too today. I'll make them a dogster page too. We are going to the vet on the 5th to see how they are and to do a pre-op for getting them both spayed. Maybe Zora will have put on some weight by then!

Thanks for all the support. Christie, you're wonderful! Thanks for your help in the transport.

We have Susie the r/w 7 mo old female. She is an absolute doll. Eating great and full of energy. She has been going potty outside very well. She slept with my son last night and he adores her. He is not going to want to let her go. Her spay is scheduled for the 10th so we will get that taken care of. I have a question for those of you who have intact females. She is spotting a little blood. Do I need to do anything? Is she going into a heat cycle? Is it ok to spay her now?

She is soft as silk and eating up all the attention. She will adapt to spoiled life very well. She loves playing with toys and has started to gut all the ones that are still ungutted from Dash. We are trying to get her used to the doggie door so she can go in and out at her will while we are at work. Our neighbors beagle pup spends most of her day here as well so she will have plenty of playmates. Liz did a perfect job matching this girl to us for a foster.

If she is spotting blood, then yes she is probably coming into season. Some vets will do a spay when the dog is in season and some won't. It is a more complicated procedure when they are in season because everything is engorged with blood.

here is a pic of our foster.

What a cutie…how is she doing? Sounds like she is in heat...

@dash:

here is a pic of our foster.

What a doll… and I would agree, she most likely is coming in season... and most of the Vets I know will not spay until it is over.... as Lisa points out, it is a much tougher surgery for both the Vet and the bitch....

What an adorable face!!!!!

I would definitely wait to spay her unless you must because of having an intact dog. It is certainly a more dangerous surgery when they are pregnant or in heat because of how much more blood is in and flowing to the uterus.

Zora is the brindle girl and yes, she is very scared, but is beginning to come up an smell hands, legs, hair. She enjoys milk bones and treats. She also enjoys fish oil. Zena is the one that recently had pups (8 weeks ago or so). She is coming around, but slowly. They are both great about going potty on the papers. They HATE the leash, but we'll work on that later. It seems that it'll be a long road, but they'll get there in time. We're patient and willing. They are so adorable. I'll post pix soon.

Susie is soo soo cute! I'm so happy she is doing so well.

Oh it is great to hear from you. Those girls were just precious. I cant wait to see their dogstar page and see how they blossom.
You are wonderful for taking them in and loving them.

Ooh, Im sorry, I thought it was the other way around with the names. I thought Zena was the skinny one and Zora was the bigger gal. Sorry, still give them good pet for me 🙂

Well…our dogs are not intact but my neighbors American Eskimo is. They assured me he would only be out to go potty and then back inside unless they are watching him. Susie hasn't quite figured out the doggie door so I am hopeful she will stay inside. I will call the vets office.

The breeders on the forum can help you with any/all the issues that you have questions on, re your girl coming into season.
Hugs dear.
I sure don't envy you.

Have any of the breeders on this list used Lasers re spay surgery?
I understand that cuts down on blood loss a great deal..but have never had it used on one of my dogs.
