Many people are aware and hoping for a safe return. Are you posting flyers all over, and in the paper? Get neighborhood kids involved too, and just stay out there, looking (preferably with another basenji). If she has been seen, try traps baited with her favorite foods (KFC h as been used successfully).
Very things are as frustrating as a lost basenji!

Mezza's mom, Emily, just called me and there was a sighting on Thursday. She was running around a youth camp near where she originally got lost. So Emily went out last night and put up what posters she could before leaving for China this morning. I may go out and look some today. I'll keep you all posted. Thanks for the prayers and suggestions!
From another list, a woman who's basenji was recently lost for a week advised to add to posters and adds that people nearby should check garages and sheds, her dog was found hiding in someone's garage. Posters, and lots of people out looking, especially if you can take basenjis along to try and attract her. Lost dogs get totally freaked out and often won't come to their owners when called.
Animal control may be able to supply you with live traps.
Keep looking for her!
Don't give up hope; I thought one of my other dogs was dead earlier this year, (he's a deaf staffy); he was lost during the week of the blizzard… I said many prayers, and I live in a farming community, w/the help of a wonderful friend, and many prayers Jack made it home safely... a little thin, raw paw pads, but he came home alive (and yes the fence was fixed). I'll keep ya's in my prayers.
