We are very excited to be able to officially be members of the forum with our very own tri-colored basenji girl. We rescued Kona on Saturday from the Humane Society and she is sweet as can be. However she is definitely demonstrating her basenji traits already. They told us she is 8 months old, but we think she is closer to one year. She also appears to be housebroken, but we are keeping a watchful eye. She already has me wrapped around her little paw.
She is not eating too much right now, but also has an upset tummy so we are hoping that clears as she gets settled. Thanks to the advice here we bought her some Merricks and she has eaten some, but not a full serving yet. She is sleeping a lot, but playing too and she enjoys her walks.
The other thing to note is they told us that she is hearing impaired, but we think she just has selective hearing but will talk to the vet this week about it.
Anyway, I am sure we will have lots of stories to share over the years and look forward to meeting other basenji parents both online and in the Tampa area.
