My young son and I would like to offer a home to a young Basenji or Basenji mix. Our rescued Basenji/Jack Russel Mix is 11 years old now, and starting to slow down. I am currently/recently unemployed. If there is a nearby dog in need, we have much love, patience, time, companionship & attention to give, but cannot offer much, monetarily speaking. We live in Sharpsburg, MD. If anyone within 4-6 hours distance knows of a suitable dog in need, please let us know. I am a dedicated, responsible pet owner, who spays/neuters & obtains recommended vaccinations and preventative medications for my pets, as well as dedicated time, exercise and grooming. We live off of the C&O Canal, along the Potomac River, the Appalachian Trail, and National parkland, lots of room to run, explore & play. We have a cat, rabbit, rat, and fish, besides our Daisy. Our Daisy was abused. I rescued her from a shelter at 6 months old, when she would only crawl to the nearest hiding place. She graduated to running to hide behind the toilet, and then, to being bold, but barking & fearing men in uniforms. Now, she defends the pets that she knows we accept, and attempts to repel all others. I have total faith that any other Basenji or mix would also have the aptitude for such intelligence.
I have to place my boy, he is residing in Indiana. I owned his mother, and he was born into my hands. I dearly hate having to find him a new home, but I now live in Korea, and am unable to bring him over like I thought I would. He is staying with my brother and his family right now, and I would like to place him soon. He is 5, neutered last year. Good with children and most other dogs. Write me and I will tell you more about Ansel.
