San Diego - Basenji on Craig's list

I dearly hope a Basenji person or someone on the forum in So Cal can get him.

Does any know if the little guy on craiglist has found a home or not?

I emailed the person that advertised him today, he is still there. They got him from a pet store. I advised if they are willing to give him up to rescue to contact Karen at Medfly.

They said they are trying to find a home with a yard but no other reasons why they are giving him up other then he needs loads of attention.

The ad says "1 year old papers". He has papers? Hopefully they will call her. I will email Karen as a heads up. It's the usual but sad reason. They obviously didn't do any homework about the breed before getting him.

Pat I cannot email him for some reason but could you have him email me. We would like to speak with him. I am not sure if I allowed to post my email or not could you please let us know. Thank you.

You will need to send me an email with your email address since we can not post them here. If you go to my website you can link to my email address. Then I can give you their direct email that he answered from.

Pat I had the same problem with your email as his. I will try to have my daughter look at this evening. Ever since this thing went down and got back up some emails give me a fit. Try working on it this evening. Get back with you. Thank you

Rita Jean

I got your email and sent you a response.

Pat Thank you very much.

@Rita:

Pat Thank you very much.

Rita Jean

Your welcome, let us know what more you find out

I am emailing them back and forth I ask if they had the name of the parents so we could see if they had been tested. They did not know about any testing other than rabies and regular shots. Soon as I get the parents name I can look them up. They are comming through Kansas in a week or so and if parents check out could be they may have a home for therr little guy with us and Jaycee. Have to wait and see. Thank you again.

Good for you… but from the emails that they have sent me...they have way different ideas on responsible breeders... all that said if you decide to take this pup.. please get the DNA test done for him

Nice job Pat and Rita on trying to help this little guy.

Yes and do keep us informed of the outcome.

I am happy to say that Pat really helped me lots and thank you. With that said I am sad to say the little guy never been tested or the parents. Also strange with the birth mother date and the puppy's. I also looked up what I could on the breeder that did not look good either as you may all ready know. My heart really goes to the puppy but I did send them a email and tried to explain about tests and were to look and any questions gave them my phone number told her if I could not answer I would ask for help. I also ask her if they found they could not sell him and had to give him away to please call and we can get him to the B group not the pound. I ask that if he was sold to please give the new owners the information and to please tell them how important it is. I ask her to please do this so puppy hopefully will not get sick. Who knows but we can all hope. Thanks to all of you on here and all of the B hearts. This really made me sick I would have got the little guy but I do not want to get him and then get sick and this makes me just as bad I know because at least a home with love is better than none.

Someone from our local basenji group here in San Diego has contacted them - says they're asking $450 for him. Hasn't been able to get an answer as to why they're giving him up except he's "very playful". Um, would that be code for: tazmanian devil-like, young, smarter-than-his-owner basenji behavior? :rolleyes:

Hope someone can make this have a happy ending.

They told me $500.00 but that was before my e-mail to them this afternoon. I hope this has a great ending also.

My thoughts too… and I too hope for a happy ending... and I hope they take to heart about Fanconi testing even if they don't do it themselves....

Without coming out and saying it, I'm getting that y'all have some info regarding the chances of Fanconi based on his lineage. We're encouraging anyone in our group to be aware of the risks and have him tested. Poor little guy.
