Hi! My name is Crystal and I'm a new basenji owner/mama. I'm an anthropology student finishing up my last semester of my BA and will be taking a year off before graduate school.
Cody is 3 years old and a former breeder. Besides that, I don't really know a lot about his past other than the fact the he, a few females, and a number of puppies were dropped off with a woman that breeds some other kind of dogs. Apparently they were just a little too much for her to handle, because she was going to take them to the shelter if she couldn't find homes for them. I went to meet her and, despite how dirty, smelly, and scrawny he was, I fell in love with Cody on the spot. Now a month later, he is clean, spoiled, housetrained, and finally beginning to gain some weight. He is the sweetest boy, really likes attention from people, and is really curious about everything! Of course, he is also extremely stubborn and mischievious, and I quickly learned to keep my closet closed or else the minute my back is turned, my clean laundry will be all over the living room floor.
