I'm really happy to be taking Quinn in.Although I have many other B's,I felt like this was something I had to do.You see,I will tell you all a sad story.
About 8 years ago,I got a call from basenji rescue.My friend, Barbara told me that one of my pups that I sold almost 13 years ago was in rescue and would I take her back.The first think I told her was why wasn't I contacted by the people? They knew that they signed a contract to return the dog if they couldn't keep her anymore.It was told to me that they didn't want to call me.Reason for the return-They where now pregnant and didn't want a dog around there baby.So,they got her when she was 8 weeks old and now all these years later,she wasn't wanted because of a human child coming into the picture.I'm sorry,but that is not a good enough reason for me!
Sad part about Indy,that was her name,was when I got her back she was so depressed that she wouldn't eat and after a month of this,and believe me I tried everything(chicken,etc.) I decided that she was telling me that she wanted to leave.So, after many weeks of crying over this poor,depressed B,I sent her over the Bridge.I felt it was the only thing I could do.
I did have someone that would have taken her and tried with her,but couldn't get a transport!The people who where involved should have been ashamed of themselves,they sent her to her death.I just couldn't see her starving herself anymore.
So, I will try to make Quinn happy in memory of my Indy.
