Senior Basenjis on Petfinder in Revo NV

There are two senior Basenji on petfinder in Reno Nevada…. not sure if BRAT was alerted

I love the oldies. xox Hope they find homes. I wish I could save them all!

For all that were concerned about Quinn.
He is home with me and I'm starting to make him feel at home.
He is looking very frail and so I have some work to do with him.

Great news that you now have him! I'm sure he will do well with you.

I see a curly sue and mogi listed on brat in nevada are these them?

Yes, I believe those are them….. if I remember the pictures

Brat does know about these 2 b's..in fact have posted them on the BRAT site, even tho the shelter will not give them up to BRAT.
So, we have done all we can.
I so hope someone will open their hearts and home to these 2 b's.

Glad to hear that Quinn is home and safe..

Why won't the shelter give them to BRAT?

I just looked at the pix. Curly Sue looks rather thin.
I'm praying for these two old darlings.
Breaks my heart.

I went to visit them yesterday and the staff said that they had both been adopted, apparently together.

That is great news… and many time shelter will not just give them up to rescue... here in No Ca... we have two shelters next to each other... one will call breed rescue if they have a purebred... the other will NOT... as they claim they get "more" money when they place a purebred...

Glad to hear the great news! Are those shelters in the East Bay?

Ugh. I hate shelters that charge different fees for purebred or mixed breed dogs. It just keeps up the idea that purebreds are inherently "better" than mixed dogs. And for some things they are–we probably wouldn't be on this board if we all didn't like purebred basenjis--but for shelter rescues? Bah. I totally understand charging different rates for puppies in the hopes that they'll help float the less adoptable dogs, or lowering the fee on senior or sick dogs to get them into homes faster. I even understand a purebred rescue knocking off some money for a mix, but it's kind of...unseemly for shelters to do so, I think.

Yes they are….. (both in the East Bay)

I totally agree….

Yea….win/win...and someone has a very nice pair of settled b's.
