• Hello everyone i am a new B owner from cleveland ohio. I would love to know more about the breed.I got this most wonderful dog from a petstore i used to work at. she sat in the window for 3mnth. I could not take to see this majestic animal sit there any long so finely i broke down and got her. She is much smaller than any other B i have seen and kinda goofy, but i still love her like she is my own child! The day after i got her i Left the Pets store and never went back. I thank God every day that i have a B in my life. And my cats are never begging to play any more.
    Thank you Shannon

    Good for you 😉 Welcome to the forum! Totally understand about the wardrobe and the cats :)</the>

    Looks like you're in the right place and what a great thing to say. I'm sure many, if not all of us here feel that way…...thanks for joining us and welcome.;)


  • Now that's a great way to "rescue" a basenji. I got my Abbey from a couple who owned the mom and dad, not a BRAT rescue, and could not be happier with my choice.


  • Welcome Shannon, glad you joined this Forum. I think if I worked at a petstore, I'd probably have lots of pets. But, like you - noticing a pet had been there for 3 months - I'd take it home too. How old is your StellaGirl now? Check out the Behavioral Forums here for tips and techniques in training.
