Thank you all for the warm welcomes. I'm really enjoying the forum and hearing about your babies (and seeing all the great photos)–and hearing about the unrequited love story of Arti and Willy and all the good information. I wish I had had something like this 16 years ago when I had gotten Max as a puppy and had never heard of nor seen a basenji in my life! It was a very steep learning curve for me back then as you can imagine. Fortunately, Max and my german shepherd rescue and I were all a good match and made a great family for many years. I have applications in with BRAT, the Colorado rescue group, and the Southern CA rescue group. But my situation is that I live alone with no pets now and work all day, so I am thinking two basenjis already bonded might be the best match. It would also need to be dogs that don't have to be crated when alone since I am at work all day (I have a dog door to a large, fenced backyard--and this worked out great for my two dogs for many, many years when I was at work). So I'm going to be very patient for a good match.
Thanks for helping the New Year start out on a happy note.
