Basenji puppy in Macon, GA

@dash:

Personally, I think my dogs are just as cuteness as adults. It is not like a bloodhound or shar pei that grow out of their cuteness. I have super cute small doggies forever.

I 100% agree with you - and I've had many people comment that my adults are super cute. Many times strangers think they are puppies until I tell them they are 4yo.

This is the response to my inquiry about Anasazi. Like I said, I'm three hours from Macon and will be glad to help out with transportation.

_Hi,

Yes, Anasazi is in foster care. Her adoption fee is $200, that includes her having all her shots as well as being spayed. She was an owner surrender who decided that puppies were too much work. She?s a very sweet girl, she gets along well with the other dogs I have. For further adoption information visit our web site at www.heartofgahs.org.

Dash, I agree.

I saw that they only adopt out to Georgia residents, as they require a homevisit, which is good for the dog, not so good for anybody out of state that might want to adopt her.

I am with all of you so sad and I also look at Jaycee who will be 9 months in couple days I could never, never let her go. We love her so much and yes there was there times like what are you into now and yes there are still those times. I wish people would understand just because they have four legs and are called animal they are really our children not legs and animals. Then I have to say to myself there are people who do not even take care of the children. To sad and I hate it.

It doesn't hurt to ask for an exception to the rule. A home visit can be done by another rescue group. I believe the rescue group understands that Basenji owners are a different breed, too. I told the rescue group about this web site and the forum.

Please read the above response from the rescue group.

I rest my case wonder who the breeder is?…. :mad:

Macon is only a couple of hours from Harmony Hounds but this really doesn't mean much considering how easy it is to have puppies shipped by air.

Very true Robyn…. however from what I know about Harmony Hounds, while not my choice of a responsible breeder... she will take back her dogs (IF THIS WAS from her breeding)... wonder if the owner ever contacted the breeder

Houston

Sometimes I think people rather give the dog up to BRAT or sell it then return it to the breeder. I don't know, but the last few weeks, some people that posted their dogs on here didn't even know to do that..or so they said.

If they have a contract, it is not optional or at least it should not be… However, that said, 50% of the pups out there are from BYB's that do not have contracts or tell people they will take the dog back, only when or if the time comes tell them... NO..... they are just as happy to be "relieved" of the responsibility and let Rescue take care of the dog

Houston

Easy way…the american way of life..

Just in the last month I have spoke with BYB I know for fact after asking just one question to each of them. I ran and never looked back or called back. IA, TX, GA, TN all four states.
Have the parent's been fanconi tested? No need to they will not get it until ages of 3 to 7 thats when you test each month with a test strip that is what everyone said. So there is going to be lots more out there.

Folks need to do their homework..sadly some folks just impulse buy.

+1. And sadly the impulse buyers keep BYBs and puppymills in business. Oh, and also people looking for what they perceive as a "deal" in price.

Y'all know I've been considering adopting the little girl so I know she will be safe and in a good home.

This girl sounds like she is in a place that will do right by her and find her a good forever home.

I must agree with you Ivoss I looked at there website and I think it said they have placed 4,700 animals in homes. Looks like they do lots of things with the dogs also. It does not look like a bad place. I am sure they will find the right home for this gal.

Any further information on this girl? I wonder what her behavior is like? If she is housetrained and well-mannered, I'd consider giving her that forever home.

Shango really loves other dogs, misses Mowgli, and we'd be willing (depending on her temperament, behavior) to give her a good home.

The ad says she's "working hard on her housetraining." Not to mention, when a new dog comes into a house it isn't unusual for the them (no matter what age) to have accidents until it is completely comfortable (I'd give 3 months or more to fully adjust). And she is only 8 months - so you still need to think "puppy" as far as energy, manners, etc. Not to mention, with another dog there is bound to be noise (from play and disagreements) - how much depends on how well the 2 dogs mesh personality wise. My 3 all have great temperaments, but they still have tiffs every now and then and basenji play is loud. Both my adults that I adopted as adults probably took 3 months each to fully settle in and be on sure footing and Ruby and Brando knew each other well before they ever came here.

In your mowgli threads you indicated that you were in school and didn't have time and no mode of transport (think emergency vetting), so honestly, why not wait a bit - especially as this pup is in a nice rescue situation.

Great advise Renault1
