Basenji in Indianapolis Humane!

  • Hey guys, check out this handsome boy. His name is Manny and he looks like a full-blooded Basenji, boy. You can scroll down the page and see him here:

    Doesn't have his story listed so I called ASA I saw him on the site. We need to get him outta there! I know Indy Humane and if dogs are there for an extended stay, it really changes their behavior/personality for the worst.

    The shelter's close to me, so I'm going to go check him out and see what can be done, but the soonest I can get there is Saturday.

    Any other Indiana B owners can get there today or tomorrow to meet the guy and get his story?

    Good luck, Andrew, I am not close but wanted to give you virtual hugs fro trying to help this boy out..Let us know what happens.

  • Poor Manny, I hope you can help him out Andrew, you're a star.

  • Thanks for spotting this dog Andrew. If you can, see if you can fill any of the in the blanks in a BRAT style adoption list…....oops......sent to post instead of preview......

    Edit: If you visit him, see if you can fill us in on any info like what you'd find on a BRAT adoption information sheet. That's a doable adoption fee. If you can get him a foster home, message me. I'll send the adoption fee to you or BRAT.

    Thanks, Dawn

  • Hey all, talked with those at the IHS and this is the info I was able to get:

    call name: Manny
    dog state: IN
    DOB: He's estimated 4 years old.
    gender: Male
    color: Light brindle
    weight: 26

    healthy? Yes
    Has all shots current, except needs Rabies.
    list medical info: Had a broken tooth when arrived at the shelter, but is fixed and healed now.
    temperament: Very shy, especially around other dogs but warms up. After adjusting, shows signs of wanting to play (pawing, bowing…etc)

  • Did anyone contact BRAT?

  • @sharronhurlbut:

    Did anyone contact BRAT?

    I haven't yet, no. I figured I would go and meet him first.

  • Contact Keath at America's Basenji Rescue.

  • Did BRAT or someone go get this boy? He's not on the IHS website any more.

  • FYI - there is a pretty active Basenji rescue in the Indi area already - it is possible that they went and got him. I have to think about who is the lead person because other than a first name of Mary I don't remember.

  • @AndrewnShango:

    I haven't yet, no. I figured I would go and meet him first.

    Andrew its probably worth another call down there just to settle your mind.


  • There are also quite a few breeders in the Indianapolis area that might be his breeder. Brad Phifer is a breeder, dog trainer and worked at the Indy Humane Society…though he is out of town right now. If you can get this guy out, I bet there are a lot of people around there that would help you out.

  • Manny's no longer on the IHS site, which means someone adopted him. I did contact Rebecca and Keith at America's Basenji Rescue so hopefully they went and got the little guy…

  • I heard from Brad earlier today…and if this is same dog he was talking about, it was adopted by a person who had recently lost his/her B recently. Sounds like a happy ending 🙂

  • Keath and Becky from The American Basenji Rescue in Indianapolis. They are great people, and just helped me in getting a boy out of the Bloomington Animal shelter. Archie the Senj is now living the high life with Kate Nefertiti (our first Senj) and I
