I cannot imagine committing to buy a puppy without seeing the animal and if possible the sire and dam. OTOH, a rescue (or adoption of an older dog) is a different thing. My last two Basenjis came to me sight unseen, and turned out to be wonderful dogs, but the breeders I got them from wanted to place their dogs in an experienced Basenji home, and I only paid the cost of getting the dogs to me. One came by air, one was personally transported to me by his breeder. If she hadn't been happy with what she found I expect she would have taken him back with her when she left. I also had to commit to return him if ever I couldn't keep him. Good breeders care about where their dogs end up.
Moses (Edgar) is here…
..and boy has he already melted our hearts of what. The kids love him..he is extremely playful and loves kisses, right up my kids alley.
We have decided to name him Moses Austin, the first man to obtain permission for Anglo Americans to settle in Spanish Texas, back in 1820, he is known as the Father of Texas, we thought that was very fitting..
He is doing very well, considering he flew for the first time today, I know I was a wreak the first time I flew, then again I hate flying, with a passion.
We have introduced him to the pack and it went very well, outside…inside we had a few snarks from Otis...
Sofia, my daughter has already introduced him to the lure teaser we have made for Otis, and he seems to love it, chasing the kids, with three big steps, because he is so fast..kids are loving it none the less..
The chickens made him bark and it was so funny, because his bark is very deep, Otis just about went #2 on himself and came running in with his tail bone straight..sissy.
Now Otis is outside with his favorite pastime, guarding the yard from squirrels..
I hope Otis will fall in love with his BIG little brother, I just know they would have so much fun together..
Now we are complete..

God - pictures already - looks like he has a great family - I am so pleased. He has been to straightline and lure coursing just to tease a little and we have played with the bunny tail here as well - seems quite interested.
Thank you for welcoming him.

WOW Petra, Moses is a beautiful dog! And he's got a great temperament too. Interesting looking dog, kinda like a cross between an Ibizan hound and a Basenji. He should be good for Otis. Are you still going to foster?

"Now we are complete" she says…..Can I insert a snicker here?
He's a lovely boy. I think Otis will get over himself soon and have lots of fun with him. And, yes, Moses is a perfect name.

Welcome to the forum Moses!!!
What a handsome boy! Love the name as well! Can't wait to see him grow up! Post lots of pics please
Thanks all, so far so good. Otis is standing his "this is my pack and I am the leader" ground, but he is mellowing down. Moses was really good last night, lapdogging it, which is funny, because he is quite large..so adroable though..
Now, since I have tasted the name Moses for a while, I love it, it fits him..and I like the history behind it.
Yes, trust me we will have pictures…
Double post..it is early, sorry..

Moses is a big beautiful boy! I'm sure Otis will get accustomed to having him around soon. The fun of having another dog in the pack soon overcomes the fear of displacement!

Moses is a great name, i love the pics of him playing with Sofia and the lure teaser, we have a smaller version for our cats
What an exciting time for you all!
Does he bark very much?
Sharron, so far no, and he has a lot of barking going on around him with our two yappy dogs..He only barks once or twice, very deep and startling however.
I bet he will do great at lure coursing. Are you going to give him a try?
Yes, I hope to do it, for sure..He is already very interested in our teaser, not something Otis is..
Moses is beautiful! Your daughter looks so pleased.
Otis is handsome fella, too.
