Rocky has had several homes through no fault of his own. He was pulled from a south Florida shelter a couple of years ago by a wonderful man who met Rocky while volunteering there and just had to take him out. He already had 2 females dogs (not basenjis) and when he had to move out of the country and could only take 2 dogs, he left Rocky with a friend who really wanted him. Rocky was great with her kids (not toddlers) but she broke out in hives whenever she petted or cuddled him. After some months and soul searching, Rocky moved in with her friend who loved him too and had a big dog Rocky loved to play with. That person now has a new job with lots of traveling and Rocky just isn't getting what he needs, time and exercise-wise. Rocky is about 4 or 5, red and white, gets along great with other basenjis and other dogs, as long as they don't push him too far. Good with kids (5 and up), has fun at dog park, really a nice dog and I would take him but I already have 3, all I can afford as they are older and at the expensive stage! I told the original owner I would help find Rocky a good forever home, all our friends already have 2 or 3 basenjis!
I would drive Rocky pretty far to the right home, either in Florida, Georgia or even Alabama. If anyone is interested in this great dog, write back and we can get Forum moderators to put us in direct contact.
