Yes, she is pretty, well treated as well. She was bought over the net by an older couple who brought her up to the PNW to breed, as the old gal said, "there aren't any b's in the PNW, so I thought I would sell some"..sigh..course, she isnt' AKC..
Anyway, the woman fell ill, and this gal was saved from that plan.
That was what the owners said who give her to BRAT. She is housebroken, uses a doggie door and play nips, but is learning its not a good thing to do.
Re BRAT and the states the dogs are in. It depends. As this girl has so much interest
in the PNW, I doubt I will be moving her out of the area. BUT some BRAT b's are moved.
The Fl basenji puppies are being moved up throught the northeast, or at least that is my understanding.
So are BRAT dogs only available to the particular state they are in? Also in her profile it indicates that she is:
she nips: yes
house destructive: dont know
Kira went to her new home yesterday, I was her foster. Her previous owners didn't have net access so I had to fill her form out with what I'd derived from her so far and what clear info I was able to get from her previous home.
Nip - yes, in play only and I would classify it more as love nibbles than actual nips. At one point to stop her from running out the door I had to grab the first thing on her that I made contact with, it ended up being the skin of her back. She turned and screamed in surprise but never made any attempt to nip or bite. I would have settled for either to not have her bolting out the front door & loose :eek:
House Destructive - Don't know.. because I never gave her the opportunity! I'd rather not lose something to find out :p But she is only 18 months old and still has the usual age-related mischief. Yesterday while putting together a quick collar for her she took off with my cell phone charger and a wooden dowel that was on the floor that's used in the track of the nearby when it's closed. At her previous home she was also never really given the opportunity. I suspect she spent the majority of her day restricted to their laundry area that had a dog door that went outside. I think this is what has enforced her bolting behavior so much, the poor girl just want to be FREEEEEEEEEEE! Miraculously my TP survived 3 weeks with her, with most fosters I have to take it off the holder while they are with me :rolleyes:
