Florida Basenji's

    Hello, Joe and Trish here…. We now own two Basenji's
    1. Pikachu 10 year old female, red and white that we have owned for 10 years
    Pikachu has had one litter (3 pups), about 8 years ago and I believe one of her pups has an owner that posts on this forum (Basenji is Cesar, from Florida)
    2. Kizzy 9 month old female, dark red and white, light green eyes, just received her today. She is a BRAT basenji, part of the "Wimauma pack" Very shy and gentle, not completely "socialized" yet. She has had alot to deal with in the first 9 months of her life. Just today she met her first cats and had to deal with stairs, a dock and the Gulf of Mexico. In time she will learn to love it all, just like her sister, Pikachu.
    She seems very curious about the cats, as they do about her.

    Hi, everyone,

    I am a member of BCOA and BRAT. I have friends on this list and decided it was time for me to join. I also was interested in seeing a new picture of Kizzie. I am so happy she is in her forever home. Best wishes to Kizzie, Piikachu, and the Williams family!

  • First Basenji's

    Wow, Kizzy's color is very striking! Is that common amongst basenjis? Or is this a Wimauma specialty?

  • Welcome to the forum!

    I've always thought Kizzy is super striking with the coat colour & eye colour. I saw pics of her when they were first rescued so it will be cool to be able to see her grow. Thanks for posting pics!

    Welcome to the forum..I agree with Renault1, I also think she has a striking coat colour and pretty eyes.

    Welcome to all of you.

  • WOW - Kizzy is gorgeous - the color of her coat and the beautiful eyes are a wonderful combination, and her expression in the first picture is so intense. Welcome to the forum - I'm sure Kizzie will make a nice companion for Pikachu and a good addition to your household. So good to see the Wimauma dogs finding loving homes.

    JoeW and Debbij, welcome to the forum. I hope that Pikachu and Kizzy get on well, it's good to see the Wimauma basenjis are steadily getting their forever homes owing to the caring people on both sides of the adoptions. The colours are certainly striking. I assume these arise from the 'native' mixes?

    Debbi is the major BRAT angel..so probably the one you "talked" to in BRAT.
    JoeW. I am so happy that your sharing your info and photos of these 2 lovely b's.
    Thank you for opening your home and heart to these b's….

    :)What a wonderful opportunity to open our home and our heart to such a deserving B. She is doing great. She is timid and beautiful. All the neighbors are asking about her on our walks. I do beleive her coat color and eye color are thorowbacks from the African blood in her. Do other people who have B's ever see their tails wag? She hasn't done it here yet (but hopefully will soon) but we did see her wag at BRAT on Saturday, when she was reunited with her beautiful sister Bibi. (Bibi is in a couple of the pictures I am attaching). I understand she also found a forever home. There are lots of B's at BRAT in Seminole still waiting for their new humans!

    Hi, Joe and Trish,

    Yes, I am the Debbi that you first contacted at BRAT. Working hand in hand along with Pam in Florida, she and I have placed more than 30 basenjis from the Wimauma Pack. We are now starting to place the young adults. In addition, we have one more available 4 month old male pup in Florida and a male/female pair from the same litter that we have moved to Maryland so that a transport to their eventual adoptive family is easier.

    BTW, I have an 8 year brindle boy, Basil, and a 7 year old tri girl, Trinity. I've learned over the years that with basenjis, you can't have just one.

  • Hi Joe and Trish, Welcome!
    We are over in Tampa and have a weekly basenji meet-up, sometimes Kizzie's brother Kongo (was Afrika) joins us and we would love to meet up with you and the kids when you are ready for an outing. We sometimes take a road trip to Crest Lake Park in Clearwater, that might be a good central location! I meet Kizzie when she was at the shelter, what a gorgeous girl, so happy that she has a great forever home!

  • Wow, the eyes are so striking it's scary.

  • Welcome to the forum! And please keep us updated - and send lots of pics on their progress…

    Kizzy's eyes are mesmerizing and complements her darker color very well... I think she got me hypnotized - I can't stop staring at those beautiful eyes! :p:p:p:D
