• So wonderful that you were able to find another basenji to warm your hearts and home. I am sure you will have many joyful years with her. And DO post some pictures, because we love them!

  • Welcome to the forum, sorry to hear about the loss of Suni and pleased that you have Laika.

  • Here is a picture of Laika.

  • Oh, such a pretty girl..how is she working out???

  • She is such a pretty girl - love the crossed feet position -

  • So far she is doing really well. We are taking her to her first Vet visit. Will let you know more later. She has a big scar on her left front leg. I would like to know more about her history. The last person was a man, and he had her for a few years. She seems to be bonding with Jack more.

  • Well, if you want to win her over, you start feeding her, giving her treats and doing all the "fun" things a new b likes.
    You can even hand feed her..it does help the bonding.
    Sorry about her leg…some of these poor b's have sure been banged around.
    Glad you got her and not someone who was thinking b's are like ****ers or labs...

  • We just got back from the Vet with Laika. She is in great health. Her teeth need cleaning, that is all. She has a 3 inch surgery scar on her left front leg.
    Dr. Renee could not find any information in the few papers that came with her. The last male owner had her for 3 years. That is why she bonded with Jack right away.

  • I am glad she is in good health. You will have many years with her. But if I were you, I would do the fanconi cheek swab, just so you know what to expect in the future.

  • This is all such good news - yet another rescue who has aloving home. Thank you to all those involved in rescue - at either end.

  • We have another appointment next month and we will talk to Dr. Renee about the fanconi test.
    Laika has had very little traing. We use a Flexy for walking right now. I would like to get her trained on a short leash later, so we could take her out in public. Is it possible?? Suni would try to attack any dog.
