Hello!

I have been reading these forums for quite a while, and I thought it was about time I joined and said hello to everyone.

In the past 7 months I've adopted these two Basenjis:

The youngest is Roxy, a 7 year old red and white female that I adopted from an animal shelter on Orcas Island, while the tricolour is an 11 year old boy named Rocky that came to me from Battle Creek, MI, via BRAT.

Both of them are settling in nicely, getting on well with the resident cats, and are enjoying sunbathing outside, now that the sun has hit western Washington.

Welcome, and bless you for adopting wonderful older dogs. 7 & 11 are wonderful ages, my youngest is almost 11, I still think of him as a youngster.

they look like they are getting used to each other quite nicely, I'm sure you are enjoying them!

Welcome to the forum. Roxy and Rocky look like wonderful Basenjis!

First Basenji's

They are so cute, entwined in each other's limbs. Welcome.

I think that Rocky is 11 going on 3 years old. We went on a trip to the beach yesterday and he had a great time exploring the driftwood at the base of the cliffs. He was way more active than Roxy, but then again she's the very definition of 'couch potato'.

what a sweet pic!!! i can't believe they haven't been together thier whole lives. bless you for taking in some almost senior pups. glad you posted!

Wow, I'm amazed you found a basenji on Orcas Island. It's so small.

I'm glad you found them both. They look happy.

I love the older b's..they are just treasures…

If it wasn't for Sharron, I'd probably have missed her. Sharron came over to evaluate my house for a potential BRAT adoption, and when that didn't work out, I kept looking. When I saw an email from her about a basenji at the Orcas Island Animal Shelter, I went the next day and brought her home the week after.

@agilebasenji:

i can't believe they haven't been together thier whole lives.

They have their moments together, they have been some squabbles about 'who gets to sit next to me' from time to time. We're working on that.

Thank you so much for taking that b out of the shelter. Anytime a basenji smart home does that, I consider it a win!!!

Welcome to you and your Basenjis. How fortunate for them and you that you've given them a loving home.

Welcome to the forum, Roxy and Rocky look great together. Look foward to hearing more about them both.

Congratulations on being adopted by two wonderful looking beasties - I mean basenjis!
