I've uploaded another picture of the girls at their foster moms. Here is an update below:
"These girls, now "Ruby" and "Pearl", are at my place for the moment. Pearl may well come from show breeding. She's a very nice specimen of the breed, dewclaws removed. Ruby is a lessor specimen of the breed, still has her dewclaws. Both are sweet and very manageable. Both are very good on-lead (probably not so good the first day because they didn't want to go with strangers). Ruby is 23 pounds and a bit chubby. Pearl is 31 pounds, and, to be brutally honest, fat. Both are well within the normal basenji size range. No microchips or tatoos or tags. :<"
The girls can only stay at the foster home until the end of August, so we are hoping to find a home for them by then or at least other foster arrangements.
