• Hello,

    I would like to introduce myself and my almost 3 year old Red and White male Basenji, "Baron"

    I have cruised the forums for a while but haven't registered till now.

    So you'll see me lurking around here from time to time. 🙂

    Here are a couple pics of Lisa and I with Baron. I also put a pic of our old foster Scarlett, we fostered her for 6 months, we had adopted her but Baron and her did not get along and we had to put her back up for adoption 😞
    We miss her very much, but she's with a great couple now who spoiler her rotten 😃 Her new family took her for pictures and forwarded us the one with her in the scarf 🙂


  • We welcome you and Baron to the forum! Baron is a very handsome guy. Sorry to hear the adoption didn't work out. You say you had fostered her for 6 months. Didn't they not get along during that period?

  • Welcome. Some dogs just don't like each other. I am glad you found a good home for her, and maybe the next girl will work out if you decide to add a new b.

  • your dog is beautiful, but i also really want to add that you have an AWESOME jack-o-lantern! nice work! and welcome!

  • Welcome! Nice dog, and foster. Glad she found a good forever home. Sometimes things don't work. Was she from BRAT? LOL And I agree, great Jack-o-lantern!

  • Thanks everyone, we did rescue Scarlett through BRAT. When we got her she and Baron got along very well.

    She had some issues before we had adopted her with growths inside of her mouth on her gums, and before we got her she had oral surgery under her previous fosters care.

    About four months into our adoption she started to develop the growths again, so we took her to the vet and they decided that removal of her tooth would hopefully solve the problem for good. After she had surgery her and Baron never got along, she was real grouchy and just wanted to be left alone.

    Since we have found her a new home we have gone and visited her and she seams very happy. She remembered us right away which was amazing, I wish we could have kept her because she was an angel! Perfect Basenji, not house destructive, potty trained, listened better than Baron and we were able to teach her how to shake and speak while we had her in the six months. I've been trying to get Baron to speak for almost three years!

    He can sit, lay down, shake, and rollover but he will NOT speak.

    any who here's a pic of our carved pumpkins from this year lit up, thanks for all the kind words.


    here is a pic from Barons first Halloween 2007

  • Hi Phil (and Lisa),
    Welcome to the forum! There are quite a few basenji lovers on here from Illinois, so this is a great place to expand your basenji community.
    While it is sad that Baron and Scarlett didn't see eye-to-eye, the good news is that you've unwittingly expanded your family :), as I'm sure Scarlett's new family has added comfort to you! Isn't it amazing that she still remembers you? You guys will always hold a sweet spot in her heart, trust me. 🙂
    Looking forward to stories and roos from you!

  • Great pics and welcome to the forum. What is Baron's registered name? We like to know who we're related to via our dogs. It's like some sort of crazy family reunion. But it's kinda fun.

    Sounds like Scarlett has a wonderful new family. Sometimes dogs are meant to stay with us, sometimes we are just a way to get them to where they are supposed to be.

  • She was probably in pain for awhile and that would explain being grouchy. You did your best to help her and she's doing great now. Anyway great to have you on the forum! We love pics so keep em coming.

    I'm not quite sure I understand what your asking me?

    If he is registered with the AKC? If so the answer is no.

  • Welcome to the forum! Baron is very handsome! I'm sorry it didn't work out with the foster, but I think she found a great home after all 🙂 Are you still looking to add another B to the family?

  • Welcome to the forum!

  • Welcome to the forum!

  • Welcome to the forum, Baron is a handsome boy, look foward to hearing more about him.

  • Welcome to the forum to you and your very handsome Baron.

  • The picture of Baron with the pumpkin is precious! Love it. 🙂
