I may be the person that directed you to this forum via CL? First off, WELCOME to the basenji forums. I don't think Debbie meant to come off as abrupt, but it's probably the asking price of $600 that sparked her energy. Please recognize that some people read "RARE AFRICAN BARKLESS DOG" and think they can "invest" in the dog and get a great return... and then once they live with the dog, they are caught between getting rid of their investment and trying to recoup their costs. I don't think that's what happened with you, but it does happen in the basenji world.
You have an endearing dog, from what I've read and from your pictures on Craigs List. I think it must be hard for you to look for a new home for Rev, because you want him to be taken care of (as if he is your own child). I recently fostered a 4 year old girl for a month, knowing that she was going to be placed with my sister, and I was still leary of placing her with my OWN sister! The funny thing is that my sister actually fostered my Lola for a week before she came to me, and she felt that same way about Lola. :)So, I understand asking a price of $600, thinking that only someone who truly loves Rev will take him.
In my mind, you have either priced him to the point of "thanks, but no thanks", so that you can tell yourself that you tried to get rid of him, but no one wants him, therefore you get to keep him (HURRAY! :)), or you haven't researched rehoming fees. Either way is fine with me! I would have a hard time finding a new home for my dogs, too.
Anyway, I apologize for all of us if the tone came out "wrong". We all love our basenjis, and how much we devote our lives to this crazy breed. We all want whats right for Rev, even if we say it wrong.
Can you please share your pictures of Rev with everyone on this forum? Please believe that we will help you find him a new home, if that's what is truly best for him. (On the other hand, if you want advice on how to keep him in your home, we have lots of ideas.)
