Annie is a sweet girl with lots of energy.

She is very social, and like many a good Basenji she is also very stubborn! She is very energetic and needs regular exercise. She will require an owner who is as energetic as she is (as well as super patient)!

She loves to play with toys. She gets bored easily and will be destructive when she is bored - which is why I have learned to leave her lots of toys, inside and out. She loves to be outside and would do well with an outdoorsy person. She is very affectionate and loves to snuggle.

Annie is a little too rough with my small dog, but would do well with medium/larger dogs and older kids as she loves to play and wrestle. She can sit on command and is very motivated by treats. Once she gets to know you, she will be very protective of you and your home - she definitely patrols the house and yard. A 6-foot privacy fence is a must or else she will escape. Annie is a climber (and a high jumper) - I've seen her climb stacked boxes and a dog gate is no match for her.

Annie is very affectionate and loving and has a great personality. When I rescued her, it was always with the intention of finding her a home - I have fallen in love with her! But I know Annie deserves an owner who can love and appreciate her and give her the active life she deserves. If that home could be with you please e-mail:
