In the beginning of April 2010 I rescued 2 two week old puppies. I was given no information about them other than a picture of their believed father, I can upload that if it's helpful. Their names are Junta and Theia. Today while running around on the beach (a twice daily occurrence for us due to an insane amount of energy) a man came up to me and commented on my beautiful Basenji mixes. I had previously thought some sort of Australian Shepherd but was really quite unsure.
A little about the girls:
They turn 8 months old TODAY (birth date: March 30, 2010)
They stand about 17 inches (?) tall and weigh around 40 (?) pounds.
Their tails are held up with a little curve and a white tip, though they can and do pull them down.
They HATE the wet weather here in coastal Northern California, although Junta will swim if a stick is thrown, its 100 degrees out, and I'm already in the water.. Theia will not even consider the proposition.
They're little wrinkled brow makes them look constantly worried.
Juntas ears stand straight up, and one of Theias does.
Theia has a cataract in her right eye, presumably from birth.
They lick themselves, each other, or me constantly, especially when tired.
They love to be with me and constantly ask for my attention (maybe just a dog thing )
I've posted some pictures of them and I'd love to hear what you think!!
