I'm Beth…I've been lurking on the boards for a bit and thought I should go ahead and make it official ;). I've had the honor of growing up with a basenji. Princess (I was six) was my best friend from 1986-2003 and I still miss her. I've been wanting another basenji for the past 6 years but haven't seriously looked til this year when I was finally able to buy a house.
I've been checking the BRaT site almost monthly over the last few years and managed to find a B for close friend's of the family who's B (Princess younger aunt) had passed away. Over this year I've been checking it weekly, sometimes daily. I do have an application on file and had a good home visit, but so far I've been passed over twice and now possibly a third time. I've also emailed a couple of breeders in neighboring states about adopting young/ adults but there have been no replies.
I'm starting to loose hope.
I'm looking for/ need a cat friendly (good with elderly cats), non-house destructive (I'd prefer to not have to crate while at work, but could block off the kitchen with a 41" gate) , and preferably male 2-6 years old.
Edit- I forgot to add that if there are other organizations or groups that deal with rescue I'd be interested in finding out more, to broaden the search. I'm just really hoping it doesn't take another year or more to find the right basenji.
