Hello, My name is Dean.
We are new to the Basenji Forums. We have a 4 yr old female Basenji mix named Willow. Willow is a rescue from the Indianapolis Humane Socioty. She was recsued at 8 weeks old in 2006 by my daughter, who kept her for 1 year and decided that she was to much for her family to raise. In 2007 my wife and I adopted Willow and she has been a wonderful addition to our family.
Two days after Thanksgiving this year (2010) we became the forever home to 14 mo. old Benny the Basenji, who was a rescue from Ohio. This little guy has leapt (litterally) into the family with all four paws and hasn't stopped going yet.
Willow is teaching Benny manners and he is learning quickly. Of course he is still a puppy so he still does all of the puppy stuff. Benny and Willow run the house much of the day and then fall dead asleep right in the middle of play. Then they get up and start again. Benny has also gotten Bear, our over weight 12 year old Schipperke to get up and run the house somewhat.
Well, I think that's enough for now. Thank you for this opportunity to share
