1 1/2 year old Basenji female named Bailey,
Chestnut red in color, sweet personallity and house trained. Her owner has lost their home and just cannot provide for her anymore, so they've made the painful decision to find her a loving family to care for her. Inquiries please contact 767 - 8451 or rsvptoron@aol.com

The Basenji is known as the barkless dog of central Africa, but the breed is far from silent. It makes a series of noises and a crowing sound that breed fanciers describe as a yodel. This hunting breed, classified as a sighthound, is valued for speedy, intelligent and silent workmanship. It can outsmart most creatures, a trait some people find a downright challenge to cope with in the home. Basenjis are not above trying to outwit the hand that feeds them. Begin training early to stay a step ahead of this dog. Basenjis are fastidious about personal cleanliness. They clean themselves much like cats do. Squarely built. The coat may be black, chestnut red, brindle or tri-color, all with distinctive markings. The coat is easily maintained with weekly brushing. Basenjis are excellent watchdogs and fit well into most homes or apartments, as long as they get plenty of daily exercise.

I emailed to rsvptoron@aol.com, too, asking them about the dog. The weird thing about this post (and why I didn't cross-post), is that the person talks in the third person…

… is this a rescue group? I will let you know if I get a response back. 🙂

I noticed that too. I just thought that maybe it was someone that offered to post the ad for the owner.
