• Mom and Dad are thinking it could be time to adopt a new Basenji friend. (YAY) we are hoping there might be matches at Medfly but we'll see. In the meantime, does anyone know any good literature about Dog adoption? My parents have only ever had puppies and I thought some backround reading could be useful, however Amazon is littered with books and nothing really stands out.. Any suggestions ?

  • There is one titled "The secondhand Basenji Handbook". It's not comprehensive by any means, but a nice introduction to a rescue B.

  • Thanks 🙂 I think a mini collection will be needed, so I'm still looking for a "biggie". I'm so surprised how much harder it is to find a solid rescue guide!

  • Karen at Medfly stays in contact with people who adopt from Medfly and gives guidance after they take their Basenji home. She's just like a breeder and you sign a contract. If it doesn't work the Basenji goes back to her. You can call her anytime after you adopt as she has a lot of experience with all kinds of Basenjis from the very difficult to the easy ones.
