Hi, R.thitaram,

I am one of the Directors of Basenji Rescue and Transport, Inc. (BRAT) and receive all the rescue forms submitted to BRAT. We just got notice of a red and white basenji in GA, but not a black and white named Vader. Please submit the form again at http://www.basenjirescue.org/postdog.asp . Our home page is www.basenjirescue.org . We will be glad to work with you if you need to re-home Vader. You can also write to me using this address brat-help@lists.basenjirescue.org .

Hi, Zola's mommy, have you contacted her BRAT Coordinator?

We at BRAT are extremely appreciative when a responsible breeder is willing to take back a dog of their breeding. And I am including senior basenjis in this comment. It's a life-long obligation/responsibility. If we are aware of who the breeder is, we do contact the breeder about the dog that is coming into rescue.

It's ok to use the pictures here. The consensus from the Pix-List is that Dewgan should be described as a red and white with a mask, an AKC acceptable description.

This dog is in Arizona and is listed on the BRAT website.

Anne, I am so sorry to hear Chipley was hurt. I know how you love to be at the dog park. I love seeing the pictures you share.

Ditto from me. These are so neat! I'd love to know the history behind them.

I just went to the Memphis Shelter and saw Stella Rose. She's a sweet girl, and is a mix of some sort, but not a basenji mix. They had her in another area so that she could be treated for her cough. I have pulled basenjis from this shelter before. I filled out a new Partnership agreement since we weren't on their list anymore for some reason. This shelter is relocating to a new building soon and will have much more space, which is really needed.

Please ignore - this is just a test.

When I sent my post, I had not read that Zeba has also crossed the bridge. My condolences on both basenjis.

@curlytails:

Debbi, Sharron, I've e-mailed you both with a possible lead on a foster home.

Hi, MC,

Thank you so much for searching for a foster home for Oakley. The situation has now changed.

I just spoke with BRAT member Michele who had picked up Oakley earlier this morning. She is now on her way to take Oakley back to the owner's mother. The mother called Michele several times to ask her to bring Oakley back, that she had a friend who was willing to take her. Hopefully this will work out. I asked Michele to give the lady her phone number in case it didn't work out, that we would still take her.

This situation just gets sadder. We found out that Oakley's 16 year old basenji companion died within the last two months, so she had been grieving that loss, too. This really breaks my heart.

M. C., we will be back in touch with you if we get Oakley back. Thank you so much for searching for a foster for her.

Sincerely,
Debbi Johnson
BRAT Treasurer and Director
Germantown, TN

BRAT is picking her up today. We really need a foster home for her. If anyone would like to take her into their home, please let me know.

How many here are BCOA members? How many would want to be? If not, why not?

@DebraDownSouth:

COUGH COUGH. ROFLMAO. Ahem. Oh heck I don't care, going to say it.

I nearly got axed from the list for complaining about how long they wanted to keep Cara. From "iffy" to perfect indeed, right Ms J?

Debra, you are oh, so right. You almost got axed from the list of potential adopters. Plus it didn't help that I initially had you mixed up with someone else. Your persistence paid off in the end. One of the things I love about placing our rescues is that I sometimes end up with lifelong friends.

debbi J,

Speaking from a rescue standpoint, BRAT treasures the responsible breeders who take back dogs of their breeding.

Placing puppies with great homes can be very difficult. I placed almost all of the Wimauma Floria basenjis. There were 34 very young ones in the first group. I received over 200 applications for them. Thank goodness I was lucky enough to select good matches for them. It's been over a year since those placements were made. We try to keep in touch with each our adopters. Only one of these pups came back into rescue, and it was within the last month. I am thankful for the wonderful, loving homes these basenjis are in.
