Kiki is a 10 year old, 30 pound Basenji mix who will be losing the only home she has ever known on June 22. She is spayed, healthy and up to date with vaccinations. There is a picture and more information, as well as a contact email on BRAT's Basenji mix adoption site: https://basenjirescue.org/dogs-mixes/default.asp She is in Los Angeles, CA, and needs a home to go to.

BRAT has a number of Basenjis who are not quite ready for adoption, make sure that you reply to BRAT's welcome email, let them know what you have just told the Forum. Have you checked Colorado Basenji Rescue http://www.coloradobasenjirescue.org/index.shtml they do have a young female.

@nodles91 said in Chattering teeth seizures.:

It's usually a way of investigating a smell, so it can occur more often during breeding season

Canids - and other animals - have a scent organ on the roof of their mouth behind their front teeth, and when they come across a particularly good smell, they work that organ. Thus the chattering.

Nothing wrong with "used" dogs. Out of the 7 Basenjis that I have shared my life with so far only 2 moved in as puppies, 2 came from breeders at 9 months, 2 came from BRAT as young adults, and 1 was a non-BRAT adult rescue. We loved them all equally, they were all good dogs, and none seemed "used" to me. We've also had 5 non-Basenjis that were "used".

Dogs develop in spite of their food, not because because of their food.

@giza1 Joanne, is there a specific Nylabone that works? I've never had a dog who likes them. (shocking, right?)

We usually get the bigish ones, there is such a selection of Nylabones now. If your dog doesn't like them at first, try boiling it up in some sort of stock, infuse a little flavour.

How is training? Thoughts on the clicker?

Basenjis are not the easiest breed to train, but they certainly can be taught. And clicker training is THE BEST way to teach a Basenji anything!
