And if you do get him DNAed, let us know.

Thank you for making this decision now, it is so important that a Basenji be brought up correctly. Are you looking to sell him to recover his purchase fee or do you simply want a good home? I could help if it is the latter. I volunteer with Basenji Rescue And Transport (BRAT), this organisation will definitely find a good Basenji home for your pup. Contact me at giza.1@mcsnet.ca and please attach a picture of him.

@DebraDownSouth said in Sunscreen:

Interesting and something I need to consider as we now have a Samoyed.

Okay, I'm a bit confused here, and maybe I'm a bad pet parent, but I've never put sunscreen on a dog. I don't live in FL, but we get a heck of a lot of sun here, in high summer we'll get 18 hours a day and it can get hot (but we're not humid!). Yes, the dogs will get roasty, especially the short haired dark ones, but they got fur, they don't burn (okay maybe their bellies get a little pinky). They'll get hot enough to pant, then they'll move to the shade. And sunscreen won't keep them any cooler. And why would a Sam need sunscreen?!! Just cause they're white? I can't see the sun getting through all that fur!

That's really sad. You'd think the breeder would have contacts or go to their social media pages etc to find a home. :( Has Brat contacted them?

I decided to contact her myself. She did not breed the dog. He is her only Basenji, she has Shibas, and does Shiba rescue, and is not in a hurry to place the dog. The right home must come along and she prefers it to it to be in the Tri state area.

I do not actually know, but I suspect not. I did alert them to the posting but I got the impression that they felt the dog was with a responsible person who would make sure the dog ended up in an appropriate home. I hope that is the case, and the owner is being very picky which is why the ad has been up so long. I am surprised, though, that she did not have some sort of waiting list. I have no idea who this person is.

There is a retired show dog on craigslist right now, but he is in OH. Been there for awhile.

@DebraDownSouth said in Looking for Older Basenji in British Columbia, Canada:

In fact, brat has people checking Craigs list and if you see one, let them know. Getting the dogs into rescue so they are vetted and put in good homes helps.

That would be me. I check as many a internet sites as I know of daily looking for Basenjis, that's why I've got a pretty good idea of what's out there, and where they mostly are. A lot of the people who are initially asking for money will simply turn them over to BRAT. Many do want good homes for these dogs, and just don't know about rescue.

Oh, I'm not saying it's the best place to get a Basenji, but y'know, at the end of the day, it's a little Basenji that needs a home. That little Basenji doesn't know it may be of inferior quality and what, not worthy of a home?
