Oh don't worry about it. I am with BRAT, we don't have volunteers in Mesquite.
But we do in Dallas, I got it sorted.

Or, if you live near Dallas and could foster for a couple days.

Does anybody here live in Mesquite, TX? I'm weighing my options for getting an alleged (doubt it) Basenji mix out of the Mesquite animal shelter, he's on the kill list.

This pup did find a home through BRAT, and she has moved to MT.

Where I am this guy would be adopted in a heartbeat but Texas is a whole different ballgame. Kudos for your work.

Ditto for where I am. I move a lot of dogs out of Texas, I don't think I've moved any dog TO Texas. (no, that's not true, I just moved one OK to TX... same difference).

I am one of the Basenji mix coordinators for Basenji Rescue And Transport. Contact me at giza.1@mcsnet.ca and I can let you know what BRAT can do do to help you out.

Please post his picture so we can see what he looks like. Basenji Rescue And Transport https://www.basenjirescue.org/ can help find a good home for him if he is indeed purebred because, like you said, they are not like other dogs. And if he has been on the streets for awhile, he may need a bit of rehabilitation before he goes to a new home.

@antigone said in Meeting a Basenji:
I would tell her to not get a Basenji as it a not a good idea. She can look for another Breed which may be more appropriate for her level of experience.

That's actually a bit of a presumptuous statement, you don't know anything about her level of experience. There was a time that I didn't know that much about Basenjis, I learned, we are now on our 6th and 7th. Yes, they can be a difficult breed, but that in itself is not necessarily a reason to tell someone not to get one.

There are a lot of Basenji Rescue And Transport (BRAT) members who live in that area. I'll check. I think there might be breeders too.
