Oh, definitely, BRAT is still very active. Currently, there is only one Basenji listed on their website, but I know that there are many in various stages of rehabilitation who aren't ready for adoption. There is one currently in foster in OR, and they're trying to get some information about a pair that are in an OR shelter at the moment. Not sure what's in CA at the moment, but rest assured, there's no shortage of rescues out there. Do you have a current application in with BRAT?

No Basenji breeders right around Edmonton anymore. Closest is a breeder in Calgary. Most of the Basenjis around here recently have been coming from Beaubri kennels in Mission, BC. She breeds nice Basenjis.

Fill out a rehome form for Basenji Rescue And Transport https://www.basenjirescue.org/PostDog.asp. They could help you out, this is a very good rescue organisation.

I had a male Basenji that peed like a horse until the day he died at 15 and a half. No matter where he was. And it was kinda nice having a male that wouldn't hike his leg to piss all over things, never marked anything either. Don't complain if your boy doesn't hike to pee.

On the other hand, I had 2 Siberian Husky bitches who were TERRIBLE markers, always tried to get it as high as they could. They were both spayed too. One passed away a few years ago, still have the other, and she never marks anymore.

There is another Basenji on CL who is also from a GA breeder: https://louisville.craigslist.org/pet/d/purebred-basenji-pup/6625622891.html The owner is asking $400, sez he paid $800. BRAT knows about both dogs, but they won't pay a large fee.

Craigslist is NOT the place to buy a puppy. There is a probable scam happening on Craigslist right now regarding the sale of Basenji puppies. It is going on across the country, some ads have been removed, but new ones go up; currently there are ads in CA, CO, NM, OH, and FL. All ads have various titles, pictures, and reply-to email address, yet every reply I've gotten back is from: Suzan Lake <suzannlake@gmail.com and she sends the same group of 15 pictures.

She is giving away the pups, but she wants you to send $$ for airflight for them from Philadelphia. I smell scam, and there can't possibly be that number of litters available right now!

Thanks guys. they're both cuties, and at least they are someplace safe. It probably won't take them too long to find homes.

Could you tell me which shelter she is in, and what city/state? I do not think that she's a purebred, but I am one of BRAT's Basenji mix coordinators. Thanks

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".

@elbrant said in choo choo! chew chew!:

@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.
