How about a neck tube?
Maybe cut the foot off a tight-ish tube sock and put that over her neck.

I think you spend too much time bashing BRAT.

My bet is Samoyed

No. No blue eyes on Sammys. Those eyes do look Sibe, though, this dog looks an awful lot like many of the racing huskies I've seen.

Does her tail curl right up when she's walking around? I have a white "Basenji" mix with a tail that looks just like hers, DNA says no Basenji in him. She is a very beautiful dog, I love blue eyes on a dog.

I'd say there's a good chance that he has some Basenji in him. A DNA test will tell you for sure. Attractive boy, I love the Black and Whites.

I have been wanting to help this person find a home for this dog but s/he is not receptive at all. I was told that the dog is being taken to the shelter at the end of the week (tomorrow?). I fear that may be a death sentence for this old girl. Can anyone take her in? She looks like she is part Basenji. https://eastky.craigslist.org/pet/d/fall-rock-dog-for-rehoming/6852914667.html

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.

@donc said in Rescuing a stray basenji:

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).

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.
