wow, good to know! Well what does the B lay on in the crate? Just the floor? I suppose since they're from Africa they sleep mat style like everyone else! Thanks, Dawn
PS chipping this breed seems like a no brainer if it's not wise to keep a collar on them when at home inside.

Thank you for the encouragement… the match will be perfect however it goes! Yeah, my vehicle could handle up to 2 crates, good tip! Looks like I might want to put knobs on my cabinets (or Velcro?). I've looked to the top of my fridge and wondered if I might find my B up there some day. A cat would do so! Dawn

PS. Deschroedter, do a search and you will find the machine I found made in San Diego & let me know what you think.

Yes Tanza, I have contacted Karen via email to try and visit May 15th on a Sunday if they're open & available so I could meet Bs in person. So far no reply, but no hurry. I want a good match~ Lisa, I'm nearly 60 with lousy knees so the lure machine was a prayer answered… though I read where someone had one B that loved chasing lures and the other could care less. That Bs to a tee eh?! Dawn

I'm also considering a "thunder shirt". If not familiar, search it, let me know what you think. I wonder if anyone has come up with a car harness that I could slide the backseat belts through so the B could enjoy the breeze, but any quick motion would keep them safely in the car.
Anyway, trying to coordinate with some local shelters to get some B face time. I saw from previous (though dated) posts there is a good B vet in Vista California. Info please? Also, does one have to secure all their cabinets, sliding closet doors etc in their homes?
Any other tips you've learned that you would have liked to have known before your got your B? Send it to me. Praying for a pair that need a good home, Dawn

Cheers everyone, part 1

I first discovered Bs five years ago. Though I've met some very intriguing breeds since, I have to say a B would fit me to a tee. My child is grown, my Siamese pairs are all in cat heaven. Conversely my condo complex has many various pets and children. I would like to become a forever family is for a B or pair. I have registered with BRAT (USA Basenji rescue~focused group), contacted local reliable breeders and shelters. I am in no hurry and looking for a good match. I was worried about how to give my future B enough daily workout and then found a lure coursing machine! What a great idea as there is no way I could run that fast with toilet paper hanging off my shoe!
