I live in San Francisco and I'm very interested in adopting a Basenji!
Could you please contact me and give me more information ….

i have had numerous basenjis .. starting out with my two RAMSES and NUBIA
they had pups .. and although they were not planned pregnacies .. went to very good homes..
I still have some contact with one family .....that bought two of our pups ...

My beloved Leeloo and MAx died last year ..... and I'm sooo in need of having the pitter patter of Basenji feet run around in my empty house...

If they had better paperwork
I might have entertained the thought of adoption

Thank you!
for your generous and warm greetings and heartfelt words of condolence.

LEELOO has settled into her new family quiet well and has made her self at home…
she had to learn SPANISH ... a bit on the fly ...
having been brought up in GERMAN speaking household ..
the transition was... a bit hit or miss ...
we can now say .....
she understands some SPANISH....
just chooses to not
participate in ...
Political or Religious discussions ...

no ... she raises an eyebrow .. and moves
only when words like VAMONOS (Lets Go!)
and Comida (Dinner Time) is announced....

She is very much the GRAND DAME ....being 12 years old ....
She doesn't suffer fools lightly.
her love of life and good living ....
has given her a bit of a curvaceous figure ...HALLE BERRY she is not !
no .... that was a time when she was a SUPERMODEL....
Winning ribbons and awards and acclaim .....!

That was then .. this is now...

She has her places of sun worship strategically throughout the house ...!
and realizes that she should lose a few pounds
however....she is much to comfortable .. to be bothered ....

unless it s a good long walk to the park...
hmmm....ohhh lets.... do that a few min later ...

Hello….Pat
We met ... a long time ago... I vaguely remember
yes.... both of them dying was the hardest thing to endure.

Alex ...kept in touch me... and when Ramses died...
his heart was moved...
enough to invite me up to Seattle to see LEELOO
and generously offered to give her back to me...

I love her and she is now very attached to me ...
she gets upset and whines and cries ....when I leave on an Errand or go visit a friend ..

She is very set in her ways ... !!!!!
Dogs ...male dogs .. she does not tolerate ...
although she has a few that she likes .. but they admire her from a far .. behind a chain link fence..
she is not very SOCIAL ... and wants to walk away from those she deems .. smelly ...unfit or beneath her
... she rarely walks with them or in the same direction ...

Ramses....
was very ARISTOCRATIC in his manners ....and never liked to socialize......with what he deemed
"The lower classes"!!

Funny how Basenji's separate themselves
from the rest of other dogs...

I want to say Hello …
and Introduce my ....Tri-color Basenji
Leeloo (La Negrita)
she is now 11years old ..
and still quite a "Enfant Terrible"
Spoiled from birth!!

She has quite a story to tell.....
As a pup was sold to a German fellow that ...
liked to show her at dog shows ...
she won numerous ...awards and ribbons.

2 years ago ...
Her Mom ...A Tri -Color .. named NUBIA died ....July 21 2010 3pm
of Pituitary-Dependent Hyperadrenocorticism :
Caused by microtumors inside the pituitary gland...

4months after NUBIA passed away ....
My Beloved RAMSES
He stopped eating ...
and also died at 2:50am 29th OCT 2010
He died of a Broken Heart.
People don't die because of suicide .. they die because of sadness

Ramses and Nubia were more than dogs to me...
They were the glue that held me together..
They were my kids...
and loosing them ......both!
was alot for my heart and mind could take....

However,
I have been given a special opportunity and generous gift
to have ... LEELOO (La Negrita)..
Ramses and Nubia's Daughter!
10 years later I get her back!
the owner has fallen on hard times with an ugly divorce
he felt that he could no longer give her the quality
of care and attention .....
and felt that my sorrow was ......so profound that
he felt it would be the best idea... for her and for me ....

and incredible and generous .. gift ..

Thank you for your kind words…..
My other Basenji Ramses is also missing her ..
He whimpered the night she died ...
they had been together for 11years !
so the pain of her not being here is felt by both of us...
