I saw this on the Basenji Rescue and Transport Facebook page and the person posted a couple photos of him also.
A Red and White Basenji, named Alvin, was found in Austin, TX, today, Sunday, January 15th. He came up to some people near Lamar and Hwy 183. Do you recognize him? He has a rabies' tag that goes to a clinic in California. Alvin is apparently well-trained and responds to lots of commands. The clinic that first scanned him said the microchip he has was not registered, but the people who have him said they went online and found a nationwide registry, the chip is from Home Again, and the company has left a message with the owner on file, but so far, no response.
Another kibble dog food recalled because of aflatoxin. Corn containing higher-than-acceptable levels of a naturally occurring substance called aflatoxin is in the kibble. They recently discovered their tests were not working as they should and reported it to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The article gives lot numbers and states where the food was distributed.

This story caught my eye because of the reference to Fanconi. A link to the article and a little of what it said:
FDA officials say they have not been able to find a cause for the illnesses. They note that the reports of illness have not conclusively been tied to chicken jerky products, also sold as chicken tenders, chicken strips or chicken treats.
Dog owners and vets are reporting that animals may be stricken with a range of illnesses within days or hours of eating chicken jerky, including kidney failure and Fanconi syndrome, a condition characterized by low glucose.
I found this ad in craigslist. I believe this is Stockton California. Does anyone know of a lost female brindle and white?

On September 14th, this older female brindle Basenji was found running around in a WinCo parking located at 5110 Montauban Ave. in Stockton. She had no tags, only a flea collar. Please email me at the anonymous craigslist address ASAP if this is your dog. Please tell me the dog's name. I will get back to you ASAP with my contact information. Thank you!

Lost 18 month old Basenji
Black, white, and brown
Name is Amy
Has green bell on purple collar that has rabies vaccination on it.
I just got lucky. The woman a got him from called to say she found his collar tag. It's Home Again. The reason I wasn't having any luck looking up his number is because the vet tech wrote the number down wrong. The chip had never been registered though.
Shaye's Mom - That's a good idea about the pound. Not sure how it will work here though. It's hard telling what county my dog would wind up at. My property is right on the county line and within a few miles of another county and to make matters even more complicated every town has a choice of contracting with different counties every year.
Thank you both!
