    Meet Echo. Echo is a petite playful male 9-10 month old basenji/whippet mix looking for a family to call his own. He was found as a stray but nobody claimed him. He is a sweet boy who loves people. He is dog friendly, cat friendly and is good with kids (though you'll have to watch his puppy behaviors don't get out of hand). This sweet boy is still very much a puppy and still learning the rules. Luckily he is a people pleaser and seems to catch on rather quickly. Echo is neutered and current on vaccines. Please contact Debbie for more info 951-349-8834

Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations, Fearful/Anxious 

    Sadie is a housebroken, loving ol gal who just wants to be with her humans she has bonded mostly with my husband but will cuddle with anyone. She prefers adults and pretty much ignores small children. If they give her a treat however she will linger about them. She was in a home with a mom dad and two small children. They had her for seven years and cannot keep her since they moved. She has been with with us for 5 weeks and our landlord said she must go. We have one week according to him. I will keep her from the shelter as long as I can.

Our landlord was notified and we are deeply saddened by the thought of taking her to a shelter. Please help us find Sadie Mae a good home. Sadie was purchased as a Chihuahua but soon they realized she was a basenji mix, her tail gave it away. She will be your best friend.

Basenji Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Hello my name is Mazie. I am around 1-2 years old and I have a lot of energy! I need lots of space to run around and stretch my long legs. I get along with most dogs (only have been around female dogs) and I'm not quite sure about cats still. I don't bark much, only if I hear something and am wondering what it could be. I am kennel trained, and call that home at night. I do need lots of love an attention, or I tend to get bored and chew on things I'm not suppose to. I have the start of my puppy package shots, but I have not been spayed yet. If you are interested in me, please contact my dog mom Brandi at 530-953-6558

PIease Read Before Adopting a Basenji in California
    Basenji Dogs can make good pets in California if they match your IifestyIe. The Basenji is a playful, charming, energetic breed. They make excellent family pets but do best with older children. Basenjis can live in an apartment but need lots of daily exercise and long walks. A Basenji likes to chew and should be given toys and attention or it will get into trouble. Basenjis do not do well with cats and other pets beside dogs.

lnteresting Basenji Trivia Low-Cost California Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Basenjis clean themselves like cats. Basenjis do not bark but they can yodel. Basenjis have a particular dislike of wet weather.
