    This is a courtesy posting. This is not a Camp Basenji dog. Meet Bunny! Bunny is a darling 6 year old female Basenji mix who is looking for a loving home after the death of her owner. Sweet Bunny needs a special home that will give her the love she deserves. She is an active dog who loves to go for walks. She loves attention and would thrive as the only dog in the home. She weighs about 27 lbs but could stand to lose a few pounds. Bunny loves to give paw and spend time with you. We would love to see Bunny in a home where someone is home with her often.

Basenji Mix    Age: Puppy

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-17-00358Jeeves (male)

Basenji Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jeeves is an about 13 year old, red and white basenji/whippet mix who is around 22 - 22.5 pounds. Jeeves is incredibly well-mannered, being perhaps the best that has ever come into our rescue. Jeeves is completely compliant with everything that is expected of him and generally very quiet, but he will greet us upon our return with a very beautiful, round roo; a pleasant reminder that he does have a voice. Even though he is very mature and well-behaved, he still has a healthy prey drive as any self-respecting sighthound should. Despite his maturity, he should not be allowed outside in an unsecure area off-leash. Jeeves should always have a ... (Read More)lanky, lean appearance relative to a pure basenji, since he appears to be part whippet. Note that he is quite mature, so rebuilding muscle lost prior to rescue and treatment with pancreatic digestive enzymes (that must be continued daily for his life) will take time. Muscle building for Jeeves is accomplished by every other day or every third day of longer walks. Given that we have seen the diagnosis of this condition often missed by vets, including specialists, previously, it is highly probable that he had the condition for some time to get down to the emaciated 14.6 pounds that he was when he first arrived. When he strayed into someone's yard, he was wearing an expensive jacket - someone loved him, but we feel that his owners quickly gave up looking for him, probably thinking that there was no way he could have survived any time outside of their yard. He does have some scars that may not be obvious in the photos that are indicative of having been on the losing side of a dog attack, leading to crepitus in damaged joints. While he will jump around on his backend in pursuit of an opposum walking on the top of a fence, he should not be expected to jump up onto beds or furniture. He can do steps, but he has only a couple around here. If you have room in your heart for this gorgeous and super easy boy, please complete the adoption application located at www.campbasenji.org. Jeeves is located in the Tampa Bay area. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-17-00304Dana (female)

Basenji    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Dana is a 22.5 pound, 8 1/2 year old red and white female basenji re-born. Formerly unsocialized with other dogs, Dana has learned the joy of basenji play and is regularly instigating play even with the youngest members of the pack. Dana has become almost too tolerant when playing with other basenji in her foster home as she now has to wear a cone to protect her neck while playing with young basenjis that are still learning to play politely. Dana is very well housebroken and respects her humans' space. While she enjoys being in the presence of her humans, she is independent enough to not be clingy. At night time, she still chooses to ... (Read More)sleep in her own bed. Dana walks well on lead and enjoys long walks. It is unknown how Dana would be with cats or children, but given that she was previously unsocialized which lead her to be previously snarky with other dogs, a home with no small children or cats is preferred. She need somebody who is willing to maintain her grain-free, fish based kibble as she does have a skin condition which appears to flare when she is fed kibble that is meat based other than fish. Currently Dana is blowing coat and her new coat is coming in much darker than any of her previous coats. Her body language can be a little confusing when first getting to know her as her facial expression always does not match her body language as she appears to have sustained damage from a previous dog attack years ago. While the scarring is slight, it does appear that she is showing the whites of her eyes at times as an indication of fear. She does enjoy watching the two horses in her current foster home through the fence, though it is unclear how she would act if there were no fence separating her from the horses. She would prefer a home with a yard with a shaded area as she will sun herself in excess. While she may initially seem very reserved and perhaps even a bit boring, this is very deceptive as she does have a lot of character. Dana will be tested for Fanconi syndrome prior to placement. If you think you could provide Dana with attention, cuddle time, and leadership, please complete the adoption application located at www.campbasenji.org. Dana is located in the Tampa Bay area.

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-17-00163Roscoe (male)

Basenji Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    FL - Roscoe A white basenji?? Well, probably a basenji mix, this boy may be a Decker Rat Terrier ( http://deckerratterrier.nrta.com/index.shtml ), which used basenji to develop the breed. This very young boy, estimated to be a year and a half old at most, is very much still a puppy. While he has picked up on proper house habits quite quickly, he has a very difficult time holding still and will pace around with lots of circles along with the occasional tail-chasing. He is extremely playful, loves a lot of toys and attention, and will need a lot of supervision to make sure that he matures into a wonderful, mature adult. Thankfully, he is ... (Read More)generally quite quiet and responds immediately to 'no bark' even when playing. He will alert you if there is something strange or new to him. He can be handled all over. He is a bit of an extremist - he will want to jump up to lick your face with enthusiasm (making him inappropriate for a home with small children), but will also cringe at a verbal correction or even at a stern look. He does want to please, but is still a bit clueless as a pup. His new owner will need to provide plenty of exercise and guidance to help Roscoe to show his love of humans and life with a calm enthusiasm. A calm and tolerant mature canine companion may be helpful. It is unknown how he would be with cats, but given his play drive, a home with cats is not appropriate. Roscoe will be DNA tested for Fanconi Syndrome. If you think you could provide Roscoe with a calm, loving home, please complete the adoption application located at www.campbasenji.org. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Basenji in Florida
    Basenji Dogs can make good pets in Florida 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.
