Animal ID: 1094Bunny (female)

Basenji Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Here's Bunny, one of ASF's non-Aussie breeds that somehow find their way into the group. LOL! I'm not sure what breed she is but she's active and playful and can keep up with the the big dogs. Bunny is less than a year old and likely won't weigh more than 20 pounds or so but what she lacks in size she makes up for in cuteness. Bunny came from a hoarding situation and probably wasn't handled much as a young puppy so she is skittish about being picked up. She will cuddle if you're sitting or lying down. Her potty training is coming along with a dog door and she is not destructive indoors. Bunny is being fostered in the Florida panhandle. ... (Read More)Bunny's adoption fee is $325. All proceeds go towards future rescues. If you are interested in adopting Bunny please fill out an application at (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-29-00247Lucy (female)

Basenji Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Our daughter picked up Lucy off the street about three months ago. She is very affectionate but is apparently, a man in her life was very mean to her. She is male aggressive for about five minutes. Then she'll flip over and require guys to rub her belly. We've taken her to a trainer. She is always perfect for the trainer. Unfortunately, we are never home so she doesn't receive the attention she deserves or needs. That leads to a bit of hyperactivity. If you have a large yard (she loves to run), a big heart and some time to share, Lucy is the dog for you. I have a ton of pictures I can send if you'd like to see them.

Basenji Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Dixie is a peppy 7-8 year old medium-sized, sweet girl. Although heartworm positive, it does not hold her back from anything. Her heartworm treatment is being paid for by her rescue group (4 Lucky Dogs Pet Rescue, Inc.) and she is available via a foster-to-adopt status, which will be finalized at the end of her treatment. She's very calm in the house and prefers to curl up on something soft, preferably next to you and with her head on your lap, if possible. She is most definitely a shadow and will follow you around the house, but she'll gladly stay on her bed, as long as you don't go out of her sight. Dixie is still learning how to walk ... (Read More)on a leash and loves to go on walks. She also loves squeaky toys and to play ball, however she prefers that you fetch it from her after she gets the ball. She encourages you to chase her to retrieve that ball!! She's also perfectly content playing ball solo, she throws it down from her mouth then pounces on it. She does steal dirty laundry if you leave it on leave on the floor, but just to take it to bed and lay on it. She is no wallflower and Dixie may challenge a resident dog at first as she settles in, but she quickly responds to a firm correction. She is protective of her people and like any good guard dog lets you know when someone is at the door, but always greets people with a wiggle butt. Dixie is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. She is being fostered in the Tampa Bay area with 3 other dogs. Her adoption fee is $100. If you are interested in adopting Dixie please will out an application on our website at (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-09-00062Mimi (female)

Basenji Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This is a heartbreaking choice to even post Mimi for rescue. We love her and she is by far the best of our three dogs with our son, who is 14 months old. She is so good with kids! She is great with adults as well, as long as she approaches you, but she is amazing with children. She wants to chase cats when we are on walks, I've never seen her with a cat. She is NOT good with our other two dogs and has gotten worse and worse. She attacks both, but especially the smaller female. She won't let the larger male lay on the beds near her or go into 'their room.' We rescued her from Benin (West Africa), along with our other two dogs. We ... (Read More)brought them all with us to California and we lived in a small apartment. We walked them three to four times a day and never had an issue. She was the best with our son when we brought him home and continues to be. We then moved from LA to Tampa, we drove across the country with the three dogs and our 3 month old. We have a large yard and the dogs are indoor/outdoor and doing well, we still walk them once a day. Another thing! For four weeks, between leaving our apartment in California and our move to Tampa, we lived with my grandmother and the three dogs stayed with friends, in their garage and yard. They have three children under 6 and the three dogs had so much fun, they had a yard and playmates every day. I would LOVE for Mimi to go to an active family with children. She loves to play, she loves to go on walks, she loves to be loved and pet. This photo is a photo of her when she was younger, I have many photos of her and would be happy to share them with you. I've taken her and the other two to dog parks and they've never gotten in any fights, but she does get excited and chase dogs and act like she's going to nip. Up until this point, shes never attacked another dog, only my first two. (Less)

Basenji Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Senji is a 2-3 Basenji mix. She is house and crate trained. She walks great on a leash and is not a barker. She loves to run and play and is active. She would make a great addition to a family, especially with kids, or would do great as a jogging partner. She just loves to run. She also loves to cuddle and makes an awesome couch potato. She loves car rides and is always up to going along with you. She is dog friendly but likes to chase kitties so a no kitty home is preferred.

Basenji Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Introducing the lovely, Princess Elsa. She is a 2 yr old carolina/hound mix and weighs about 40 lbs. She's a young, playful but dominant dog who would love a dog playmate. Elsa would definitely want to be the boss. Seems to like kids of all ages and women, sometimes seems startled by men. HATES bikes and skateboards, but can probably get past that. Does well with most dogs after proper introductions. Is not kennel, food or toy aggressive (no space or resource guarding seen at all!) Energetic, so will need lots of exercise every day, either a fenced yard or a running partner. Loves to play fetch outside and with toys inside. Tries to engage ...

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.

lnteresting Basenji Trivia Low-Cost Florida Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Basenjis clean themselves like cats. Basenjis do not bark but they can yodel. The running of a Basenji has been compared to the gait of a horse.
