Basenji Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is the story of a little boy named at the Shelter, ' Superman'. Believe me he had nothing of a Superman when we saw him. This little guy could not even be found; the volunteer at the Shelter told us that he was under the bed hiding, completely petrified. He had come in a few days earlier as a stray. He had to be dragged out of the stall in order for us to look at him. He was so scared, but as soon as we went in a quiet room he jumped on the lady's lap and wanted to be held. That was so sweet and so sad to see him. We knew that he was not going to make it to adoption unless rescued and given to a foster parent. Libby, our new foster Mom, ... (Read More)was there with us and that was her first time at the Shelter. She was so overwhelmed and decided that she would be the Mommy for this little guy. No problem! and to this day she doesn't regret it one bit. That little guy is named now 'Chester', which is much better for him. He is housebroken, adorable, submissive, comes when you call him, and super funny!!! Someone had taken the time to teach him. Never abused but just escaped, and never found his home back again. He was not microchiped at that time, but now he will never get lost again: we did it for him. He is only 2 years old about 12 LBS, and really would make a great pet for someone kind and who wants to share some fun time. Want to meet him please fill out the application on line at under 'forms.' You may call also 239-281-0739. Thanks for giving Chester a second chance. He is worth every little bit of it!!! (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Jack is a very special boy. He was pulled from a high kill shelter in rural Georgia and adopted from rescue within just a few days! After some months went by, Jack's former foster parents were contacted by an emergency vet in the middle of the night. Jack had been very severely beaten. His adopter allowed someone into their house and while they were gone, they hurt him. Luckily, Jack's former foster parents came to his rescue and paid all his vet bills. He was in rough shape when they brought him home, both mentally and physically. But as his wounds healed, so did his heart. With lots of tlc, Jack learned to love people again. He still has a ... (Read More)few physical scars, but other than that, he is completely healed. Because of his past, Jack is very shy at first both with new people and new animals. He warms up so quickly once he realizes he is still safe, but he will need a family that is willing to go slow with him and who understands his ordeal. He is the sweetest most loving dog after he initially meets you and he never forgets a face, furry or not. Jack is worth every bit of effort it takes to bring him out of his shell! He is a snuggle bunny once he sees he can trust. Jack will require some special consideration due to his past, but the perfect family is out there waiting for him and he never lets his bad experience get him down! If you are interested in meeting jack, please contact his foster parents to set up a meeting with this great guy!!! (Jack's weight is 21 lbs) (Less)

    Toby is a very statuesque, noble young man and exhibits all the desirable traits of the Pharoah Hound. This breed is known for being intelligent, active and loyal and Toby fits the bill perfectly. He is independent and possesses a calm demeanor even when surrounded by much smaller high energy canines. Toby exhibited NO signs of aggression or jealousy and politely backed away when other dogs pursued toys. He easily shared 'lap time' with other dogs and loves to give kisses. Toby would be best with an active, intelligent owner or family who will keep him mentally and physically fit. He is calm indoors and loves to have a good time outdoors. ... (Read More)Frisbee anyone?

    FL - Roscoe A white basenji?? Well, probably a basenji mix, this boy may be a Decker Rat Terrier ( ), 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 (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.
