    Otto is the most loving, caring dog you will ever meet. He loves attention, and is a cuddle bug. He has the cutest underbite too! We took him in about 3-4 years ago, and now me and my husband work all day and we can't give him the attention that he needs and deserves.We would love for him to go to a good home, where he can roam the yard (fenced would be best) and be loved and adored. He is up to date on his rabies shots as well.

Basenji Mix    Age: Senior

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

    My name is Chester and my human Dad died leaving me all alone in Palm Coast, Florida. There is no close family so my Dad's friend and neighbor, Mike, is trying to get me to rescue to be re-homed. I am a neutered adult Basenji mix with all my vaccinations current (see attached vet history). I am a great companion and pet. Everyone that meets me says I am adorable (see my photos attached) and a very good boy. I love to ride in the car, go on walks and am not a barker. Mike would keep me but he has severe allergies. I have only been around my devoted Dad and Mom who also died and other adults. So it is probably best that my new home ... (Read More)not have young children. Dogs are okay, but cats are an unknown. I come with my food, bed, toys, collar, and leash as well as a donation and offer of transport. Mike will do everything possible to assist you with finding me a wonderful new home. Please contact him at: (386) 237-1353 or He will gladly answer any of your questions. Health Records available. Thank you for caring, Chester and Mike (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-20-00117Shylo (female)

Basenji Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Name : Shylo Age: 7 years Breed : Terrier Mix Weight : 27 lbs Microchipped : Yes Color : white with brindle spots (short hair) Crate trained happy dog who loves snuggles, belly rubs, and food. She is good with other dogs and great with kids - especially little ones. Being a true terrier, she does run when off leash (except when playing near water) so we hope for a home with a fenced in yard or electric fence. Probably not good with cats, but we have never tried living with cats so not sure! Loves to go swimming and play fetch in the water. We are looking for a home for her because Shylo is not able to get the attention she deserves in ... (Read More)our house having two little kids and another dog. Our biggest problem is that she runs away when she gets out or off leash so with our growing family it makes it hard for us to bring her along when we leave the house or have the time to take her for walks. She ends up being crated too often. She needs to go for walks and get more snuggles and play time. We are looking for an active home where hopefully she can have a yard and someone who can walk her regularly. She loves car rides and is really a great dog all around. We just can't give her the attention she needs to have a happy well rounded life! Please know that it is very important that we find her the right home and we are happy to give it a trial run for anyone who we feel is the right fit for her. Shylo is always welcome back into our home should it not work out. We will request to see your house and will also request a reference if you are interested. She is a great dog who we think deserves a great responsible owner who is truly the right fit. We would provide crate, leash, vaccination updates, and collar for anyone interested in helping us find her the right home. (Less)

Basenji Mix    Age: Young Adult

    Hi I'm Buddy. I'm about 3 1/2 years old. That's what my mom thinks anyway. She rescued me from a shelter almost 2 years ago, when I was a year old. No one knows where I was before that. My favorite thing to do is to go to dog beaches. I'll fetch anything you throw into the water and I love to make new friends! I'll play with anyone from Chihuahuas to Mastiffs (cats are a little too exciting right now, but my mom is teaching me how to play nicely with them). As much as I love playing a running around, I'm also very content with cuddling! I love going under blankets. My mom says I'm really smart and pick up on training very easily! ... (Read More)Sometimes I'm too smart for my own good :) I love my mom so much though that I get confused about who's allowed in the house and who's not. New people coming to the house can be very scary so I want to keep my mom safe, especially from men. My mom works full time and is now going to school full time so we don't have time for walks and playing like we used to. She is teaching me how to meet people and we've made a lot of progress but she says I need more time than she can give me. I'm a very loving boy that just needs some attention and direction. (Less)

    Very sweet-natured adult basenji mix needs a new home. She gets along well with our cat. She is a little timid with new people and new dogs. Likes to wander, but not aggressive. We recently moved and have been unable to keep her from getting out at the new house. Love her, but afraid she's going to get run over if this continues.

     Hi, my name is Lanie. I am a basenji/beagle mix and was born December 21, 2008. I am a very sweet dog and love to get attention. I love to run outside and play with other dogs. I am scared and cautious of new people at first, but really friendly once I get to know them. I am medium sized, about 30 lbs, tall and skinny. I am really good inside and am housetrained and crate trained. I am also spayed and current on shots and microchipped. I will need a family that will have lots of patience with me while I adjust to my new home, I would do better without kids or kids over 13. I enjoy walking at the park and going on car rides. I was rescued ... (Read More)from a shelter. My adoption fee is $100. Home visit and vet reference required. Located in Tallahassee but transport is available to Orlando (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.

lnteresting Basenji Trivia Low-Cost Florida Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Basenjis clean themselves like cats. Basenjis do not bark but they can yodel. Basenjis have a particular dislike of wet weather. Basenjis can easily climb over chain link fences.
