Rescue Me ID: 15-09-28-00724Lady and the Trump! (female)

Basenji Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Lady and the Trump!'s Story... The email to us read this way: 'Lady A639040 - She's a 4yr old mix who was picked up as a stray in North Fort Myers and never claimed. She was ok with the Officer and signed in as normal, but is way too fearful here. She's full grown and a petite 28lbs. She's a cute little girl but needs to get out of here'. That is the information we got from her and that is it. This is generally what we have to make a decision with: not much. Sometimes we go to see if we can rescue them, but most of the time we go by instinct and see how it will turn out. This is again a great case of pure Love. Lady, when we got her, was so ... (Read More)scared and had just got spayed, so she was hurting to the point, she snapped. That is the only way they can express their fear and hurt. We took her and we knew something was not right after the spay. Lady could not pee and had blood in her urine. So before she went to her foster Mom Connie, we took her to the Vet and actually found out she had a urinary tract infection which is common after surgery. Now we can report she is doing quite well. She made good with her foster Mom in her crate, and as soon as Connie opened the door, Lady started to explore the house and the yard. She is very people friendly and great with other dogs as well. She is 28 Lbs and very pretty, with her sable color and white chest and feet. She looks actually smaller than her actual weight. She is, of course, potty-trained and is now adoptable. Would like to meet her please fill out the application at under the tab 'forms'. Thanks for your interest. Her adoption fee is $130.00 + $20.00 for microchip registration. (Less)

Basenji Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Luna was not due to the fact she was cowering in a corner and unapproachable. She was lost without her family! But they kept her alive and thought that maybe a Rescue group would take her and work with her..Luna is now fostered on Ft Myers Beach, and is in our house. In twenty four hours she already made a lot of improvements. She just started to play with Lulu (our little "Mutt' miracle worker who helps rehabilitate our dogs), being touched by our daughter Caprice and goes on the sofa and sleeps there. Luna spent her first night in her own bed and didn't make a peep. Since then Luna is doing better and better by the hour. She comes ... (Read More)closer to us and sniffs us. She is wagging her tail more and more and look at us with those big eyes. It has been a while now that she is with us and Luna is such a MUSH. completely submissive and is so relax. Her favorite thing is to lay on the couch with her belly up. That is complete trust. She is great in walks, great when she meets stranger. she has a big heart and needs someone to love. Please fill out the application on under 'Forms' if you would like to meet her. There is a $20.00 for the microchip registration (Less)

Basenji Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered 

    My father recently passed away and left behind 2 beautiful dogs. I am looking for a forever home for them. This one is Charley. He is 9 years old. He loves to play and he loves his back scratched. He is a very happy dog. His life time buddy is Harley ID # 15-08-14-00109. I would like them to be together, but as long as they each find a loving home, I'm sure they will be happy.

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-01-00103Jim (male)

Basenji    Age: Young Adult

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

    FL - Please welcome Jim to Camp Basenji! This friendly, four-year-old boy is remarkably obedient - for a basenji - as long as distractions aren't too great. Jim is friendly and playful, though he can be a bit much for other dogs at times. He tends to be quite domineering if another dog gives him 'the look.' Jim is learning to leave a challenge and will need his adopters to continue with attentive guidance. He is a bigger boy, ~28.5 pounds, so he is also learning to be a bit more gentle for compatibility with the smaller and weaker crowd. He needs enough time to see that his humans are fair and balanced, and then is quite trusting of anything ... (Read More)they do. Adopters must be committed to setting up a boundary area (a very secure pen or very large crate) where Jim can take a time out if he is getting too worked up. He should have this available for several months following adoption to make sure that the proper behaviors and respect for boundaries are established in his new home. It is unknown how he will be with children or cats and he is not good with small male dogs, so an adoptive home without any small children, cats or small dogs is preferred. He must have a canine companion - he does not like to be alone. Jim's pushy behavior with other dogs makes him unsuitable for homes with small children. He is an avid counter surfer, so counters must be kept clear. Kitchen time should be well-supervised. Jim is DNA Clear/Normal for Fanconi. His adoption fee is $200. If you are interested in Jim, please complete an application 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.

    Basenjis clean themselves like cats. Basenjis do not bark but they can yodel. Basenjis have a particular dislike of wet weather.
