Basenji Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    My name is Buddy. I am a sweet, extremely happy boy with such positive and infectious energy. I am approximately 7 years old and DNA verified I am a mix of Jack Russell Terrier and Basenji. I weigh about 17 pounds. I am good on car rides and love my walks. I am a good boy and stay on sidewalks. I am used to being walked on a leash with my harness on. I can motivate anyone to stay on their exercise routines. I enjoy my brisk walks and have boundless energy! I'm just very easy to love. Because of my breeds I am very high energy, in spite of being around 7 years old. I act like a puppy. I like to squeak my toys and throw them around, run, ... (Read More)jump and play. I can walk fast and for long periods of time and I never ever run out of energy, love, or kisses. I am great with humans of all ages. I am suitable with good natured younger dogs that can get past my initial over-excitement, sniffing, and jumping on them. After the initial excitement, I only do that the first meeting but once I am in the household, I do not continue to do that. I just want to be friends! I just love to play so much! I have never met a cat but probably shouldn't live with one due to my energy level. I need to be your only baby but I will keep you VERY entertained and busy so one of me is all you will ever need. I am very sweet and happy all the time. I have a zest for life that is infectious. I need a forever family that is active and will spoil me with attention, plenty of playtime and walks. I would be best for a family with Terrier experience or someone who understands a high energy level dog.

She prefers males, but she has been good with most dogs she has met. She has been with numerous dogs with no issues and there is only one dog that she does not like. That happens to be a permanent resident of the rescue who manages another resident of the rescue. She does great in doggy daycare and loves it. ... (Read More)She doesn't much interact with the other dogs as she likes to hang out with the staff and hang out and explore. She does not need another dog or friend. She likes human contact but has been around lots of other dogs. She loves and thrives on attention. Kanzi will only adopted to someone in Central Indiana. Kanzi is great with kids, but would be best with older kids who would respect her and not man-handle her. She loves walks and rides, food (ANY), toilet paper, anything she can get into. She also loves cuddles and sitting on furniture. Kanzi needs someone to be with her and not leave her alone for long periods during the day regularly.

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