    Mindy had a hard start in life. She was found roaming the streets of North Carolina where she was clearly pregnant and had puppies somewhere. Unfortunately the puppies where never found but Mindy was taking to a shelter when she only had hours to find a foster home. Even through all this Mindy was a loving trusting girl who wanted love and cuddles from people. You would never be able to tell that Mindy had such a hard life before she was brought into the rescue. She just wants to be your friend and be around people. She weights about 30 pounds and loves everyone. Mindy is the dog that will go outside and run in the backyard with you or go ...

She is medium energy and loves to run around our fenced in backyard with the other dogs. Mindy is getting better on leash. She does pull when she is excited and first starts the walk. She enjoys hiking and being around people. She is a little shy when she first meets new people, she will get low to the ground and and inch towards new people wagging her tail. She would do best in a home with no cats. She does chase them but just wants to play with them. She has never met kids but if the adopter is willing to come met Mindy and bring the kids that could be an opinion. She does jump to get attention so older children would be better. Mindy is learning sit and down and is slowly getting them. She will be required to take obedience classes with the new owners. It's a fun time for both the dog and human and a good bonding experience. She is house trained and only had a few accidents when she arrived here. Mindy is also crate trained and will go in the crate willingly if a treat is involved. She can live with dog-savvy cats and will be required to be taken to obedience classes upon adoption. Mindy is up to date on vaccines, spayed, and is heartworm negative. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Basenji in New Jersey
    Basenji Dogs can make good pets in New Jersey 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 New Jersey Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Basenjis clean themselves like cats. Basenjis do not bark but they can yodel. Basenjis can easily climb over chain link fences. The running of a Basenji has been compared to the gait of a horse.
