Animal ID: DHCoco (female)

Basenji Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello there! My name is Coco, and I'm a playful, affectionate, and charming 36-pound dark red Basenji/ Vizsla mix gal who was born in November 2017. If I look familiar, it's because Basenjis were prominent in Egyptian hieroglyphics! But I don't have a Basenji's 'corkscrew' tail or white markings, and I'm solid red and a little bigger like a Vizsla. Actually, I'm probably a Heinz 57 mix, but I'm just as lovable as they come. I was found as an orphan pup by a Good Samaritan, who knew to take me to my future Buster's Friends' foster mom. She promises me that she'll find me a wonderful forever home, and I trust her. I'm an energetic pup who will ... (Read More)thrive on lots of exercise and long walks with you. I'm intelligent and currently undergoing puppy kindergarten so that I'll be an even more delightful companion. By the way, I do great around the other dogs at the doggie day care, but I haven't been tested around kids or cats yet. If you're looking for a calm, quiet, and loyal companion when I grow up, I'm the girl for you! Please arrange to meet me so I can cover your face with puppy kisses. Coco is updated on shots, spayed, dewormed, and heartworm negative. She will be microchipped after her adoption is finalized. Her adoption fee is $175 for puppies 9 months old or younger, cash or check payable to Buster's Friends. Please click the contact button if you are interested in Coco, and we can arrange for you to meet her. To adopt one of our dogs, you must fill out our adoption application and be approved by one of our adoption counselors. To make the process more efficient, download the adoption application at First save and then open it; then you can print it and fill it out. (Less)

    Reba is one of the easiest fosters I've ever had and I can't figure out why she hasn't been adopted yet! She loves other dogs and is super friendly with all people! She's completely content with laying around the house but is totally down to wrestle with the other dogs. She's laid back and rarely barks. House broken and crate trained. About 30 pounds, making her the perfect sized companion!

Basenji Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    COURTESY POST Hi my name is Kilo'|that's pronounced 'Key-Low'. Perfect name for me you see since I'm the opposite of Low-Key!! HA!! Get it? Ok, enough about my name, let me tell you about my splendid self. I'm friendly, happy, exceedingly affectionate and full of spunk. My foster mom says I'm also quite alert and inquisitive. Duh, of course I am! If I don't know what's happening around me, how can I be sure to keep my family safe? I am crate trained, though I'm pretty darn trustworthy so when allowed free roam I won't mess with your stuff unless I am extremely bored. I'm housebroken and have a beautiful soft short coat so I ... (Read More)don't shed much. And, I am not a barker, though I do talk and howl. I'm eager to please and a fast learner. OH! Did I mention I love to play? I'm pretty much a professional player!!! In fact, I'm certain I have a PHD in playing! As I'm sure you know, a canine PHD is an advanced PHROLICKING Degree! This means that not only am I a great player, I can also teach you and any other dogs you have how to play like a pro!! Although I adore playing with my humans, especially medium-big energetic kids, I'm not above entertaining myself. Just give me some toys, specially the squeaky kind and watch me amuse myself. I love all dogs, big and medium that I've met. I'm not sure about little toy breeds or cats as I haven't had the opportunity to meet any of these yet. Ok, so if your looking for a convenient sized spirited young adult dog and you have a playful heart and time to train me, what are you waiting for? I am ready to bounce my way into my new forever family soon!! (Less)

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