Basenji Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! My name is Tonks and I am my mommy' sweet baby girl. She found me on the side of the road emancipated, beaten, bitten, with a wire wrapped around my neck and cigarette burns on my head. She got me back healthy and happy but she works 3 jobs, has two businesses, goes to school and doesn't have a whole lot of time for me. We're pretty sure I'm a Basenji cross, not only do I yodel but I mean come on and look at my pretty face. My mommy would like to find me someone new to love me. It breaks her heart because she loves me so much, but she wants to do what's best for me. I'm mostly potty trained (if you forget to take me out its not my fault) ... (Read More)and crate trained (it took mommy forever to teach me that!!) but I am a basenji so I WILL eat your favorite remote control or get into your trash if it's left out. My mommy is willing to drive anywhere she needs to to find me a wonderful home, and since she saw how much people here love their Basenjis, she thought she would start here. Please let me know if you are interested in rehoming me, and please be understanding if my mommy cries a whole lot. Love, Tonks. PS: Miss Lauren just reminded me I should probably mention that I am up to date on rabies, bordetella/kennel cough, canine influenza and parvo/distemper vaccinations. I am up to date on heartworm prevention. I am a sweet girl, but very hyper so my mommy hasn't ever had me around kids. I have never been aggressive, but sometimes I forget my manners and 'mouth' a little bit. We live in Far East Texas. I love my big sister and we play very well, but she's the only dog I have ever been around. I am not spayed, but my mommy will have my doctor do that before I go anywhere. And most importantly, I am my mommy' sweet baby. If for ANY REASON my new home decides they can't keep me, my mommy will drop whatever she's doing and come get me. Any time day or night. (Less)

    Bolt was in an animal control facility and ready to be euthanized. He is approximately 7 years old, active and needs someone to take him to the dog park for long walks or jobs. Bolt is a happy fellow! He has also been DNA tested so we know his genetic make up! Bolt was adopted and lived with a family for more than a year and was returned when the family lost their home due to a job loss. Photo courtesy of Mary Pasicatan Photography.

Animal ID: No ID-Foster HomeRupert (male)

Basenji Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rupert is a neutered, young adult male--a little over a year old. He is a Basenji mix, meaning he is a very quiet dog. He does bark, but only occasionally. Rupert is perfectly happy when given the chance to lay as close as possible to you for as long as you will allow him. He is rather stubborn, but will sit with some encouragement. He needs work on the leash and practice not jumping up. He is great with my older daughters, but like his furry brother Rex would probably do better in a home with older children. He is incredibly strong and will knock you off balance because he's so excited to see you. Rupert does seem like a one or two ... (Read More)person dog. He does play with enthusiasm with Rex, but I think he would prefer having siblings that weren't so energetic all the time. I have no idea how he is with cats as I have never seem him around them. Special adoption fee of $50! Contact Susan at (Less)

Basenji Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Radar is completely adorable! We are unsure on his specific breed but have made our best guess, but really with his personality and adorable ears, it doesn't matter! Radar was found with his 3 brothers dumped on the side of the road scavenging for food. He came right up to me, jumped in the car and said take me to safety! He has a beautiful coat and his eyes are stunning. Radar is pretty quiet and laid back but playful. He is very loveable and simply wants to please. He is housetrained, uses a doggy door and sleeps through the night without a problem. He has not been a chewer. He loves to snuggle and gives gentle little kisses. He is a ... (Read More)little timid but warms up quickly. He gets along with all the other rescue dogs. Please consider adding this sweet boy to your family where he will never be dumped on the side of the road again. If interested in Radar you can fill out an application at (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.

    Basenjis clean themselves like cats. The running of a Basenji has been compared to the gait of a horse.
