Basenji Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 

    Hello there, I'm Sweet Glory. Just look into my beautiful eyes. You are looking at a young, sweet, loving mamma, who was almost killed! That's right, my then 2-week-old puppies and I were saved from the San Antonio ACS euthanasia list Mother's Day weekend. We have been staying with a foster family, where we have received lots of tender loving care. Now my puppies have all been adopted, and I'm ready to find my forever home! I just know there's one out there for me! I am a super sweet dog, very loving and gentle, and only about 2 years old. I weigh about 50 pounds, and I come to just above knee height, so I am really a great size! I ... (Read More)do great with people, including kids, and also with other dogs. My foster family has chickens too, and while I show some slight interest in them, it is more playfulness than wanting to eat them, and I listen when my foster family tells me to leave them alone. I am already completely housebroken; in fact I have not had a single accident since coming to my foster home! I also do great in a crate, and I am very well behaved in it, no barking, whining or trying to get out; I just lie down and relax! I already know 'sit', 'down' and 'touch', and I'm doing great with 'stay', 'come' and 'wait' too. I also walk nicely on a leash! My adoption fee is $50, and it is a donation to San Antonio Pets Alive, the organization I am being fostered through. My adoption fee will include my spay surgery, microchip, current vaccinations, deworming, heartworm prevention, flea and tick prevention and 30 days of free pet insurance. I just know that I will make someone a wonderful companion! Could that be you? I promise to be loyal, loving, amazing dog, if you will promise to love and care for me forever and ever! If you have room in your home and heart for me, please don't hesitate to contact my foster family! I can't wait to meet you! (Less)

    Cher was found on the South Side of San Antonio, along with a scruffy little terrier fellow and we have named them Sonny and Cher! Cher is as sweet as PIE and loves attention and affection. She is a great snuggle buddy and loves to sleep in bed with you. She is house broken and absolutely FABULOUS with my 2 young children! Not fabulous with my cat. :) I have a small rescue named Charming Pet Rescue. She has become a wonderful part of it and now after being spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and heartworm tested negative, she is ready for her forever home!

Animal ID: 262205Penny (female)

Basenji Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Talk about your lucky Penny! This little girl has endured so much in the past year, but she's come out shining! Penny was found by ACS several days after she had been hit by a car. Her hip and leg were both broken. They both healed on their own and, after some time and physical therapy, she walks, runs, and plays just fine. Then, after a few weeks in foster care, her foster mom started noticing blood and tumors being passed from her lady parts. She was diagnosed wih Canine Transmittable Veneral Tumors. Her awesome foster mom did a fundraiser for her, got her through chemotherapy, and now she is DISEASE FREE! Penny has also been ... (Read More)'diagnosed' with what we are calling Puppy PTSD. We are not sure why, but she is very apprehensive of new situations and is VERY scared of children. When she is afraid, she will run and hide- she has never tried to bite anyone. Once Penny knows you, she is the sweetest, most devoted companion. She loves to stick by your side, cuddle, and keep you company. Penny is 32 lbs, 3 years old, potty trained, and lives amicably with a free-roaming parrot so she'll likely be fine around cats. She does well with calm dogs. She is not terribly fond of children so a home with adults or teenagers would make her more comfortable. Penny has proven to us time and time again how resilient dogs can be. She has endured injury, scary situations, sickness, and aggressive treatments and remains a loving, devoted pet. She has been in foster care for a year and half (over 570 days!) While she recovered from everything and is now 100% ready for her forever home. If you would like to meet Penny please email re: ID #A262205 (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.

lnteresting Basenji Trivia Low-Cost Texas Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Basenjis clean themselves like cats. The running of a Basenji has been compared to the gait of a horse.
