Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Fearful/Anxious 

    Little Girl was running through the streets scared during a huge storm. She found an old abandoned house and set up new home there for several weeks. We finally spotted her again and began to win her over with Roasted Chicken! She was finally caught and quickly taken to the vet for a a full check up. No owner has been found. She is a little beauty. Has great ears, a cute freckled nose and pretty markings. The most curly, corkscrew tail when she is happy and relaxed! She is spayed, up to date on shots, dewormed and microchipped! She is small, yet sturdy at 21 lbs. She is about 1 yrs old. She LOVES her crate and her room. Takes her ... (Read More)toys into her crate and cuddles them. She has not had a single potty accident either! She would LOVE a quiet home with someone that will let her warm up at her own pace. She is SHY, but super sweet and playful once she gets to know you. She loves to play with a bouncing ball and will fetch sticks! She is smart too. Able to figure out things fast. LOVES treats (chicken) and will be easy to teach new commands since she is treat motivated. Now knows Sit and C'mon, and Down. She REQUIRES a SECURE YARD - must be wood and at least 6 ft tall. She is small enough to slip though wrought iron fencing and under gaps greater than 3 inches. She seems very interested in playing with our small foster dogs, but we have not been able to introduce them, as she was just spayed. As soon as she is healed, she can play with them. She seems to be afraid of larger dogs. Please include FULL CONTACT INFORMATION - including telephone #. You will not receive a response unless your contact info is given, thanks to endless spammers.

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-11-00189Stella (female)

Basenji Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Stella...she loves kids and other dogs, although she takes time to warm up, once she's comfortable, she's loving and loyal. Stella is picky about people at first, but once she trusts you, and knows she's safe, she becomes a totally different dog. We saw this the moment we picked her up from shelter as she is the poster dog for before and after pics. She loves her crate at night and obediently rests in it when the door is left open. She is potty trained and goes on puppy pads if available and stands by the door to let you know she needs to go. Stella is a lover and wants to be with you...never leaving your side. She loves car rides and hikes ... (Read More)in the park. She adores attention. She listens to commands but often confuses 'stand' for 'sit' because she does try to walk like a human and do tricks for you. Stella is an indoor and outdoor dog, but needs a privacy fence so she doesn't jump...this girl could win the Dog Olympics for jumping if it existed! Adoption Fee: $125 (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. Basenjis do not bark but they can yodel. The running of a Basenji has been compared to the gait of a horse.
