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 acsrescue-foster@sanantonio.gov re: ID #A262205 (Less)

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs

Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    Cookie was the most perfect girl when walking. She didn't pull, she looked back to see what to do, she heeled. She saw a little girl running towards her and her tail-end got very happy. She looks in your face and her little eyes speak to you. A receipt for a rabies vaccination is also required.

Basenji Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sarah came to us when she was about to have puppies. On Thanksgiving day she delivered 7 healthy beautiful puppies that have all found furever homes. She was a terrific mother and now it is her turn to find that happily ever after. She is a sweet dog that flips over for belly rubs as soon as you start to pet her. She loves everyone and is dog friendly. We don't know about cats. Sarah is full grown at approx. 35 lbs, and is fully vetted. If you think you could give Sarah that very special home that she deserves email . pal.rkc@gmail.com

Basenji Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Gemma is a lovable, energetic dog with beautiful white markings. She is a Basenji/Ausralian shephard mix which speaks for the brown/blue eyes. She is great with other dogs that want to play and run. In fact, she would probably do better in a home that has another dog for her to play with. She is not good for homes with cats though, which is the issue of why I have to regretfully rehome her. She loves to cuddle up next to you in bed, couch, floor etc. She is housebroken, listens well and knows several commands already. She will be a sweet and fun for an active family.

    This is Malia!!! What can we say about this super, friendly girl? She is sociable and so much fun. She gets along with other dogs and loves people. She knows how to sit and shake paws and will do anything for a treat. Malia is alert and smart and easily trainable. She is about 12-18 months old (as of mid-July). If you think that you would be interested in her please fill out an adoption application online at www.forgottendogs.org/adoption_application or contact her foster mom at kellek-9@peoplepc.com.

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.

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 www.krrtx.org. (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.
