Rescue Me ID: 17-01-19-00607Twiggy (female)

Basenji Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My foster mom says I am one of the happiest fosters she's ever had and show it by dancing on my hind legs! I was on the street for a while and was so skinny that she named me Twiggy. But since being a K-9 Angel, I'm getting plenty of food and I'm so happy. My two favorite things in life are going on walks and snuggling. When my mom gets the lea sh out I do my little dance. I love exploring the neighborhood. After my walk, I'm ready to curl up right next to you - or in your lap if you let me! My foster mom has taught me to sit on a comfy blanket on the floor just in case my future family doesn't want me on the furniture. I'm happy as long as ... (Read More)I'm close. I'm a great yoga pal for my foster mom too. I sit quietly on a pillow next to her so she doesn't get lonely and sometimes I show her my down dog. I am completely house trained and crate trained. I sleep all night long and stay quiet until I'm let out in the morning. I'm also comfortable in my crate curled up on my bed if my family is away. I know to only chew my toys and have never chewed anything I'm not supposed to. I like to let my family know what's going on outside, so if someone walks by I bark. I am learning to quiet right down though if my foster mom tells me to. I'm also learning some basic commands like sit and down. They have these things called cats here. I know I'm not supposed to chase them but to be honest I forget most of the time. I'm a bit shy around people when I first meet them, but give me an hour or so and help me get to know you with some treats and I'll be your forever friend. Twiggy is a Female Basenji / Chihuahua Mix that we estimate to be born around January 18, 2016 and weighs 16 lbs. PUPPIES: Young puppies that have not had their second round of puppy shots will not be at the Adoption Center for our weekend adoption events. If you are interested in adopting a puppy, please fill out an application on our website http://www.k-9angelsrescue.org/adoption_process_k-9_angels_rescue.html. If your application is approved, a meeting can be arranged. Also, we only adopt young puppies locally due to the 4 month timeframe it takes to get them fully vetted and altered. OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS: We do allow out-of-state adoptions for dogs, however, the adopter MUST come to Houston to get the dog and take the dog home with them. We do not allow our dogs to be shipped. However, we only adopt young puppies locally, due to the 4 month timeframe it takes to get them fully vetted and altered.

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-30-00235Efrain (male)

Basenji Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Efrain is my name, being cute is my game! I mean, I'm shy, so I'm not one to brag, but look at my ears and how I sleep with my tongue out (always!). I guess I sleep hard like this because I spend my days with other dogs, which I love, and I play and play and play. I really enjoy dogs, and am careful to be respectful and gentle in my play. I don't steal toys or food. I follow other dogs around my foster mom's house and learn from them (don't tell her little guy, but I think I'm smarter than he is, I've been sitting for my treats and crating up on command). My foster mom says I've been such a good boy. I am potty trained, I figured out out ... (Read More)to go to the back door and let her know I need to go out. I'm still a baby and little, so I do need to go out often, so be prepared! Now, I have to admit, I don't love being in a crate by myself - if I can see people or other dogs I'm ok with it (my foster brother is crated next to me), but otherwise I worry I might be missing out on some fun and so I'll cry for a bit in my crate, hoping you'll invite me to the party! At night I've proved that I can be left out of the crate and I sleep for 8+ hours without getting into trouble or having any accidents. Speaking of being shy, I really am. I LOVE other dogs, but need time to get to love the humans - but if I have a dog brother or sister, and they trust their human, then after some time, so will I. It could take several days, so I hope you will be patient with me because in the end I'll sneak up on you for cuddles and it will be so great! Efrain is thought to be a Basenji mix, and his estimated date of birth is 6/25/16. As of 1/5/17, he weighs 35 pounds, and will probably get up to 55ish pounds. .

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 have a particular dislike of wet weather. Basenjis can easily climb over chain link fences. The running of a Basenji has been compared to the gait of a horse.
