Arrival Story:
From what I was told, Bella started out as a pet-store puppy, then at some point ended up in a pound. When I found her, she was advertised for sale online, and she was living chained up in an urban backyard during the day, and in a crate at night. She was underweight, completely untrained (including housetraining), unvaccinated, unspayed and had not been on heartworm medication. I could tell from the start that she was a handful, and I really didn't have the money to buy her...but I couldn't leave her in those conditions, so she hopped in the car with her new brother Frodo, and we were on our way. On the ride home, she introduced me to the Basenji scream when she got her foot caught in the seat.

Bella is a handful. She almost ended up needing a new home, since the non-furred people I live with aren't very understanding about the chewing and the destroying and the pooping on the floor. But, after meeting some of the nice people that work with Basenji Rescue and Transport (, we decided to keep working with her. Hopefully she appreciates it and stops eating my underwear. If you have a Basenji or Basenji mix that needs a new home, please contact BRAT or email me personally for more info...and even better, if you're looking for a Basenji or Basenji mix to adopt, there are always dogs needing homes!
