The Basenjis featured as Coming Soon are not yet available for adoption and at this time we are not accepting adoption applications for them.

These are Basenjis in our care who are in various stages of our adoption process: Basenjis who are recent intakes and in the early stages of fostering; Basenjis who are receiving much-needed vetting or rehabilitation to overcome issues related to prior neglect; and Basenjis we hope to post for adoption soon. Read each dog’s description for details about the dog’s status. Additional information about each dog will be available once the dog is posted on the website as an Available Basenji.

Not every Basenji flagged as Coming Soon will be posted for adoption because we allow BRAT’s dedicated foster families to adopt the dogs they foster. Also, when a dog has special needs, our coordinators sometimes search the applicant database to find an adopter who is the best match for that dog. Other times, we find that a dog has serious medical issues that require extensive vetting and long-term fostering.

We are committed to providing our Basenjis with both the veterinary care and the safe and nurturing foster care they need to ensure a happy and stable placement in a loving forever home.

We charge a nominal adoption fee, but our placement fees very often do not cover the expenses to achieve our mission. If you would like to help us care for our rescued Basenjis, please consider a donation to BRAT.

Nala and Benji

Adult Red & White Bonded Pair
Alabama, POSTED 09/10/2018

Meet Nala (age 7) and Benji (age 13), a delightful bonded pair currently living with their foster in Huntsville, Alabama. Benji is the one with the white blaze on his face. They are the best of buds and want very much to find a loving home where they can stay together forever. Benji loves other dogs, but can be a little shy with people until he really gets to know them. Nala does not really do well with other dogs besides Benji. She is a playful and sweet love-sponge who will steal your heart.

They say the best things come in pairs, and it is definitely true with this duo. They will be looking for their forever home soon … could it be you?

More information will be posted to the website when this dog is ready for adoption. Please send questions and comments to Deb Hughes.
