Bear is a handsome 11-year-old boy who is looking for a home where he can be the center of attention. He would love to have a female companion; he is not tolerant of male dogs. Bear does not sleep with his foster humans, but given the chance he would be a great cuddler. He is also very vocal with a welcoming baroo when he is happy to see his human. Bear has not been around cats and has not been around small children, so only children over the age of eight who can understand boundaries will be considered.

If you think you could provide Bear with love, activity, and evening cuddle time, please read the data sheet below carefully, complete the BRAT adoption form (if you have not previously done so) and contact the BRAT coordinator, Janet Pace.

The coordinator's link will take you to a form that will ask you your name, email address, the city and state you live in, why this dog is perfect for your family, a typical day in your household, and, if applicable, how you plan to transport Bear.

There is an adoption fee of $150.00 for Bear. This fee is used for the extensive costs associated with vetting and otherwise caring for Bear and future Basenjis in rescue. BRAT adopters receive a dog that has been spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, treated for fleas and internal worms if necessary, DNA tested for Fanconi syndrome (dogs under 10), and heartworm tested. Our dogs get recommended dental work. When indicated, we test our dogs for thyroid deficiencies. They are also temperament evaluated. In addition, BRAT provides free lifetime post-adoption counseling to help deal with behavioral or health issues. Finally, we provide a free lifetime identification tag connected to our "lost dog" toll free number.
