Chloe (pronounced KLOH-ee) is a special little red and white, six-year-old Basenji girl looking for a new home. Chloe originally came to BRAT from a puppy mill situation. Like many Basenjis, Chloe can be a bit aloof, but she can also be a professional at cuddling. She likes her own space when it comes to other dogs being around, but to her humans, so wants to be close. She likes older children and shares the bed with one in her foster home and she prefers to sleep under the covers. Chloe would be very happy in a home where she is the only dog.

Chloe does suffer from underactive thyroid, which is controlled with inexpensive medication. She is healthy otherwise; she’s been DNA tested for Fanconi syndrome and is clear/normal.

Chloe does not like the camera, so it is difficult to get pictures that really do her justice. She would rather be close to her person and not far enough away for pictures.

If you are looking for a Basenji that is happy being an only fur child and loves to spend cuddle time with her person, Chloe is waiting for you.

If you think you could provide Chloe 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, Linda Webb-Hilliard.

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 Chloe.

There is an adoption fee of $275.00 for Chloe. This fee is used for the extensive costs associated with vetting and otherwise caring for Chloe 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. Seniors over 10 get a senior panel. 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.
