Dogs listed on our mix page are posted as a courtesy to individuals and shelters. We list mixes with some physical characteristics that are shared by purebred Basenjis. BRAT does not propose to know the parentage of mixes and, by this statement, it informs potential adopters that it cannot and does not assure that the parentage of Basenji mixes include any Basenji. Potential adopters are advised that the most appropriate approach to selecting a companion is to objectively evaluate their own situation and needs and to match that with the personality and behavior of the dog, regardless of parentage.

Read BRAT's Mix Policies.

South Carolina (New 7/12/2019)

NORA is a sweet little Basenji mix who is looking for a new home because her current owner doesn't feel she is able to spend enough time with her. She is a very loving and cuddly girl who is about 5 years old, weighs 25 pounds, is spayed and up to date with vaccinations and preventatives. Tends to be a bit timid in new situations, is much more comfortable around women, is good with other dogs and cats, but not crazy about kids. 

NORA is a well mannered little dog who is house/crate/leash trained. She is a pretty high energy girl who can get a bit excitable, but she's calm as long as she's getting enough exercise. Her current owner would like to see her move into a home where she had another friendly dog to play with. For more information about Nora, call: 843-412-9215,or email: <>  There is a $99 adoption fee for Nora.

ELI is a 35 pound, approximately 6 month old Basenji mix, who was found on the street and needs a new home to keep him safe. He is a very loving puppy, and pretty mellow considering his age. This little guy is great with kids, and he does like other dogs but it's unknown if he's ever even met a cat. 

ELI's finders have brought him up to date with his vaccinations, and he is scheduled to be neutered. So far he is housetrained and cratetrained, and all other training is a work in progress and any new family will have to realise any future training will depend on them. If you would like to make Eli part of your family, contact his current caretakers at: (505) 804-6414, or email: <>  There is a $99 adoption fee for Eli depending on the status of his neuter. Either way this dog must be neutered.

Texas (New 6/20/2019)

LUCY is a 40 pound, 2.5 year old Basenji mix who is going to need a specific kind of home. She appears to be a very healthy, loving girl, who is spayed and up to date with shots. She gets along well with adults, kids, dogs and cats. Her problem is her separation anxiety that makes it difficult to leave her alone for more than a few hours. Up until now one of her owners has worked from home, but that situation will be changing soon, so her owners have made the difficult decision to rehome her to avoid her injuring herself.  

LUCY is playful, smart, loving and actually quite a confident dog when someone is with her. Her behavior is quite Basenji like, including the yodeling. She would be the perfect dog if it wasn't for her anxiety when left alone.  Calming medications during very stressful times have been used with some success, but what this girl needs is a home where someone is home all the time, or can take her with them. If you would like more information on this girl please call her owner at: 408-310-0905, or email: <>  There is a $99 adoption fee for Lucy.

Florida (New 6/3/2019)

JOBA is an 11 year old, 45 pound Basenji mix who is looking for a new home. He has been with the same family since he was 7 months old, but he is growing increasingly more anxious living with the energetic child in the home, and the child is uncomfortable with the dog. Past the active young dog stage, this guy likes to just hang out or go for walks. He doesn't want to live with kids, other dogs or cats. 

JOBA is a healthy dog who is neutered, up to date with vaccinations and preventatives. He has some arthritis that he takes joint supplements for. This guy is house/crate/leash trained and has good manners. He really is a loving companion, and this is heartbreaking for the family. They just want him to go to a nice home to live out the rest of his days around people. If you are interested in Joba, call: (387) 747-4884,or email: <>  There is a $99 adoption fee for Joba.

Oklahoma (New 5/31/2019)

MARLEY is a 10 year old, 30 pound Basenji mix girl who needs a new home ASAP due to family circumstances. She was born to a Basenji mother and has had the same owner her whole life. She is extremely friendly, currently lives with 3 young children and is fine with them, is good with the dogs at doggy daycare, but her attitude towards cats is unknown. 

MARLEY appears to be a very healthy girl, she is spayed and up to date with vaccinations. Very energetic, loves tug of war, long walks and she loves to snuggle under the covers! Can be a bit skittish at times, and is nervous during storms, but she is housetrained, crate trained, and has good manners. If you are interested in giving Marley a loving home like she's used to, please call: (813) 523-5451, or email: <>  There is a $99 adoption fee for Marley.



Young, Male
Maryland (New 5/18/2019)

MAX is a sweet 17 pound, 3 year old Basenji mix who was surrendered to the shelter because he had too much energy. He is good with adults, and other dogs but should probably have a home without little kids because he tends to be a bit of a food guarder. He'll also need to be fed separately from other dogs.

MAX is currently in a shelter, but he is pretty tidy in his kennel so he is probably housetrained. It is preferred that he goes to an experienced owner - someone who is ready for his spunk! He is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations. If you're interested in giving this guy a home contact:410-268-4388 ext 103, or email: <>

Georgia (Updated 4/2/2019)

LUCY was found wandering the streets, she was emaciated and it was obvious that she'd had multiple litters. She was in such poor condition that she was initially completely non-reactive to the 6 cats living in her new home. But now that she is recovering and feeling much better there is beginning to be a definite negative reaction to the cats. This poor girl is trying so hard to be good and not lose her loving new home, but her hunting instinct is strong and living with cats is totally stressing her out. 

LUCY is about 3 years old and weighs 40 pounds. She has been spayed, is completely up to date with vaccinations, heartworm negative and on preventative. She currently has itchy skin which has been attributed to the anxiety of living with the cats. She is a lovely girl, all she wants to do is make you happy, lay in front of the window, or take walks. Very friendly, would probably be good with kids, and loves the other dog in the house. Has good house manners, uses a doggy door, and walks well on leash. For more information about this sweet girl call: 941 284-1187, or email: There is a $99 adoption fee for Lucy.

California (Update 3/12/2019)

KIKI is a beautiful 33 pound, 10 year old California girl that sadly, due to family circumstances, will be losing the only home she has ever known. She likes people, but she doesn't want to live with kids, or any other dogs. And even though she acts catlike, she is not fond of cats either. A lover of long walks, long car rides, playing fetch, running around... but snuggling and relaxing too. 

KIKI is quite healthy, spayed, and up to date with shots. She is house trained, crate trained, and well behaved. She is obedient, and enjoys showing off her tricks like sit, spin, paw or hop. Her dream home would be a place with an active owner where she is the only child, human or animal. If you think this girl may be a good fit in your heart and home please contact:  There is a $99 adoption fee for KiKi.
