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.

The dogs on this page are usually not BRAT dogs. BRAT has not usually evaluated the dogs on this page, and expresses no opinion as to the accuracy of the information contained in their descriptions.

Young, Female
Mississippi (New 6/19/2022)

OLIVE is a 2 year old, 35 pound Basenji mix who is needing a new home with someone who has more time to spend with her. This girl is extremely playful and affectionate, is good with people, loves kids, great with other dogs, is curious about cats and will chase but has never hurt one. She needs room to run and play, and would love to have have a home with a yard, and maybe kids and a dog friend! 

OLIVE has been very well cared for; is spayed, up to date with vaccinations, and has been kept on heartworm preventative. Why wouldn't you want this girl; housetrained, crate trained, is only destructive in that Basenji sort of way, is a bit headstrong - typical - but enjoys working for things. She's a gem. For more information call: (228) 493-2531, or email:  There is a $125 adoption fee. 


Layla Layne

Young, Female
New Jersey (New 6/12/2022)

LAYLA LAYNE is a 2 year old, 30 pound, possible Basenji mix who is looking for a new home. Her current family is unable to keep her any longer, and although they will be sad to see her go, they realize she needs a home where more time can be spent with her. A fenced yard would be a bonus for this girl as she would love the opportunity to run free. She is initially uncomfortable with strangers but is good with most adults and children, is fine with other dogs, but doesn't know much about cats.  

LAYLA LANE appears to be a healthy girl; she has her vaccinations including rabies but is not spayed. A home with experienced dog owners is what she needs as some training is going to be required for this one.  Although she is crate trained, she needs more work on her housetraining skills. It is important that her confidence level is improved as she seems uncertain in many situations. Consider being this dogs' hero, email:  There is no adoption fee, but any adoption is contingent on her being spayed. 



Adult, Female
Tennessee (New 5/30/2022)

LUNA is the Basenji mix for you if you like blue eyes! This beauty is 4 years old, about 45 pounds, and is needing a new home as her owner is moving overseas. Sweet, super smart, and a bit arrogant; she is good with adults but not crazy about all kids - although she loves her  "own" kids - she can be picky about her canine friends but is okay with cats and actually tries to play with them.  

LUNA is a healthy girl, she is spayed, up to date with vaccinations, and recently tested negative for heartworms. She is house, crate, and leash trained; she is a pretty chill dog who barks and yodels.  Obedience trained, very well-mannered, is non destructive, comes when called, but will wander away if left unattended. Interested? Call: (719) 551-6949, or email:  There is a $125 adoption fee.



Adult, Female
Florida (New 5/21/2022)

TESS is a sweet, quiet 3 year old, 12 pound Basenji mix who was found abandoned on a dirt road. She is initially a bit skittish until she trusts you, but then will want all your love and attention and will show her mischievous side! Energetic and lightning quick or very chill, she'd love a fenced yard. Friendly with most people, hasn't been officially tested with kids but seems fine with the ones she's seen, is good with other dogs, but is unknown with cats.   

TESS has been spayed, is up to date with vaccinations; tested heartworm positive but it is being treated and she is now on preventative. This little girl is crate trained, still working on house training, needs a bit more leash experience, and knows some basic commands. Food motivated, and enjoys positive training, she should be a breeze to turn into a wonderful companion! For more information call: (239) 220-7763, or email: There is an adoption fee, and you will need an adoption application:



Senior, Female
Texas (New 4/9/2022)

ZUNA is a 38 pound, 10 year old Basenji mix who is needing a new home due to the increasing animosity between herself and another canine in the household. This girl adores being with people - even strangers - she is not dog friendly, but absolutely loves cats and kids. She is goofy, and playful, not overly energetic but spunky; loves to go on walks and explore, and her favorite thing in the world is squeaky toys!  

ZUNA is a healthy senior, spayed, vaccinated, and heartworm negative. She does have a slight heart murmur that her vet is monitoring; it does not hinder her at all. For the last couple years her family has had to strictly separate the dogs from each other so she would appreciate having the run of the house again. House and leash trained, she's used to eating in a crate so she is familiar with one. If you would like more information about this sweetheart please call: (432) 967-5517, or email:  There is a $125 adoption fee.



Young, Female
Texas (New 4/1/2022)

EVIE is a 2 year old, 37 pound suspected Basenji mix who is currently in a shelter where a former BRAT volunteer saw her and thought her to be quite Basenji-like. And she is a very beautiful girl at that! Being a shelter dog not everything is known about her past, but so far she's been great about meeting new people and is quite affectionate, but she is a bit selective about choosing her canine friends, and cats are an unknown.  

EVIE is healthy, she is spayed, has been given her vaccinations, and is on heartworm preventative. A home that can provide her with enough exercise to meet her high energy levels is necessary; plenty of walks for one thing and she is a champion on leash! Fun, and highly intelligent, she likes to work for treats, but she has the typical "Basenji stubbornness" - that might keep you entertained! For more information call: 210-655-1481, and ask about dog #A4609958




Young, Female
Texas (New 11/25/2021)

BASSY is an approximately 1 year old, 28 pounder who needs a home after simply being dropped off on someone's rural property. This girl is about as Basenji as you can get without actually being a purebred. High energy, snarky, smart, extremely curious about everything, and troublesome if she gets bored. She is good with her people, likes kids, wary of strangers, doesn't really like other dogs, but seems fine with cats.  

BASSY has recently been spayed, completely vaccinated including rabies, HW tested negative and is on prevention. This girl is housetrained, and prefers to lie on top of the crate rather than in it. All her other training is a work-in-progress but she is very well started, already responds to several commands, and she's super food motivated. She is a real catch! For more information call: (214) 385-9580, or There is a $125 adoption fee.
