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. Placement will be a private adoption between the dog's current owner or shelter and the adopter. Please be sure to investigate thoroughly all aspects of a possible placement, including the suitability of the dog for your personal situation. By proceeding, you hereby release BRAT from any liability in connection with a particular dog. BRAT is posting this information to assist owners and shelters in their placement efforts.

Puppy, Male
Illinois (New 10/22/2020)

BINGO was found wandering the streets in AR, and he eventually ended up in an IL rescue. He is a 32 pound 6-9 month old pup who won't get much bigger but he still has a lot of puppy left in him. This guy is an active playful boy. He is good with adults, absolutely loves kids, enjoys the 5 dogs he's being fostered with, but has not been cat tested.  

BINGO will be neutered, up to date with vaccines, dewormer, and heartworm protection. He is a real character with a big personality in a smaller package who loves to use his talking voice to tell you about his day! He is ready to move in with you but will need continued work with his housetraining and manners due to his age and prior life, but he aims to please. For more information call: (312) 379-9414, or email:  There is a $200 adoption fee.



Puppy, Female
Texas (New 9/28/2020)

MORRI is a 10 month old, 30 pound sweetheart of a mix who was recently adopted from the shelter but has proven to be much more of a handful than her adopters had bargained for. How can a little cutie like her be such a handful? She needs a new home with someone who is able to provide her with the exercise she should have. Enough exercise will help settle her down and proper training will enable her to learn the behaviors that make a good dog.  

MORRI has all her shots, is spayed, housetrained and crate trained, likes everyone but is not great with other dogs and definitely not cats. An owner who is experienced with Basenjis might be best for her. She will need exercise, activity, training and the chance to use her brain and she would be a happy and enjoyable pet in the right environment. For more information call: (916) 705-9369, or email:  There is a $99 adoption fee.



Adult, Male
West Virginia (New 9/2/2020)

BENJI is a 7 year old, 20 pound mix who has been waiting for a new home for awhile. He is a good dog, but like many Basenjis, he tends to be a bit aloof and does not come across as super loving or affectionate with the those who  come to see him. Most people lose interest. He needs a home with no children, he is being fostered with other dogs, but is selective as to which ones he likes, and he'll chase a cat in a heartbeat.  

BENJI has been neutered, is up to date with vaccinations and preventatives, and he is housetrained. An active dog and still very young at heart he is happiest running around the yard with his ball in his mouth! This guy will probably make you earn his love, but that's okay, it'll be worth it. For more information call: (304) 856-2696, or email:  There is an adoption fee.



Adult, Male
Florida (New 8/10/2020)

JAY is an approximately 6 year old, 16 pound mix that was wandering around a Miami, FL neighborhood. He appeared to be lost, scared, and was very hungry - he may have been living on the streets for quite some time. His finders took him in for compassionate reasons but can no longer keep him as they are moving into a situation which is unsuitable for him. This little guy is wary of strangers but is quite affectionate with his people. He has lived with dogs, however is a bit of a resource guarder. Cats and kids are an unknown.  

JAY is not yet housetrained as he lives outdoors at his finders' home. He has come a long way, and still has a ways to go. He was aggressive and territorial at first but has mellowed a great deal. He  is sweet, sensitive, affectionate, intelligent and loyal. He had been vetted, is up to date with vaccinations and HW preventatives but is not neutered. Unfortunately he needs some place safe to go ASAP, otherwise he will have to go to a shelter where he will probably be deemed unadoptable and ultimately be euthanized. If you would consider giving this little dog a chance, please contact his owners at: 786 301-3533, or email:  There is no adoption fee but Jay must be neutered.



Adult, Male
Arizona (Updated 7/13/2020)

CANELO is a sweet 5 year old, 12 pound Basenji mix who is looking for a patient, loving home after living most of his life ignored in the backyard. He is warming up to gentle affection from those he trusts, but is understandably timid and standoffish with new people. His ideal home would have adults only, no other pets, and a big yard. No apartments for this guy. 

CANELO is neutered and vaccinated; he is partially housetrained but will still need some help. This guy loves to play, especially with toys and would love an active home with plenty of them! He has quite the personality and will make a wonderful pup for the right family. If you can offer him lots of love, patience, some training and have the perfect home, please call: 602-944-2440, or email:  There is a $220 adoption fee.
