THIS DOG IS PENDING. Pending means this dog has tentatively found a home but the adoption has not yet been finalized. Though marked pending, you can still apply.

Meet Texas!  

Texas is a red and white, purebred male. He was named Texas because the white patch on the back of his neck resembles the state. Texas started off as a show dog, but was then purchased as a family pet.

Texas's foster says, "This B boy is a great dog!" He has a calm demeanor, is fine around children who respect his space, and all adults he has met. This guy does not run for an open door, is food motivated and just wants to be around people. He doesn't mind other canine companions as long as they aren't high energy and respect his space. He seeks love and affection once he knows he can trust you. He enjoys walks, sunshine, and food! At night Texas sleeps on the couch, and when his people are out he is in a crate. 

Texas is a healthy senior boy who needs a calm, loving home to live the remainder of his life. If you can provide Texas with his basic needs, love and affection, the respect he deserves and provide a spot in the sun, he will be happy to spend the remainder of his life with you.

If you think you could provide Texas 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 Texas.

There is an adoption fee of $250.00 for Texas. This fee is used for the extensive costs associated with vetting and otherwise caring for Texas 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.
