Why was he in need? Ben is a great boy that was found as a stray in November - we have just added him to the site as on intake from the pound he started vomitting as soon as he left the clinic

Where is he now ??He is fostered in Goderich with dogs and does great

*ALL ABOUT BEN **
He has had neuter, vaccines, deworm, fecal, reworm, bloodwork

We have found out that he can vomit when he is nervous - but thankfully this seems to be disipating UNLESS he drinks too much water or is too excited when you come home - if you do not make a big deal of it - he does well
He is an amazing dog
He is used to dogs of all sizes
Ben would do best in a home that will include him in their nightly ritual and where they understand the breed
He has been nervous before in high traffic areas so we would prefer that he goes to a place where he will not have to be stressed by that

History :
Ben is believed to be a Basenji He was found in November He appears to be a young adult Ben is great with other dogs of all sizes When we took Ben out of the vet clinic, after his neuter, vaccines, deworm, and hernia reapir, he puked in the vehicle He did this randomly at foster home as well, and it was more notable after he drank too much water too fast, and was excited when foster came home He went back to the vets and got meds for his umbilical hernia repair area and was examined again about puking - thankfully the puking decreased once he adjusted to the foster home While trying to find some answers it was discovered that the breed is known to have a nervous stomach and to puke on an empty stomach Unfortunately when Ben went out to what we hoped was his permanent home he did not transition well and began puking after he left the foster home, he puked far too much and became dehydrated - their vet also noted thru a fecal that he had parasitic eggs - so he was rehydrated and has been dewormed yet again He came back to his foster and fit back in very well, no puking even, but then the foster started long shifts at work - so he is now fostered in Goderich with other dogs - thankfully he transitioned very well - and we feel it is now time to begin looking for his perfect match

A basenji experienced home is a must - he is an amazing dog, very sweet and we do not want him to be moved around unnecessarily - we want him to go to a home that acknowledges and accepts the info we have learned and shared about him
An application is required in order to meet Ben

*** HOW IT WORKS - ADOPTION INFORMATION ****
Please read ** ALL** the information provided below on the process to
save time and facilitate the process in a smooth manner.

The adoption fee does NOT cover the cost of vetting or supplies for these animals - If you cannot afford the adoption fee
(that is a fraction of actual REDUCED VETTING expenses incurred) then you should reconsider adopting.
These animals deserve forever homes, good food, regular vet care, and emergency care as needed.
Pets should never be euthanized by their owners simply based on financial consideration when something goes wrong.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BEN- adoption pending, a Lucknow Basenji dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basenji for sale in Lucknow, or seeking a Basenji dog from a breeder in Lucknow.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lucknow already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lucknow breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Basenji breeders who help with Basenji rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lucknow paves the way for another one to be saved.
