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.

About Adopt-a-Pet/ Petrescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Saving Discarded Pets Since1998
as well as puppy mill discards, dogs from high kill shelters, and owner surrenders as space allows.
Please note we are located in Grey-Bruce County,
in the area of Lucknow, Ontario
which is south east of Kincardine ,Ontario but have our dogs placed in foster homes
from London area & north to Kitchener area- Cambridge- Woodstock and Guelph areas .

We are a group of committed volunteers led by the tireless efforts of Kathi. Together we transport, foster, contribute, volunteer, donate, support, encourage and generally all around enjoy the fruits of Kathi's labours.

Adopt-a-Pet Pet Rescue is a non profit, private rescue without an office, a shelter building, or paid staff. We are not subsidized or funded by anyone. People often mistake us as being affiliated with the SPCA and other groups. However, we raise all funds ourselves to pay for the care of the animals.

We pick up unclaimed, homeless and discarded animals from pounds and shelters. Some pounds allow the animal extra time to find a home, but if they are unsuccessful, then they call us to take the animal so it is not euthanized. When we have available space we take in owner surrenders and pick up puppy mill dogs who have either outworn their usefulness or who have passed their puppy-cuteness-easy-to-sell date. We We cover hundreds of kilometers from Kincardine to London to Cambridge to Southampton, Ontario Canada. We also try to save the lives of animals who aren't within our area whenever we can - we don't close doors based on geography.

Pre-adoption, we provide above average veterinary care. We spay or neuter, micro-chip, vaccinate, deworm and treat for parasites. If the animal is too young to be fixed at time of adoption we offer a spay or neuter rebate. We provide all necessary emergency care and initial grooming. We buy their food, dog collars and any other necessities.

Each of us have jobs, families and the typical resonsibilities of busy lives. We give of our time, energy and enthusiasm to rescue animals for the same reason Kathi does - anything less is unacceptable to us. When you call or email Adopt-a-Pet Pet Rescue, please be patient with us - we are juggling alot ... and we're glad to do it for the animals.

We are always in need of and welcome help with accepting new fosters- assistance with/ at pet events- great for students needing volunteer hours, putting out fliers, assistance with pet supervision at pet events, Assistance with rescue booth set-up- take down etc...
