Florence's Story...

orence is about 2 years old. She looks eay bigger than she is in person- she is about 35 pounds.
She had to have one of her back legs amputated after she was hit by a car.
Here is a great description by her foster mom..
"She’s a smart, sweet and funny doggie.
She loves our dog Blue who is a 75 lb mix. They play very enthusiastically but are gentle as well.
We don’t see a ton of other dogs as we walk on my street which is small and hillside area, but I’d assume she does well with other dogs.
She is very tidy and has not even once soiled or urinated inside the house. One night we apparently forgot to take her out to potty before bed, and she woke us up to go outside.
She is a gentle eater, and takes treats from your hand without chomping. However, she is a FAST eater, and very excited at every meal. We feed her in a bowl with speed bumps to try to slow her down a bit.
She does not have food aggression, and I can give treats to both dogs at the same time, they will each go to their corners.
She does really well on three legs, and can even maneuver the doggie doors (she taught herself before we even taught her how to use them). I walk her on our hillside which is fairly steep, about .75 miles a day so far. On the uphill, sometimes she will sit for a moment (like 5 seconds) to rest her back leg. Over the past weeks she has been at our house, she’s made huge improvements. (I think she’s about 4 weeks out of amputation surgery at this point).
She is extremely receptive to training with treats, and as I said is quite smart.
Flo is a nurturing dog. She will walk around the house and make sure everyone is okay. She will come to you, let you greet her and pet her, then go to the next person, etc. Once she knows that all is well she will lay at your feet and nap. She’d be happy to have time on the sofa, but we have discouraged it at our house. "

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Florence, a San Diego Basenji/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basenji/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in San Diego, or seeking a Basenji/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in San Diego.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Diego 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 San Diego 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Basenji/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Diego paves the way for another one to be saved.
