Mary is a shy girl but very friendly. She behaves well and likes to be with people and other dogs. Even though her past has not always been happy, she holds no grudge against anyone around her. She will fill any home with sunshine.

Mary is part of our international rescue efforts and will be flown to the Bay Area (SFO) ONLY if a foster or permanent home can be found for her beforehand.

If you are interested in providing a foster home for her until a permanent home can be found, please email your completed Foster Form to help us ensure you are matched with the right foster dog. Foster homes will have first priority to adopt their foster dog. If you would like to foster with the intent of adopting the dog if it works out, please complete an Adoption Application instead of the Foster Form.

Interested adopters: We ask interested adopters to please tell us a little about yourself by completing an Adoption Application. There is a $200 adoption fee which goes to help cover a portion of each dog's medical and transport expenses. A homecheck will also be required because we do want to be sure that each dog goes to an environment suited to them.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mary, a Concord Basenji/Whippet dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basenji/Whippet for sale in Concord, or seeking a Basenji/Whippet dog from a breeder in Concord.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Concord 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 Concord 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/Whippet breeders who help with Basenji/Whippet rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Concord paves the way for another one to be saved.
