MAYA's Story...
Hi, my name is Maya. I am a 2-1/2 year old Basenji or Basenji mix. I was found in the street by an elementary school where kids would sometimes tease me. One of HSR fosters quickly took Maya in and began to care for her.. She was adopted pretty fast, but unfortunately the family that adopted her returned after 2 YEARS, saying they were suddenly allergic.. Something very rare and and odd since this breed rarely sheds. We think it was more that Maya needed more attention then they had time for... She is now back with her original foster family after 2 years, but we were certainly happy to have her back in the right place and are now seeking a better fit for her.

Maya has the characteristics common for most Basenji's. She is sweet and loving and loves to be around people and she is also house broken. She rarely bark (she barks a little, when necessary). She is clean and neat with no doggie smell. But She dos have a good bit of energy when outdoors and will need to be exercised to keep her as happy as she is now. She will have to at least have a nice long walk every day.. Her breed needs this. Her foster mom calls her, her personal trainer. She just knows how much I love to run and exercise with her. She likes to make her foster mom sprint so she can run fast, but she also enjoys trotting along as she jogs, or a brisk walk.

Maya loves attention and is still learning every day. It is important for any family that adopts her to understand that she loves to be taught things. She likes playing with kids and other dogs too. I am excellent when it comes to either and I even do very well at the dog park. .When people are around her sheI love to give kisses, and see tries to see if she can coax them to play with her. She does live with a foster family who works all day long so I do well in a crate if need be...At first she was anxious about them leaving, but now doing exceptionally well and she has her routine done packed. However, it would be best for me to have a family that is home more often than not..Being with her people is what makes me happiest..It is important for any family that adopts her to know about the quirks common to the Basenji breed. We want Maya to be happy and to never be left again. Where ever she is placed it is to be her forever home.

If you are looking for a wonderful companion –and a relationship where solid trust and love will be built up, then Maya is your girl.. She is extremely loyal once that happens. .Also incredibly beautiful to say the least..

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Fort Worth 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 Fort Worth 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 Fort Worth paves the way for another one to be saved.
