Basenji Purebreds

Sheba is a petite, rather reserved, senior lady, looking for a home where she can live out her days in peace and harmony. If you prefer a Basenji, but are looking for one that is a calm and laid back girl, Sheba is looking for you. She is described by her foster as being elegant and dainty. Read more about her.

If you're serious about adopting a Basenji—or two—from BRAT, fill out our adoption form. After you've submitted the form, explore the listings below and apply for all dogs that interest you—you'll find the coordinator's name in each listing and you will be able to e-mail them.

Our goal is to make the perfect match between your home and the Basenji. This can be challenging, so please be patient.

You might also consider a Basenji mix.

We encourage you to fill out an application to adopt, even if there are currently no dogs listed in your state. We may have dogs that will be available soon, but are in various stages of our intake process. Sometimes when we have a dog that needs emergency placement, we check our applicant database to find a pre-approved home that matches the dog's needs.

BRAT dogs are spayed and neutered ($150-$400, depending on location), vaccinated as needed, tested for heartworm and strip-tested for Fanconi. Other tests and dental cleanings may be performed if needed. The dogs are also temperament evaluated.

Please note that BRAT charges an adoption fee to cover all expenses incurred in our rescue program. The adoption fee will vary depending on the age and health of the dog. The adoption fee is listed within the dog's posting.

We have more Basenjis not listed on this web page. Even if you don't see a dog you want here, we encourage you to fill out our Adoption Form.
