Kobe is a very sweet boy looking for a permanent home where he can feel secure and confident. He loves to run so he should have a large yard with a fence he can't climb! He likes to cuddle right on top of you, and will jump right in your lap! Kobe has been taking nosework classes and this has helped immensely during walks. He ignores or tries to sniff people instead of becoming defensive. Kobe will do best as an only dog or with a laid back female canine.

If you think you can give Kobe a secure home, lots of love, and work on building his confidence please read the data sheet below carefully, complete the BRAT adoption form (if you have not previously done so) and contact the BRAT coordinator, Kate Moore.

The coordinator's link will take you to a form that will ask you your name, email address, the city and state you live in, why this dog is perfect for your family, a typical day in your household, and, if applicable, how you plan to transport Kobe.

There is an adoption fee of $300.00 for Kobe. This fee is used for the extensive costs associated with vetting and otherwise caring for Kobe and future Basenjis in rescue. BRAT adopters receive a dog that has been spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, treated for fleas and internal worms if necessary, DNA tested for Fanconi syndrome (dogs under 10), and heartworm tested. Our dogs get recommended dental work. Seniors over 10 get a senior panel. When indicated, we test our dogs for thyroid deficiencies. They are also temperament evaluated. In addition, BRAT provides free lifetime post-adoption counseling to help deal with behavioral or health issues. Finally, we provide a free lifetime identification tag connected to our "lost dog" toll free number.
