Hi, my name is Yogi. I am an eight-year-old, red and white Basenji man. I've had a couple of homes that didn't quite work out because I like to be the boss and I don’t really care for other males. I'm looking for my forever home, preferably with a real pretty Basenji girl. My foster dad says I am a petite alpha male. I do like to be in charge, but I'm a very loving boy. I am what my foster dad calls a “Ladies’ Man”, but I love human attention too.

My foster dad says I am a great dog. I love to see what he is doing so I like to follow him around. I came from a home with a female Basenji. My owner was downsizing so I had to find a new home. I found myself in a home with another male and I kind of took advantage of the situation because he appeared weak. So, I found myself looking for another place to live.

I love people, either male or female, but because I can be a pest, it might not be a good idea to have a cat in the home. I am not destructive, but my foster dad says I can be nosey, and I like to be into everyone’s business. When my foster dad or mom tell me to stop, I tell them my feelings about the situation by yodeling in response. Please consider me for a home with a loving family and a girl I can call my own. 

If you can offer Yogi a home where he can settle in and spend the rest of his days getting the attention he craves and have a young Basenji female to offer him companionship, please read the data sheet below carefully, complete the BRAT adoption form (if you have not previously done so) and contact the BRAT coordinator, Linda Webb-Hilliard.

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 Yogi.

There is an adoption fee of $300.00 for Yogi. This fee is used for the extensive costs associated with vetting and otherwise caring for Yogi 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. 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.
