All attempts to pull the little dog from the Arlington shelter in time for transport were failures due to red tape and unbending rules.

In the meantime, I was looking at the BRAT (basenji rescue and transport) website and there was a basenji mix listed (not a BRAT sponsored dog) by a gal in Austin with July as latest adoption possible. I emailed to see if Patty had gotten a good home. The gal said she had given her away to a woman who just dumped her in the Austin shelter last week. I spoke to the shelter this morning. Patty had been impounded on several occasions, has had numerous homes, is an escape artist, fence climber, destructive, and said to dislike other dogs. She is also 4 years old. Not a good profile for an adoptable dog.

Our wonderful transport guy, Doug, still wanted to help save an at risk Texas dog with us. He is on his way now to get Patty and she should be here Wednesday. We will have our work cut out for us, but feel she deserves another chance.

Don’t forget, donations are still being matched by our generous supporter, Joyce. Help Patty and help us, while  your donation will be doubled. Thank you!

    oh my yes, she is adorable. she looks like a loveable little dickens. i can see it in her eyes in the bottom pic. she thinks she can outsmart you look. i hope it goes well with the other dogs.

    Just spoke to former foster and she was not always bad with other dogs. I am sure she will fit in. All basenjis are little demons! She is half- so maybe not as bad! LOL. thanks!

    Cute face: she has a mischievous expression! As she’s been put through several transitions, hopefully she may turn out to be your grateful dog! 🙂

    I think she will be OK and fit in. Basenjis are more like cats-we don’t expect too much gratitude! That’s OK.
