More Details

About Dingo

Dingo is a rescued Basenji mix from a high kill shelter in Oklahoma and was most likely used (and possibly abused) as a race dog given his anxieties, heritage, and punched ears. He's very sweet but also very smart, strong, and fast so he cannot he allowed to be unsupervised.

  • Weight: 25 lbs
  • Breed: Basenji & Mixed
  • Tracking Chip: Yes

    Will not go in the house, as long as he is supervised. He has severe separation anxiety and will defecate out of fear due to it as well as try his hardest to escape. He has been able to break down the door of a taped, against the wall kennel and even open doors. He needs to take his time to go to the bathroom when walking outside.

    He has had children poke and pat his face and although he is definitely not a fan he puts up with it peacefully

    Will play by running but not with toys or wrestling: very gentle and docile dog

    No idea how he is around cats yet but hope him to be fine with them since he's great with people and other dogs.

Special Requirements

Supervision, thunder jacket when getting too anxious, daily supplement to be crushed and stirred in with wet food once a day, needs to take his time to go to the bathroom when walking outside. He likes to run here and there but as he is a middle aged dog do not overdo it.

About Star

Star is neutered and dog-friendly with small, calm dogs. He gets frightened of larger and more wily ones. He gets along with other cats and is very sweet. He is NOT de-clawed, but hasn't lashed out at any of us ever either. Just be mindful of his claws when he love kneads into you while cuddling.

About Rune

Rune is a very food-motivated and happy-go-lucky pup who enjoys playing with other dogs as well as our cat. He loves running around with the neighborhood kids too. He knows a lot of commands, but typically only listens to me as he is training to be a service dog with myself as his handler, but will still eventually settle down and mind his manners when being told no by my roommate.
