My fiancee, Phyllis, has a basenji named Tippy. Tippy was purchased at a Connecticut Pound; BRAT worked out the rescue. Tippy was 6 years old at the time of the rescue and today she is 19 years old (January 9, 2010).
Here are a few pictures. Mind you, at 19 yrs old Tippy is playing with my Pembroke Corgi who just turned 2 yrs old. He has been trained to back off to let her rest during play periods.
Tippy has tons of energy for 19, and although a rescue Basenji, she is as friendly and loving as if she had never had a tough life prior to being rescued by Phyllis 13 years ago!
She and my Corgi get along like best friends and play at least once or twice a day. She is in top form and we see no end in sight!
Love to you and your staff!!!
