Success Story: Mauri
Two years ago my husband and I decided to add to our family with another basenji. We already had a wonderful 2 year old boy (red and white), but wanted him to have a buddy. We contacted BRAT and went through the home visit and everything else necessary to get connected with the right basenji. A puppy named Mauri (tri colored) was recently rescued from a puppy mill, along with her mom and siblings. She was brought to our house for a visit and never left.
She and our boy, Pharaoh, are inseparable and absolutely are never apart. They sleep together, sit next to each other outside and even walk side by side when on leash. I cant imagine life without either of them. Nor do I remember ever just having one dog. BRAT was exceptional at matching the right dog with my family and we are just so happy that BRAT rescued Mauri from such an awful situation. We support BRAT when we can, but thank everyone daily for bringing our little basenji pack together!
