We pay $300.00 per month for doggy day care to keep Loki from destroying our house. Since we are gone at minimum 10 hours a day for my wife and 12 to 13 hours a day for me Loki can’t be left alone for that long, heck she can’t be left alone for 5 minutes without making the Basenji scream and scaring everybody within a few blocks. Then while doing her scream she tears up everything around her, she just can’t be left alone. She is awesome but a real pain as well.
We have been told she might calm down a bit if we got another dog to keep her company. By getting another dog we could actually end up saving money as well as provide companionship for the mutt. My worry is we will end up with two dogs that can’t handle it at home but we can return the dog if it doesn’t work out. We would hate to but if it doesn’t work what else can you do?
Initial research puts these dogs at around 45 to 50 lbs at full adult age. The only dog that doesn’t fit that is the already named Thor, he is at 80lbs and has reached full size. Also our research shows these dogs have all been tested with other dogs, people and cats and supposedly are very playful and not timid or scared like the first dog we got last year. If you adopt a scared timid dog it has likely been abused so you really need to have the time to bring the dog around and out of his/her shell. We don’t have that amount of free time. Here are the dogs as the list is today. The adoption fee is $300.00, they have all their shots, have been spayed or neutered and are ready for homes.
First up is Dakota, should we adopt him his name will become Thor. So we will have Loki and Thor, what awesome names! No name picked out for a female yet but we’re thinking about it! What do you guys think?
Dakota - Female Already named Thor! – Male
Squiggles – Female Willie – Male
Tinker – Female Brynn – Female
Smiles – Female Keebo – Male
