As a Basenji mix, Bill and Ben do not bark but makes sounds that include yodels, whines, and screams which is actually quite comical. This mix of podenco and Basenji has produced a very clever and endearing dog, a good companion for the person or family who can stay one step ahead of him. They are classified as hounds which means they are intelligent and independent, but also very affectionate and alert but a ´kitty free´home is essential. We would love for them to go to an experienced home who can offer training with kindness and consistency, using positive reinforcements and praise.

Bill and Ben just love to go out for walks and would thrive on the new challenges and opportunities that a family could give them. Refuge life is hard for Ben and his brother Bill as there just isn´t enough time to give them they attention they need. But…they take it in their stride and wait patiently for their opportunity to come. It seems sometimes that they have both resigned themselves to the fact that they will spend the rest of their life in the refuge as they are often seen just sitting together on top of their wooden kennel staring into space.

If you feel you would like to give Bill, Ben or both of these superb dogs a chance to shine and thrive, please contact us, they have seen lots of their other doggy friends leave the refuge to start their new lives and they would be soo happy to finally find a home of their very own Image result for sunshine emoji
