10/15/08Zareefa is from a puppy mill. When she arrived you could count her ribs, see her back bone, and her hip bones were sticking out. She has gained weight and her fur has become softer than it was. She is missing a toe nail on one of her front legs. She has been vaccinated, spayed, and tested negative for heartworms. She is good with other dogs but is a Basenji and does not back down from a challenge. She's fine with cats and will walk on a leash(still needs more work but is better). She is not housetrained and will need an understanding home. She has a habit of running in circles...much like a horse when being lunged...and she does this quite often. It is usually from being kept in a cage too small that she wasn't happy in. She's gotten better about the circles but I don't think they will ever completely go away.
