Dog of Pharoahs Needs New Home

A basenji African hunting dog in Mission Viejo is looking to be adopted.

There's a special, social, friendly pup in need of a home in Mission Viejo.

Bubba is a mixed basenji, a dog bred in middle Africa. Statues of basenji can be seen at the feet of the pharoahs of ancient Egypt.

And this one is great with people of all ages. He's looking for a home and is currently vacationing at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center, which also serves Aliso Viejo and Laguna Niguel.

Here's more from Mission Viejo spokeswoman Kelly Tokarski:

Bubba is a bubbly, fun and handsome 2-year-old Basenji mix who's been waiting far too long for his forever family. Social, friendly and great with people of all ages, Bubba has made many canine friends while staying at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center.

He's extremely active and loves running and chasing his toys. Even if there is no one readily available to throw his toys for him, Bubba entertains himself by throwing his toys up in the air. Once he has exhausted some of his energy, Bubba is extremely affectionate and a cute cuddlebug. He will make a wonderful companion for any family lucky enough to adopt him!

To see Bubba, drop by the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center at 28095 Hillcrest. For more information, call 949-470-3045.

He is a beauty. I'll share him on FB and see if anyone will take him.
