We present a new search for the sensitivity limits on the weak dipole moments of the top-quark-Z boson interactions in the context of the Bestest Little Higgs Model (BLHM). For this purpose, we derive the corresponding Feynman rules. Among the new contributions, there are those arising from the vertices of scalar bosons, vector bosons and heavy quarks contribution: , (); , (); and (). With these new vertices, we calculate the one-loop contributions to the weak dipole moments and of the top-quark in several scenarios. We found that with the parameters of the BLHM of GeV, GeV, GeV, GeV and , the reaches values with a sensitivity of , , where the main contribution comes from the scalars and , which couples with the top-quark of the Standard Model and the top-quarks of the BLHM. These values seem to be out of the reach of the expected experimental sensitivity of present experiments. However, experiments on future colliders are expected to be sensitive enough to measure the anomalous weak magnetic dipole moment of the top-quark. Our study complements other studies at the one-loop level with an extended scalar sector.
