Introduce yourself and your Basenjis.
Hi all, my name is janet.

Dear Janet,
Hello from Florida.
ALL your doggiefriends are adorable! So glad to hear you rescued them. Your Soso has a very basenji looking head. Sounds like she may have a fair amount of basenji behavior too. I'm glad to hear things are easier after the first year (she has trained you well...).
The most important thing is that she is yours and your are hers. Thanks for rescuing and posting the pix.

@njdeb You purchase cans of pure pumpkin at the supermarket. If you live in the USA, since it is so close to Thanksgiving, you can purchase a case of canned pumpkin at Costco for a good discount.

Sacramento, CA BRAT

@tanza said in Sacramento, CA BRAT:

You can always also contact breeders that might be wanting to place could be looking to place an x-show dog that they are not using for breeding or possible an adult they have gotten back for whatever reason. You might need to travel a bit, but check out breeders in OR/WA for sure. I know for a fact that FoPaws in WA (Therese Leimback) have two middle aged to place from an owner return. Don't know what the current situation is, there is a male and a female. You can find her on facebook. Highly recommend either of these two

Great recommendation. Breeders who take dogs back are also virtually guaranteed to give you a good description of the dog's personality and their pluses and minuses.

Why do they do that?
She DID it!

Hey everyone... just wanted to add that our next trip to the dog park: no problem! She played, was well behaved, and didn't give me any problems when it was time to go. whew!

segway from "mysterious health problems"

@redial Yes - but it is messy ! The pate works a treat - he regards every medication as a treat (Hoover gets a small piece at the same time) and I never have any problem. In fact as they are both loathe to venture out last thing at night these wintry days - leaving the comfort and warmth of leather armchairs - I have taken to rattling the packet !

It gets them out in seconds ! (Subterfuge though - they don't get anything and I hope it will be Spring again before they realise they have been conned !)

New puppy owner Questions


The vet can manipulate to see if something severe is wrong, but hips xrays need to wait til 6 mos (OFA) or (I think.. too tired to look) 4 mos.. oh heck I have to look..

Hounds of Timar

@dagodingo I am so sorry for your loss. High Liver Enzymes is an indication of some form of Liver Disease. I am sure that the Breeder will be in touch. I have high Liver Enzymes myself so I drink a lot of water with Lemon Juice added.

The longer we have them the worse it is. Losing a B is like losing a child. That is how I felt when mine passed several years ago. I took her everywhere with me except to the Grocery store. The spot on the Bed where she slept still feels strange without her.

Please know that you took great care of Suzy and she knew she was loved. That should take the edge off but it is so very hard.

Use this forum for upcoming Basenji meetups, events, bashes, day at the park.
Meet up Central Ohio??!

We rescued our little girl from CBR. However, we were cautioned - NOT just because she is a rescue but due to the breed not to ever take her to a dog park. These are the reasons we were given: too many other communicable diseases, possible aggressive other dogs and many other safety / hazard risks. She did recommend socializing her with other Basenji or even other dogs in a 'not'so-public' setting, just not dog parks. Therefore, we have never taken her to one but I am certain it would be up to your discretion.
