Let's talk about Basenjis!
Earl, my basenji. What is he mixed with?

I don't see much basenji in him (the ears don't look right somehow) - chihuahua or dachshund maybe and yeah some kind of terrier. Nice though.

Or you could do something unheard of these days and just reward with praise and enthusiasm! Works quite well with puppies until they start to feel "entitled".

Need help with our basenji mix!!

Some things cannot be fixed. I urge you to get a qualified behaviorist (veterinary) to evaluate him. If he is truly unstable, rehoming him is not fair to him or the new home.

Posesivo Basenji attacking Rott pup she grew up with

@nikikob - Wish you luck, but I fear to say that things are going to go badly. When bitches fight, 99.9% of the time you will never get them back together and while it might work for a while, when the "mood" hits... the fights become worse and worse.

Post here tips on raising young Basenji.

Crate training Chupy

Update: so after the night I said my husband slept next to his open crate things have changed! All it took was that one night (albeit with an open crate) for Chupy to take to his crate. We are so happy for him... and us! Now he goes to his crate on his own for naps and just to hang out. We are so proud of our little boy. The next night he slept in his crate (in our room) with his door open, and we slept in our bed. He still wakes up every 1-2 hours and walks out of crate, but if we do not pay him immediate attention he goes right back in his crate and goes back to sleep. We take him outside every 2-3 hours to potty. We're going to try to close his crate door tonight

Breeding my 2 year old Basenji

Yes you can be unlucky with anything, but doing everything you can to ensure a healthy dog should be the top priority.

My girl has had blood work every year just as routine after my firsts problems. She has no symptoms, we just caught it on the yearly two years ago she slightly elevated, last year she was more elevated.

We first started just Nutramax denamarin, three months later it made no difference to her readings.

We switched her to Dr Dobs detox diet and Nutramax denamarin, went back after three months and her levels went up!

So now we have her on regular food, denamarin in the morning, milk thistle in the afternoon and twice daily 1000mg of fish oil.

Due to go back in February and see if that works. If not we will probably have to ultrasound. All her other blood work is normal so that is a good thing.

fly high my sweet boy


So sorry for your loss, I lost my first buddy four years ago in March and I still miss him. I got a new buddy a month after he died despite reservations over whether it was too soon\the right thing to do. So glad I did, just as my first wriggled his basenji way into our hearts, my new buddy has done the same. I still miss my first and always will, but another basenji knows just how to help you heal, the really are a special breed.
