Show Off Your Dog
Love the photos.
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.
Basenji Health Issues & Questions
Here is the place to discuss training your Basenji (housebreaking, lure coursing, agility…).
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.
@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 !)
Basenji Puppy Pen
Post here tips on raising young Basenji.
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..
"The PennHIP method can be reliably performed on a dog as young as 16 weeks old."
@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.
Basenji Meetups & Events
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.
