Let's talk about Basenjis!
Can a male Basenji live with another male dog?

@donc - I will disagree with your statement that males are more mellow.... the only thing that I have seen with males is that after a horrible fight, you can usually get them back together (till the next fight)... Bitches (are just that) after a fight chances of getting them back together is slim to none...

Introduce yourself and your Basenjis.
Good morning.

He's about 2 years old.He's 14 inches high at the shoulder and 16 inches long. Hind legs are about 17 in. Here's about 16 lbs. His one front elbow seems to bow out a little. At this moment, no vets are taking new pets, so having to wait for his first check up. Just wondering what this could be from and what we can do to help him in the mean time. During play, a zoomy moment, he wimpered at bit when he bent that leg wrong. He's able to run incredibly well and fast and plays like crazy. So it's not a medical emergency. His hind legs stand about an inch higher than his front legs

How to introduce a 2 year old to a dog park

Would like to foster a Basenji

Please go to and join as a member. It will show you are serious about helping. BRAT always needs good foster homes. A home visit will be required (not sure if that is possible at this time considering this COVID-19 crisis). It is especially helpful if you have basenji experience. Not always, but very often, a basenji coming into rescue has special needs (i.e., behavioral, medical, etc.). It is good to ask yourself if you and your family are willing to deal with that. Fostering is hard but it can also be a wonderful and rewarding thing to do.

Why do they do that?
Couple issues with my Buxton ...

@buxton-s-dad - Have to say, wire crates are better.... raised Basenjis with wire crates (fold down type) for 30+ years including bitches whelping in them.... remember in plastic crates they really can't see what is going on around them... and he should be fed in that crate. And sorry I don't agree with peeing for attention...

Looking for a Basenji UK/London/Kent

I'm looking to become an owner of a Basenji, and I'm based in South East London, close to Kent. Don't mind travelling a little bit, but would need to be in England for ease of transport.

I know that breeding usually takes place at a particular time of the year, so would like to get in touch with any breeders for the next season and be put on waiting list.

Alternatively, happy to adopt / rescue and if anyone knows of any dogs needing a forever home, pls do let me know.

Would be living with 2 adults, but we also have visits from 2 children occasionally, so would need to be accustomed / advice on getting a pup accustomed with seeing young children (currently under 10)

Dog tracking collar

Here are some good things recommended: [URL removed]
After my old man lost one time, I tried many types of GPS to track him. After trying a lot, I found that PetFon and Whistle are the most suitable for ordinary families with pets. Garmin is good, but too expensive. Their mobile applications and controllers are very easy to set up, and not easy to drop, I can always see where my dog ​​is through the application.
