I had two male basenjis who got along great until they turned on each other viciously in early sep and we could never bring them back together. We tried to bring them back together many times but never could. Hired a trainer. Etc if they got access to each other they would start to fight viciously and draw blood and it would be hard to separate them without getting hurt yourself. I’ll never have two males again; it was an awful experience.
Show Off Your Dog
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
Here is the place to discuss training your Basenji (housebreaking, lure coursing, agility…).
Please go to Basenjirescue.org 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.
@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...
Basenjis For Sale or Wanted
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)

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.
