Yes we figured we will wait until he is at least two before we make any decisions on neutering him.
I can understand why you might want to neuter a female but a male? Agree you need to wait. Most of the reasons advanced to neuter come from groups with an agenda but without solid science. Generally speaking the health risks of neutering outweigh any benefits and there is no effect on behavior. In my experience, having an intact male Basenji never presented any issues at all. Unless you just let your dog roam free I can't think of a single good reason to do it.
Some judges are might not be happy about it but missing a toenail is not at all something a dog should be not placed for. If it comes down to “I like both dogs and have to pick” it could be a deciding factor. No dog is perfect!
I'd just tell Exhibitor A to go ask Exhibitor B if they really wanted to know if ExB was going to the next show. That way Ex A can lie (or not) to Ex B and you're not in the middle of it. They can work out their own dynamics.
LOL! That is a good one! It sounds like a genetics chart! You are very right, if they want to lie/hide info to each other, that is up to them, but I'll keep myself out.
