@tanza yes my mistake it was tested with OKC I got papers to prove it.. she was born with the disease
Are you referring to OFA? If so then I would wonder if the pup's sire/dam were not the real sire/dam of the pup you got? Only if they are Afflicted with the Fanconi gene (the pup) would they develop Fanconi? Did the paperwork from OFA say "clear"?
One breeder from San Diego (Rancho Penasquitos) retired from their day jobs and moved to Texas; Bob & Terry Reed of Illusion Basenjis. Another San Diego breeder (Spring Valley) passed away almost 2 years ago; Doug Joy of Basenjis of Dune. Not all reputable breeders are visible on the BCOA website. Some don't want their kennels named because they do not breed very often. You should contact the breeder liaison via email for more breeders in California and other nearby states.
The local breed club for southern California is The South Coast Basenji Fanciers. They can help you find a local breeder. The quickest way to get in touch with them if through their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SoCalBasenjiFanciers
And as one of the posts advises:
"Stay patient. A lot of inexperienced people are buying puppies they are ill prepared for, from greeders who do not take their basenjis back.
I suspect in the next 6-8 months we might see/learn of an influx of basenjis needing homes."
I assume you mean for next winter's litters ? Nothing available at all right now - all this winter's crop will have been promised long since and be leaving the nest soon if they aren't already resettled.
However, if you email me (see signature block - email addresses are on the websites) I will send you a list of Breed Club secretaries.
Best you can hope for now is to get onto a list for this winter but all the breeders have had full lists now for some time. You may find you have to wait for next winter. Demand this year is through the roof - we are weeding things out as much as possible.
Email me privately - addresses are on the websites listed in my signature block.
@eeeefarm We have had more than our fair share of summer litters but that is extremely rare. And Ok might be true in USA but across Europe I doubt Damon would find a youngster such as you suggest. 'Finished' show dogs are very seldom passed on too.
I have put him in touch with a couple of the best people to help him get onto a waiting list
Pedigrees can be verified on the Zande pedigree database
And in a kind of negative way, if the parents are NOT listed on my web pedigree database, it is entirely possible that the breeder is a puppy-farmer and therefore well nigh impossible for me to obtain data from. I would be suspicious.
There are a few who health test breeding stock - these I get from OFA. But often only one dog is tested / registered from a litter of 6. You can get an idea of the number in a litter from the last two digits on a registration. If, for example, the Mom's reg# ends in /05, and she apparently has no siblings. . . alarm bells might sound too. She does have at least 4 brothers and sisters - so why are they not listed ?
I do spend hours each week, checking for siblings on the AKC website once I get a registration, date of birth and Mom.
@karabovm - You might try https://www.kusa.co.za/index.php kennel club in south africa, they might be able to give you some leads.... or try and find a dog show and visit them. Also you can ask other breeders of other hounds if they know of one.
To Georges Nana- I'm so thrilled to hear my pups and young adults ding well-- they always have a placein my heart here on the red river( Rio Grande) in New Mexicoi- Doing some retraining myself on a girl who was out showing and finished her G ch with some gr placements who definintely needs some reacquaintance with her home virtues- back to rehoming as she is a beautiful talented girl- My original trainer died this week of pancreatic cancer quite suddenly so I am on my own only with her parting words to guide me- so I hope my successful training program continues Her uncle Tibby andI are working with her together.
