I see your post was back in Jan. so I hope you have your new basenji settled in. I also adopted a beasenji in Jan. She is my second. I adopted a 5 year old to be with my 3 yr. old, who had had 2 litters in the past and was bred for a 3rd one, but didn’t get pregnant. So the breeder, the same breeder our boy came from, decided to let her go to a forever home. I had to wait quite a while for her to be ready and I felt just like you. I couldn’t wait! I kept texting the breeder questions, request for photos, etc. When we picked her up she seemed comfortable with us right from the start. She has been a wonderful addition to our family, a good match for our 3yr. old boy. He’s a toughie but I think he’s met his match with her. He’s so much happier with his own friend. They love to be together. I hope your new pup is adjusting just as well as mine. Have fun. I think they make us laugh every day. Yes, you have to be on your toes with these guys, you have to make them a big part of your life. They can never just be a fixture. They are work but it’s worth it all. 3 years ago I was a newbie but not anymore, and I’m loving this wild ride.
Charo stuffed toy

I did some research online to see who might sell 'Charo - the cheetah with attitude'. Yowzers!
The toy is made by a company called Jungle Joe's in the line called 'Safari Friends'. I think they are now a collectible, because most of the ones I am finding online are over $30, but I can guarantee you that I spent under $10 for our 'Charo'.
On eBay (don't shoot the messenger) there is one for $16.97 (used). Here is the link. http://cgi.ebay.com/CHARO-CEETAH-Jungle-Joes-Safari-Plush-Talks-14-/270685393114?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f061b50da
Not sure why ours had no collar and was relatively cheap.
Yeah I also found those…maybe Pippin will get one if he is a good puppy
