    Have you tried the BCOA Directory
    Heres a link but there are no breeders in TN. Maybe email some of them in neighboring states and see if they know anyone? Try to get a puppy from a reputable breeder who does the tests basenjis need.

  • Why do you want to breed? And if you do, first you should find a breeder as a mentor and learn about the breed (more then just having one) and what it means to become a responsible breeder. Learn about health testing and what tests should be done before even considering breeding.

    REMINDER::
    before this thread gets out of hand. Just keep it friendly :)

    Have you tried emailing one of the breeders on the website to see if they know anyone in your state?

    Oh, wow…when you were breeding, did you do health testing and show your b's?

    Did you show or do performance events with your Basenjis when you were breeding and doing health testing? Obviously if prior to 2007, that was before the Fanconi DNA test, but other health testing that is recommended is Hips, Eyes, Patellas, Thyroid. And knowing offspring, siblings, sire/dam, grandsire/dam and their health is important too.

    Now however, Fanconi DNA testing is really important.

    I do have to say, I have been in the breed for 20+ years and I don't know everything about the breed….:)

    Let me get this straight…
    You live with your bf, you have no car, you can't travel... not much funds, other dogs live with your mom, and you think you know enough to breed Basenjis?

    Wow. Really? I think you probably know far less than even the typical byb, much less puppy mill. Why do I think that? Someone who really knows the breed would know what a can of worms your impressively uninformed post opened up. In fact it is so inflammatory I suspect you are really just a troll looking for attention.

    I am begging you to stop looking for a dog to breed and make a buck off from, talk to breeders, read the sites they give you, get educated, and swear off being an irresponsible backyard breeder. You'll respect yourself in the morning.

    Now, backing out of this thread because working with rescue and cleaning up after people who think they have a right to breed and create misery and hell, I am not the one today to provide you with calm education.

    just because i dont have my own car doesnt mean that i dont know alot about the breed. and for your info my boyfriend works for y12 in oak ridge,tn which is a bomb plant for the goverment. yes me and my mom has bred in the past and yes we had everything tested on them. listen all im trying to do is find a female that i can breed with my moms male. i dont wont to argue with anyone.

    assuming that you do know about the breed, about all the necessary health testing, etc., why do you want to breed? is there something special about your mom's male - has won some championships or has perfect conformation and temperament?

    you don't seem to be very picky about what female you get. i don't know anything about breeding, but i do know that you should be looking for a dog that is health-tested and healthy, has good temperament and conformation, and is well-bred (and akc registered). it shouldn't just be whatever dog you find close to you.

    i'm just suggesting that you evaluate your reasons for wanting to breed. do you want to keep all the puppies as pets, or are you hoping to sell the puppies?

    Can you give us information on your male..Sire/dam and such? That would be helpful to help us see what lines your basenji come from..

    yes he is akc registered. and i would have to have my mom look at his paper's to see what is sire's and dam's name's are. i would like to have a female that is registered or well bred. but it just seem's like everytime i look at one the prise on them is horrible and i gave 250 for the male i have now which is registered and has show bloodline's. and yes i wont to keep the puppies. like i have said in older post's i wont a female that will get along with a house cat and an 8 yr old little girl. i would love to find a pup that way it will grow up with the cat and little girl that way the pup dont think that the cat is lunch.

  • didn't you post in another thread you were looking for a female for around 250$? Maybe things were different when you used to breed but between 800-1000$ is typical and usually isn't baswed on whether the pup is for show or pet. If breeding is what you want to do then truthfully, price should be the last factor you should be concerned with.

  • I always thought Vickie of Rugosa basenjis did an excellent job of explaining why well-bred dogs cost what they do. Her webpage is a few years old, so we now have a Fanconi test and I'm sure prices have increased.

    then scroll down and click on the Puppy Prices link

    I'm also wondering how involved with rescue you are. Most reputable breeders take pride in helping basenji rescue.
