  • Welcome….

    Has Simba been health tested? DNA for Fanconi, OFA for elbows and hips, CERF for eyes, Thyroid Panel, Patellas checked. Those health tests at the very least should be done before thinking about breeding (as too the bitch should have all those tests). What about the health of his Sire/Dam, Grand sire/dam, siblings? This is all important to knowing the health of your Basenji boy.

    Has Simba been shown in conformation or performance? What do you think Simba has to offer the breed? Are you willing to be responsible for all the pups he sires for their entire life? Give them a home if the people that might purchase them can not longer keep them or do not want them?These are all things you should be thinking about before thinking about breeding.

    So, can you tell us where you got your basenji from?

  • You didn't really answer any of the questions on why you want to breed? There are many, many nice looking Basenjis that have never been bred. There is really much more that responsible breeders taken into account before deciding to breed. At least in my opinion.

    Carlo. I do basenji rescue. I find folks who have not had these testings done on the dogs they breed can't sell the dogs and they end up in rescue.
    If your not a show person, and if you are, we would love to hear about it, then your a hobby breeder and that is hard to support.

    It is not a breeders forum, but we do have responsible breeders on this Forum. And it is important to think about why you are breeding. It is also important to do health testing before breeding.

  • You came here looking to offer stud service so obviously you thought there would be breeders on this forum otherwise why even bother to post?

    You have been asked legitimate questions about the animal you are offering at stud and have not answered any of them. Why should anyone with a female consider your male for breeding without a link to its OFA listing and its registered name so they can look him up in the pedigree database provided his information has been submitted? Your pictures while nice casual shots of a dog you clearly love are hardly helpful in evaluating whether this male has something to offer a bitch conformationally.

    Carlo's maybe your not aware that all dogs don't need to be bred. There are many homeless basenjis. Check out www.basenjirescue.org
    to see some of those who have fallen it rescue. There are many more not listed.
    There is a very strong code for ethical breeders..one point is that they take a dog back they breed at any age and at
    anytime.
    There is much to learn here, if your open to it and honest with us.

    Doesn't look like any heath testing as been done and the pedigree is incomplete (can be seen at http://www.pedigrees.zandebasenjis.com/search.html). Most likely because he comes from Columbia. It would be good to have the complete pedigree and it would be great if you sent it to Sally Wallis at sally.wallis@btopenworld.com

  • But breeding a litter usually produces more than 1 puppy. It means producing 4-6 puppies just so you can get 1 and there may be no boys so if you have your heart set on a son, you may not get that so then what?

    You will have been responsible for bringing these lives into this world and should then be responsible for them until they leave this world. IMO, stud dog owners are responsible for the pups their males produce. Are you willing to step up and take care of the pups if the dam's owner cannot or will not? Finding committed life long homes is no easy task and with the economy as it is, it has been particularly hard for breeders to find good homes.

    There are many factors to consider before breeding a litter.

  • First Basenji's

    Hello Simba's person. I can tell you love Simba very much, and he is a very beautiful dog. But again, it is hard to know for sure about his genetic soundness, temperament, etc. just from pictures alone, which is why everyone here is going to ask you for his health tests and pedigree. The basenji breeders who speak up on this forum have done a lot to try to improve the overall breed, inside and out, and it is always devastating to hear of haphazard breeding that sets back the efforts of those who are trying to do right by the breed.

    I don't know if we can change your mind about breeding your dog here, or at least convince you to do it in a responsible and ethical manner. Please be aware that anyone with a bitch that would be willing to breed to your Simba, at this point, is not someone who has the best interests of the breed in mind. They might see your dog and agree that he is beautiful, but because he has no record of health testing, everybody is taking a risk with the health of the puppies. You might not be doing it for money, but the OTHER person might. Please don't do something that you will regret in the long run, or create misery for a dog that you helped bring into this world.

  • Lots of Fanconi in that pedigree. You should really get your boy DNA'ed regardless if you breed or not, but certainly if you find a bitch to breed. That along with Hips, eyes, patellas, thryoid at the very least. That would go for the bitch also.

    Ok thank you one more time for the info Pat

    This week I'm talking to my dog's vet to get the tests he is missing
    My Wife and I appreciated all the comments,
    After reading all, She is considering to Buy a Female to Breed Simba and if We can't found a home for the pups, we will be Responsible for all of them.
    We will make sure the bitch has all these tests as well.

    Thank you and best regards.

    You Vet doesn't do Fanconi DNA. You order the cheek swab and do the test yourself. Order from http://www.offa.org/dnatesting/fanconi.html
