Hello Basenji Owners,
I'm a bit behind most of you folks with the reading/research and preparedness of owning a Basenji. I've had Duke since he was about 10-12 weeks old. We got him March 11, 2006. My husband's friend found (2) pups in a bag in the middle of a new homes sales office parking lot. I imagine the ones abandoning the pups hoped they could be offered to new home buyers??? I took one of the cuties home, got it healthy and today he's got to be 6 months old. I found out this week . . . I have a full-blooded Basenji. For (4) months he was thought to be a mutt. I have never heard of the breed. Turns out Duke isn't a "crazy dog", he's a "Basenji!!"
Well we think he's cute, fun and we love him like "crazy". So here I am . . . seeking counsel and support for my dog-son Duke. The more I read about our Basenji, the more I realize I've got a job ahead of me. It's amazing how life suddenly turns us left when we want to go right. I have high hopes that we (I) do Duke right as a Basenji owner.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you all in this fourm - Thanks!!
