  • Has anyone seen the basenji in the new Eukanuba Commercial? The commercial was shot in Oregon. There's a basenji (finall) on top of a boulder….looking exceptionally grand!

  • First Basenji's

    Yeah, we were watching the commercial and there is was, regally on the boulder! (great shot! :))I wonder how many people watching it will wonder was kind of dog it was! It is still funny to me how every 1 in three people I meet have never even heard of the Basenji!

  • Almost got thrown out of the gym. I'm on the elliptical and they have a tv in front of the machine. Saw the dogs trotting around and did my usual mental "Guess what breed WON'T be shown on this ad?" and then lo and behold - A BASENJI! Which is pretty much what I hollered out loud. Got a couple looks. :) Trying to find it for the wife to see…if anyone can find a link to it and post it, please do so!

    And yes, he looked very regal standing on his boulder.

  • Someone in our little basenji group pointed it out to the rest of us, and I have finally seen it - set the recorder and recorded it so my DH could see it too. Pretty girl Basenji - looks very much like one in our group who passed of Fanconi recently. So glad they are finally putting them in there!

  • I don't have regular TV (just Netflix; we're too rural for broadcast or cable and I'm too cheap to pay for satellite, lol) so I haven't seen it, but my mom told me about it a couple weeks ago! She doesn't have Basenjis but might as well be a Basenji owner by association as much as she loves my two…..she is a proud grandma to my pups for sure! The way she was describing the commercial and her reaction, she sounded about as excited as I would have if I'd seen it myself, LOL.

    I remarked that it's about time they used a Basenji to advertise something in a flattering manner. So far the only 2 times I've seen a Basenji on an advertisement or product, was on an in-store sign for Petsmart Obedience classes years ago, and on a bottle of flea & tick shampoo! Here it is in fact: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10312355&findingMethod=rr
    Made it seem to the public like Basenjis were flea-bitten troublemakers LOL. At least now they're finally geting a little dignity back :)

    Oh, your message is so nice I wish I could take all the credit, but somebody posted it on the BRAT facebook page! I'm just passing it along. But I will take the hug regardless!!! :)

  • Not to be a spoil sport, but I for one am glad our breed is not well known, or featured in a lot of commercials. God forbid they should ever star a Basenji in another movie! From bitter experience, lovers of other breeds that have become popular have learned it is the "kiss of death". Once something is in demand, all the puppy mills start churning it out and ruin the breed. There is something to be said for enjoying our wonderful, quirky dogs quietly. Like belonging to a private club. :)
