Hopefully you will get an answer, even if you did ask some 'sensitive' questions. When it comes to the welfare of animals (or any living thing for that matter) it would be so nice if people parked their egos at the door and just looked at the questions as something asked by someone who really cares.
I know that when I first became a member here, I was surprised at times by the frankness of questions asked. None of it is/was done to be cruel or nasty or to pass judgement. It's all done to make sure the basenjis we come across have the best possible chance at having good homes and are able to stay out of shelters.
I'm sure you didn't offend.
