I would hope that they would read the other threads and take all the suggestions to heart. We all know what it is like to "want it now"…. but getting a puppy of any breed is not one of those things. As they say "All good things come to those who wait".

I hope that she will think twice about just buying a puppy, learn from the experience here and others that have gone through the same process.

I want a Basenji puppy for Christmas, too! 🙂

Ivoss said: "I would contact a responsible breeder and set up an appointment to meet with them. Explain that he has done all the research and you would like to set up the meeting so you can get on their waiting list. Then on Christmas create a great little gift package with basenji stuff in it, I am sure we can all point you to some great things to fill a basket for a perspective owner. Include in it a card with your appointment with the breeder and maybe some pics of their dogs. Then when you bring the pup home you have a well bred pup who is coming home to a household that has been able to prepare for its arrival and is ready to spend time helping it settle in".

I say: What a WONDERFUL and CREATIVE idea! Puts a smile on my face!

don't forget one of these in the basket:

how cute would that be????

Also, please rethink the 6-8 week time frame for getting a new puppy. Here's some really good info.

Those are fabulous, and what a good cause associated with them. I'm going to give myself one for Christmas!

OMG - I've _got _to get one (or more) of those!

yes, i know, i've been saying that for years, maybe after xmas. i'd like to just get the whole set.
they also have life sized basenjis, of course i have 3 of those__

I have a small Tri total basenji and a Steiff one that is awesome. Looks like the steiffs are still available from the German basenji club
