It will be 2 years in July since my first actual dog Simba(others were family pets) died at 12yrs, he was a silver toy poodle and my faithful shadow. He has left a big gap. Hoping to get a Basenji this year if the planned litter of Senjabi Basenjis goes ahead and there is a puppy available for my family if we pass muster that is. Have been reading and learning from this forum, can't understand why anyone would buy from a breeder who does not do health testing , unless they just don't know, so thankful for the internet, knowledge at your fingertips. Sadly in New Zealand this breed is very unknown and know only one breeder who has a website and another that mainly breeds White Highland Terriers and does not breed Basenjis but did have a litter last year. Have asked regarding Health(Fanconi etc) of the dogs that will be the litter parents, best to dot all my i's and cross my t's. My dog Simba had a seizure at around 4 years and all tests showed a liver shunt but thankfully he never had anymore seizures till the last day of his life when they were continuous and was raced to the vet and PTS. Not a very nice end, so definitely a healthy pup for me. I think the breeding season is in June/July here so I have to be patient and enjoy photos on this forum. Keep up the good work informing puppy buyers what a good breeder looks like. Will be watching and learning.
