@daureen - I will also say that my C-Me picked me... note however that most all responsible breeders will pick the pup for the home.. this is why breeders want to know all about the home/family/lifestyle, we want them to be in their forever homes... that said there are exceptions.. in my case this was a puppy back from a breeding... I had the choice of the 5 bitches in the litter but from the moment that I went in the house, this was the pup that came to me and didn't want to leave. LOL... and in some cases there could be two that are about the same and would fit the family... then they have a choice. My C-Me was a great choice and while there were others in the litter that was maybe a bit nicer as a show puppy, but I could not turn away from this girl that picked me... She is a Dual Champion and whelped a wonderful litter... And she is a loving girl to all in the family
New owners, Basenji/American Bulldog mix?
Found the site while googling different Basenji mixes and seeing this post: http://www.basenjiforums.com/showthread.php?10065-Hello-This-is-Bailey-my-Basenji-Bull-mix
Looks like that person wasn't a frequent poster, but his dog looks exactly like Ivy, the dog we just adopted here in Indiana about 2 months ago. The breed description on wikipedia sounded a lot like her, somewhat aloof, likes to climb, sort of a trot walk, etc. No one seemed to shoot him down for thinking it might be part Basenji, and he knew the mom, so maybe we know what she is likely to be now! She has the wrinkly forehead and huge ears, similar size as the dog in the post above as well.
she was found in a parking lot, had tape worms, had just had puppies, had a respiratory infection, had a UTI and then skin infection at her spay site, an allergic reaction, and played with a pin cushion, luckily didnt eat any. All that in less than two months!
She's a stinker, but getting better and is lots of fun
