My name is Virginia and am new to this forum.
I live in The Netherlands with my Border Collie, Sphynx, Scottish Fold and off course 2 Basenji's!
I'm 25 years old, work in the elevator industry as an administrator employee. I studied about animals, used to train and educate people with their dogs.
Ever since I can remember I love Bsenji's, so when I got a call about a basenji which was searching for a nee home, I literally jumped in my car and picked him up!
Biko, red/white Mal? without pedigree was 4 years old when i got him. He was partial bald, skinny and terrified for a lot off things.
It took a lot of patience, time and different trainingtechnices but within a year he turned from a Neglected dog into a sweet trusting friend for life..
Biko will turn 10 years old in april 2014, lies in front of the stove everyday.. Living the good life!!
A few months ago I picked up a former stud which was dumped at ? local shelter here in the Netherlands. His name is Abotere's Khamau, a red/white 8 year old male.
He's neutured, getting the respect, love and respect he deserves after all those years making Offspring.. He's such a friendly gentle dog so I decided to keep him! He trusts me completly, that's an amazing honor!
Next to this precious men I have other pets..
? 4 year old blue merle border Collie bitch. I train obedience, agility and trailwork with her.. After all, you need at least 1 well trained dog in a household
Than there are my 2 Cats': Femi the sphynx and Feija the Scottish Fold!
Yes, all animals live in harmony next to eachother and that makes me the happiest woman om earth :d
I woud love to talk about Basenji's every day.. That's why i am here!
If you have any questions, please let me know :d
