Pictures of my basenji mix

I introduced myself and the dogs in the new members section but here are some pictures.

Basenji x Kanga (not sure what the x is - maybe whippet? ) is now 18 months or so and was rescued from a high kill shelter. The other dog pictures is my 7 yo JRT female who is a very low key JRT. I think the JRT raised a lot of puppies as she is super patient and loving to the basenji x even when the B first showed up and was a real fireball.

I see the basenji, but not the whippet part - no clue. But he's adorable and looks pretty fast to me. Maybe take him to a coursing?

Yep looks fast to me too! Very cute.

Pictures 2 and 3 look very basenji like to me, what a sweet JRT. They are lucky to have you and you are lucky to have them. So nice when they can enjoy each others company.

Jolanda and Kaiser

that puppy looks very basenji-ish.

She does look very basenji - and behaves more like a basenji, than anything else. She is spot on 20 lbs - which seems maybe a bit small if she was mixed with whippet (?) She was described as basenji/whippet x by the pound but I once had a german shepherd puppy that the pound called a terrier x, so I think sometimes it is best guess based on what the dog looked like to someone at the moment.

She is longer than a basenji with a long straight tail and the ears are wide set and huge which may not be showing in the original pictures. Here are some other pictures that show her ears and more of her body.

I am not positive about the lure coursing as it is hard to know what will take her interest. Or if interested once, she may not do it again! Plus - she is not purebred - not sure if that matters.

Thanks! The B x had failed out of her original home as I believe she was way too much dog. I think she likes it here and is devoted to my JRT who is truly a sweetheart. And they play and play and then curl up together. I was slightly worried at first as they are both female and both breeds are not known for their pacifist natures. But the JRT has a very deep wellspring of patience and the B is not nasty just naughty. Fingers crossed that my good luck continues.

Only registered purebreds can do AKC or ASFA coursing. However you can register her with AKC as a mixed breed, then she can do the Coursing Ability Test (after she is 1 year old). The CAT is for all breeds and mixes too. It is the AKC Canine Partners registration. Go to www.akc.org and seach for Canine Partners program

I have a question. Our 3 B's are all adoptees (rescues), all are full Basenji, we've had them tested by the Wisdom Panel Purebred Certification Test, but have not the slightest clue as to their bloodlines. What do we do to get them approved for lure coursing?

First Basenji's

For AKC, look into the ILP program. I have no idea about ASFA, but maybe once you have your ILP AKC number, you can transfer to ASFA
