I saw Jan last year! She popped up at a dog show and held one of my dogs for me ring side. I owe her a lot.. I was probably supposed to get one of Leo's siblings from her (the timing would have been about right) but it didn't work out and she referred me to Tad. If Leo was one of the pups in that litter I probably held him at one point! I will be forever grateful to her. She was the first person to respond to my emails, I was a 16 year old kid who wanted a basenji more than anything and she took me seriously.
You are right though, she no longer breeds or shows. She said she'd look me up when she got on FB again but I haven't heard from her.
I think you will be happy with a puppy from anyone on the list I posted. I'm partial to Tad of Meisterhaus because all 3 of my dogs were from him. If you did decided to go with him you are welcome to meet my dogs. We will be at the Columbus and Cleveland dog shows. I know Sue of Klassic basenjis will have some litters this year for sure. We talked about them over the summer. She's in Marion, OH.
