I remember meeting Inky, or at least that name sounds awfully familar! Leo wasnt "show" material either. We often joked he was our perfect clearance puppy, lol! I've already started contacting a couple breeders. I appreciate you responding to me as I was nervous to even post as I didnt know what to expect.
I probably met them then! I even showed one of the boys from that litter. I don't remember his name though. It was at-least 12 years ago!
I still have my emails from Jan. She answered every single question I had and was so supportive. I was crushed when there wasn't a puppy for me in that litter. Jan knew I wanted a show dog and was honest with me that the pups she had remaining were not show quality and I appreciated that. When you are a kid it's the worst news ever though! It all worked out in the end!
I hope Jan shows up at the Cleveland show again this year. She's a special lady!
@MattB yes, she is! I just wish I could get ahold of her. We had her number years ago however when facebook became more popular we would keep in touch that way. It doesnt appear she has been on in a year or more. I appreciate that she gave us a chance with one of her babies!
I am sorry for your loss.
Check with the Basenji Breed Club referral page for breeders. Hopefully others here will have ideas who has puppies on the way or older ones needing homes.
