I am looking to buy a female Basenji, but the problem is I live in Texas and I've been searching everywhere and can't seem to find any breeders nearby. Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and possibly the surrounding states. I can't afford to have one shipped so being able to drive and pick one up is no problem. Can anyone help me find a reputable breeder? Thanks and have a Merry Christmas.
It isn't that expensive to ship... and I suggest if you can't save up .... what happens if the puppy gets hurt or sick? Can you really handle the vet bills?
There are, however, breeders in Texas and Oklahoma. The problem is that many breeders have waiting list for puppies, so you may well have to wait a year if you only want a female and a young puppy. If you'll take older, many breeders may have 6 mos or older that didn't work out for their showing or breeding program... or puppies that were placed and didn't work out. Also, rescues.. are they not an option?
