Serious Concerns about a Breeder in Quebec

    Hi,

    I have some concerns about a breeder in Quebec. I've been researching Basenjis to see if it would be the right breed for our family and I came across this website - http://www.kamybonno.com/431197017 Is this considered responsible breeding? Is it normal to breed this many dogs and be a member of the Basenji Club of Canada?

    These people have some award winning dogs (Basenjis and Labs) and appear to be respected members in the community. Does anyone have any experience with this breeder? Like seeing their facility etc?

    I'm not looking to start a witch hunt - my concern is the well being for all the dogs involved.

  • Eng translating, not getting a lot of info. There was a short thread here a few years ago:

    https://basenjiforums.com/topic/13239/hello-from-montreal-canada/2

    They are listed on the Basenji Club of Canada... but i have no idea what requirements are needed to be listed;

    I am seeing dogs shown, but hopefully some here with actual experience and knowledge of this breeder can hep.

    It is not abnormal to breed more than one breed. As for the listing of dogs, many may be co-owned, which is also not unusual.

    I've heard that none of the QC breeders are very reputable, maybe that's unfair but in my very limited experience with them I would have to agree. Many of the QC breeders dogs/puppies end up in shelters, there are also a lot of puppymills in QC, There are 2 QC breeders' Basenjis here in Alberta that I know of, both being rescued shelter dogs. One is a Josabry Basenji, the other is not but they do share a parent. The Josabry Basenji is very handsome but suffers from IBD. I believe BRAT has a Basenji from yet another QC breeder. I would not buy a Basenji in QC, go to Ontario, lots of good Basenji breeders there.
