@tanza Dad was tested for fanconi and was clear. Mom was not tested. I'll get Chaga tested. Thank you so much for the info! Is there any reason to wait or can you test a puppy? Again, thank you so much!
Verify with OFA that he is clear of Fanconi. If he is, your pup might be a carrier but cannot be affected. The only reason for testing would be if you planned to breed her, which hopefully you aren't.
@debradownsouth ... "Chaga" refers to both an African Tribe and Mushrooms, the concept of a "truffle hunting dog" relates to the latter, mushrooms. Mushrooms, being a truffle, after all. So, there's no joke here about dogs hunting human beings. I'm sure it's just jet lag... I hope you are enjoying your new home.
No jet lag..one poster said also tribe, response wasn't hunt truffles, basenji hunt Chaga, it was hunt " the" Chaga. The op didn't disagree with my interpretation, another defended it as taste,, which wouldn't be an issue if the indication was mushrooms.
But considering the massive insertions into my comments by kindle the last months, I should not have locked on it. Posts deleted. Thanks. Giving benefit of doubt should always take priority....or ask for clarification.
