@tanza Yes, she could be. Then again, she could also be part basenji. The OP wasn't looking for your Holy Basenji-Breeder Annointment of her dog as a purebred! She merely asked if, based on her dog's appearance and behaviour, she might have basenji blood. Is your self-image as a basenji breeder so fragile that you have to shoot down every newbie who wants info? This is a basenji forum--I thought all basenji lovers were welcome. You, ma'am, are a basenji snob!<<<
You are abusive and certainly the one with a massive ego. Your entire spewing venom above and your sick attack on breeders indicate we've got an animal rights lunatic or simply someone so full of hate they are incapable of seeing how totally unacceptable their behavior is.
She gave her freaking opinion. How condescending you are to suggest the poster needs people to lie to her. "Shoot down?" She asked for opinions. She wants honest opinions, and how dare you make her sound like some mentally unstable person who will be crushed by someone saying they don't see basenji.
Talk about someone making a mt out of a mole hill! You and your blatant abuse and attacks on Pat and breeders is what is sickening . You don't give a rats rear end about the original poster! You just wanted the chance to twist anything into an excuse for your tirade.
You are one of the most willfully ignorant people ever to come here. Many breeders are the foundation of their breed rescues. Many of them provide funds to help rescue...even though they are not part of the problem. Responsible breeders will take their puppies back no matter how old they are. We had a local breeder offer to take back or totally fund the care for a grand puppy she didn't own that hit rescue. (The breeder was out of the country.) Get you blinders off. There are many good breeders who help rescues...and there are many rescues that are hoarders or scammers or abusive.
