All respectable breeders do that, dont they?
I WISH ! - some are very good others less so, and BYBs, pet shops and puppy mills are almost impossible to get data from ! And remember, the database doesn't cover or relate to only the USA. Data comes in from all over the world and now that Basenjis are travelling to and from many different countries it helps breeders.

what reason are you compiling this information? Just curious
I have been compiling this data since 1984 and the database now boasts almost 102,000 pedigrees, many with photos. Breeders use it because it offers data on Fanconi and PRA and allows for 'test matings'. Many pet owners love it because they can trace their Basenjis back through the years and often see photos of ancestors.
Why do I do it ? Impossible to answer. Many breeds have online databases but few are as large as Basenjis.
And I am very grateful to Laura for soliciting data on my behalf. I never got anything in from these forums ! You don't have to show any interest in it but thousands do - I assure you.
