Help with Basenji Database

Hello everyone,

I am asking all the people who are on the forums to do the Basenji world a huge favor. If you have a pet Basenji please go to http://www.pedigrees.zandebasenjis.com/ to make sure your Basenjis pedigree is in the database. If it is not please email them to zandebasenjis@btopenworld.com. We are interested in all pedigrees they do not have to be AKC, CKC or FCI we want them all. Also if your pedigree in in the database or if you send it in please send along a photo of your basenji also.

Thanks for the heads up, but the breeder did that. All respectable breeders do that, dont they?

@tammensbasenjis what reason are you compiling this information? Just curious

I have the originalblue books complete to 1994. I will sell them if you are interested

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.

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.

@joan-duszka - Sally's database is used world wide by breeders almost every day.... It is of interest to the Basenji community as a whole to look up pedigrees on their Basenji or others.... I use it just about every day

I am very grateful for the photos which have been arriving throughout today ! PLEASE keep it up -
but maybe use sallypwallis@gmail.com - as the most reliable email address. If your Basenji is not already in the database, send Mom, Dad and the date of birth along with the photo.

@zande - and if you know, registered names please

@zande - and if you know, registered names please

If you know date of birth I can often figure out the litter and get the parents, especially if you know the breeder.
.
Date of birth and Mom is a great help.

Photos with a kennel name - I can add the pictures but can't 'guess' parents unless I have a birthday.

I know I have thanked you before, but your dedication to the database is truly a labor of love.

I do urge everyone to participate.
