Places to meet a Basenji? (Columbus, OH)

Hello! I have been obsessed with basenjis for a couple years now, but I have never seen one in person. I'd love the chance to see some and/or talk to some more experienced owners. Not looking to get one right now; I wanted to wait a couple years for when the timing is right. Is there anyone in the Columbus, OH area (I'd even travel to Cleveland) who's basenji I can meet? Or do you know of a breeder in the area that would let me and my partner visit to talk about the breed?

Basenji Rescue And Transport (BRAT) has 29 volunteers who have Basenjis within 60 miles of Columbus,and there are 15 within 20 miles. I'm sure that I can find you somebody.

also, contact the ohio breeders. 🙂 And find out when shows are.


Best dog I had ever owned.

OMG- what a beautiful dog! My deepest condolences.

There is Hi'Cotn at Urbana, she has some interesting ones, and medium Schnauzers.

@redial I just looked up HiCotn and CarolAnn seems great! Is there any reason she's not listed as a breeder on the BCOA website?

@catherineseifert - It is optional if breeders want to be listed or not. She is well known in the breed and is responsible.

Why would a breeder choose not to be listed?

@debradownsouth - costs money to be listed, they may not want to spend it.... lots of people have lots of reasons. I don't question them. Bottom line, responsible breeders know who the responsible breeders are.
