We went and took a look at the Basenji's. Spent some time with the breeder and playing with the adult dogs. Several trips and a million questions later we put a deposit down on one yesterday. So excited we get our little guy in January. Cannot wait. Now to decide on a name...
A puppy!!! How exciting!!! You mention you will be getting him in January... How old will he be at that time? I know you want to bring him home asap, but please be sure he gets enough time (minimum 10-12 weeks?) with his mom and littermates to learn manners (i.e., how to pull his bites and other dog-to-dog communications) before you bring him home. I can't wait to hear how it goes. My favorite thing to tell people about this breed is that when they love you, it is their idea - it is not because you are a source of food and/or a loving companion. What's better than a basenji? Two basenjis!
