Hello all, I'm searching for anyone who has a puppy from the same breeder I got my boy Kane from. She is located in Pennsylvania, her name is Susan. I want to talk with others who purchased one of her pups this time around and see how they're doing.
Your best choice is to try and contact the breeder directly... sorry to say, that is your best outcome. As I noted, only your boy was registered with AKC, so no idea where the rest of the litter might be or who purchased them. Since the sire was Mata Hauri Jenga you might want to try and contact the sire's owner and if she can give you any leads on possible other owners. You can contact her at [private email]. If they remove this email, contact me directly you can find my email on my website, link attached.
Good suggestion from tanza about contacting the owner of the sire. Out of curiosity what makes you think the problem is Giardia? I'd assume it was something else. Lots of possibilities, and probably most or all puppies have diarrhea at some point. If it is Giardia then you'd expect days without any issues other than foul odors.
To me the weight is low, but I've seen other reports of similar weights on pups who turned out OK. Limited experience but I'd expect the weight to be closer to 15 pounds than 5 pounds at 12 weeks.
I didn't assume it was Giardia. He tested positive for it. Susan told me other pups in the litter and one other litter tested positive so I had him tested for it. Some days were worse than others, there was loss of appetite, vomit, diarreah and lethargy. He's beating it now on the fourth week and second course of medicine since I've had him. He is eating more now and showing some personality.
Jerome I believe I have the other dog. If you want to talk I will give you my number. I don’t think there s a private message hear so email me personally with contact and I’ll call u. Had 3 brutal weeks with my pup but getting better.

@lisalindsley1 - Sorry for your problems with your pup... as I understand she might have bred more than one litter. If you go to http://www.pedigrees.zandebasenjis.com/ and put in the name Kane, is this the same sire and dam of the pup that you have? You can contact me directly by accessing my website for my email since chats are not private...
I understand that Jerome has been banned from this list? Seriously? Are you going to ban me also? This pup has been placed from a breeder that is not responsible? I think that this needs to be put to Alex the forum owner as this is a real problem... and should be noted to other breeders that are not responsible breeding? Alex? Really? There are now two that are from this list that have pups from this breeder, one that has now been PTS and one that is now trying to recover... and you would ban them? I have been on this list for more many years that I can remember... this is NOT acceptable.
Excuse me... it does... and it does concern me... this is a breeding that is related to my Basenjis and my breeding... so since you are not a breeder you need to respect responsible breeders for Basenjis. I take great exception to you and I know more about this breeding than you know. So it does concern me
