That distance is not that bad to find a reputable breeder. We drove from northern Michigan to Rockford Illinois and to Milwaukee Wisconsin to get (2) of our Basenjis, would do it again. Two of the best Basenjis we have had.
Looking for a Reputable breeder in Europe
I’m from Luxembourg and I’ve been looking for a breeder in the last few months around Luxembourg. All the breeders have been telling that they don’t have any puppies available.
I looked at France, Germany, Belgium and France.
Does anyone have any recommended breeders?
Thank you in advance

@actuallydamon - Not from Europe, however same breeding times as the US and most all responsible breeders have reservations lists for planning breedings this year. Pups are typically born Nov/Dec/Jan. So you might be looking and the Fall of 2021
cast your hunt further. World wide. We lived in Hawaii and found our love from New Zealand . Got it for $2,000 counting air cost.
I'm with Tanza zbout breeding times. I've had three basenjis; two were born in December and the third one in April. I still belong to the Swedish Basenji Society, and when their magazine publishes news about new litters, almost all of them were born in December. If you want a puppy, I think you are looking at the fall of 2021. Having said that, I'm sure there are young basenjis (not puppies) for sale year around.

@actuallydamon This time of year, nobody in the Northern Hemisphere expects to have puppies, although there are a few summer litters, probably under 5%.
Basenji girls have one season a year normally, starting about now. So puppies will be born around Christmas (a surprising number of litters require the turkey to be put back in the oven. . . ) and ready to leave the nest late February / early March.
Go to my website and read some of the articles on it (see signature block) and then email me privately and I will put you in touch with a breeder or two. ALL responsible breeders will subject you to Third Degree Interrogation so it is best to be prepared. . .

Interesting that 2 of my Basenjis were born in August, and 1 in November, so you never know.....but yes, usually December, and my Perry was born on Boxing Day. I think canvassing breeders for young dogs that have not worked out in a breeding program or that have been returned for some reason can sometimes find you a dog at this time of year.

@eeeefarm We have had more than our fair share of summer litters but that is extremely rare. And Ok might be true in USA but across Europe I doubt Damon would find a youngster such as you suggest. 'Finished' show dogs are very seldom passed on too.
I have put him in touch with a couple of the best people to help him get onto a waiting list
