Looking for basenji breeder UK

Hi there, I’ve been searching for a few months now but am really struggling to find a basenji breeder in the UK. Willing to wait and travel to get this breed. Any suggestions? Thanks!

cast your hunt further. We lived in Hawaii and got our basenji from N.Z. Cost for dog and plane was $2000. He was worth it.


There is a member of this group that is one of the best breeders of basenjis in the UK. Because I respect her so highly, I won't reveal her name here. I don't know if she and her husband are still breeding either. So I'll let her answer this query herself, if she wishes.

As I've said several times in different threads - Covid has brought out a plethora of would-be Basenji owners, not just in UK but across Europe.

We are starting to fear dogs being dumped into Rescue when lockdown is lifted and people return to work in offices , having realised there is far more to owning a Basenji than just the facts that they don't bark, are small and keep themselves clean like cats.

I have had well over 70 - probably 80 now the weekend's crop of enquiries has been dealt with per email and entered into my notes - and am at a loss to be able to tell them of a single breeder who doesn't already have a waiting list full to overflowing.

Anyone posting me privately will receive a detailed response but it won't carry too much hope for this winter.
