Hello, I am really considering buying a puppy from South America in Colombia, are any of you familiar with a breeder name Diego canas from criadero de basenji in Colombia, before I make purchase, thanks
This is not the time of year to look for a Basenji in the Northern Hemisphere, let alone in Kent ! One breeder from there is reputed to have said he had enough advance orders for 4 years after the last year's rush to buy a Basenji !
But you could (maybe) get on a waiting list for next March delivery. Email me privately (address in websites on signature block) for a list of breed club secretaries.
Not too many responsible breeders in Fla... go to www.basenji.org and search by state. Note that Basenjis only come in season once a year and 99% of puppies are only born Nov/Dec/Jan, so you most likely will not find any pups this time of year
Are you saying he's breeding brother to sister, or just remarking he has them?
Don't put all your eggs in one basket... bitches miscarry, have one pup, lots of things.
As for whelping, I thought you said breeding and had to reread. The southern hemisphere is about 6 mos later for estrus. The below paper, I wonder if they followed up to see if basenjis are losing seasonal cycles.
For the most part, estrus occurs within the months of September and October for Basenjis living in the Northern Hemisphere. Breeders have also noticed a second estrus sometimes occurs around March or April. In England many Basenjis have a second estrus (Burns, 1952). This has created some concern that the Basenji is losing its annual cycle since leaving Africa. The tendency for a second annual cycle has existed in Africa and in the Bitches imported from Africa.... https://www.basenji.org/african/joha0210.htm
