@janenpete Help us help you....
First: Understand that "most" of this seasons puppies are (more than likely) already spoken for. You might find an older dog who could be placed with you, but a puppy could be a year away.
Second: I (personally) wasted a lot of time online "hunting" for a Basenji, only to become frustrated. Try looking locally. Many breeders and dog enthusiasts become members at the local "Kennel Club". Contact them and ask if they have any members that own or breed Basenji's. Or, if they have anyone that "shows" Basenji's at the Club's Dog Show.
Third: Saying you want a pup is great, but if no one knows where you are.... connecting with the right person may never happen. So, tell us where you are, please.
@elbrant - Elbrant, she is in AZ and she is not looking for a puppy, young adult male. In her post she notes that she has gone the route of rescue and breeders with no luck as of yet. Note she said that she contacted over 31 breeders.... As I told her, it takes time. Also I advised her that Medfly is no longer doing rescue as Karen has retired.

I don't see anything about Arizona, not that it matters. It's just a reminder that listing a location helps connect your want/need to (hopefully) someone who has what you are looking for (within a reasonable distance). If my advice doesn't help this particular person, it may help someone else in a similar situation.
