Hello, from Michigan!

@edo_a I will add him to the database tomorrow. Give me his name and I can get the rest from the AKC website. But yes you must do the health tests Pat mentioned

@edo_a Her name is Heather. She is about 17 months old.Very sweet and energetic!

i am sitting here smiling at your little one. So cute. We have the same stuffy for our Basenji, too. I can't wait to hear about your life together.

@zande His name is properly spelled with an i rather than an e. So he is registered under Ido!

@edo_a But Edo is the informal spelling as itโ€™s more similar to how itโ€™s pronounced.

@edo_a I found him on the AKC website and he is now in the database. How about emailing me a photo for inclusion ?

I will be re-indexing and re-uploading the d/b later today so you will be able to see his entire pedigree and trace him back to the founders (eventually !)

I searched for any siblings - 02 through /06 but Edo is the only one from that litter registered with the AKC. Hmmm ! Was he indeed the only one in the litter ?

Yes, both parents are clear/normal for Fanconi so that is a relief but it is still better to get him checked 'in case' ! And both are indeed carriers of PRA which means you should instantly get him checked as tanza outlined.

doodle had the same fox... she killed it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

So sorry to hear about the PRA carriers. As @Zande and @tanza have said, you should get him checked. The good thing is that the odds are in his/your favor.

I don't understand why a breeder would take a chance like this but this may just be me. Of course sometimes there are "accidents".

Such a little cutie! Very nice looking Basenji. And such a clever and fierce hunter to have gotten a fox! ๐Ÿ˜‰

@zande Thank you for adding him to the database for me! He was 1 out of a litter of 6, hopefully some of his siblings will appear soon though. And if you would be able to message me your email address I would be happy to send you a photo to include(: Thank you for your kindness!

@edo_a my email address is in the websites in my signature block. Please send me a .jpg and I will add it.

I hope some of the siblings will be registered and that I can add them. But it is important they be tested for PRA too. So if you can make contact with any of them, it would be helpful to suggest it to them
