I'm fixing to have to put my 11yo German Shepherd down and I've been researching the Basenji breed for a long time. I love everything about the breed...energy level, independence, curiosity, size and of course, the minimal shedding. The Germans never stop shedding but they are awesome as are all animals :). Anyway, I'm looking to get on the list for a Basenji. Since, they only breed once a year...male or female. Would like a pup or anything under a year. Purebred desired & willing to pay for champion/show quality. Willing to wait but I searching to get lucky ASAP!
