If you belong to Facebook please join the group "Basenji Puppies/Puppys/Puppy’s: Get Educated BEFORE you BUY". You will learn from the group posts and information why the two breeders mentioned above are not considered "reputable" as well as a whole raft of other breeders considered "disreputable". You will also learn what constitutes a reputable breeder. A non-refundable deposit is a red flag, not being able to locate sire and dame test results on OFA is another, contracts where the breeder does not accept full responsibility of their pups or dogs if something goes wrong or you can no longer take care of him/her. Reputable does not mean they have to be a show breeder but usually they are. Not all puppies are meant for the show ring but their breeder should be breeding to the standard as if they were.
Breeders with open waiting lists for 2021-2022?
I'm looking for a reputable breeder that still have openings on their waiting list for their next basenji litters this winter.
I'm from Canada, and the breeders I have contacted so far are booked up until 2024, I'm willing to travel to another country (but closer the better).
I understand that most breeders have long waiting lists and I am aware that I might not get a puppy this winter, but I would like to try my luck by asking folks on this forum in case someone would know a good breeder who still accepts applications for the upcoming season.

First of all, I commend your dedication. You could check the breeder that I got my pup from if you're willing to travel to Florida, He is very honest and attentive I highly recommend him. His name is Leo over at Mibre Corzo Basenjis.

You could increase your odds for finding a pup if you would consider bringing home an older dog. (example: My girl was 18 months when I brought her home.) Just something to consider...

Agree w/ @ elbrant - something to consider . You get a young dog that is often potty trained, walks on a leash, and understands basic commands.
I have a preference for a puppy, but am open to a young dog as well :).
Thank you for the suggestion @rhughes89 , I'll take a look!
