I think that a basenji puppy and a two-year-old is a recipe for disaster for many reasons. Both require and crave lots of attention, neither one can be reasoned with, both will want to play with the same toy, both can be stubborn, and the list goes. It is far too much to expect a two-year-old to understand how to get along with any puppy, especially a basenji puppy. If your heart is set on a basenji puppy, then I think you should wait until your child is at least five or six years old.Children that age understand what you are saying about the puppy and you can explain to them why you are saying it. I agree with the person who suggested getting an older basenji or how about a puppy of another breed? t one time in my life I had a basenji and a mixed breed, and they got along beautifully.
You may love all the traits of this breed but I was suggest that you talk to owners and their experiences with the basenjis and young children. One cannot count on even the best breeders to give you the full story. Please don't get me wrong. I've had three basenjis and adored them all. I got the first one when my youngest daughter was seven. You don't have to wait that long but two years old is too young, imho. Good luck.
Basenji puppies needing homes
My breeder who I have got my puppy off ( he's now 15months old) has some puppies for sale.
She needs them re homing soon as she's just left Ukraine and all the fighting. She's currently based in Romania with puppies. Puppies will be ready to leave within the next 2 weeks.
If you would like a puppy or would like to get in contact please let me know.

Good for her on getting them out. A breeder in Germany has managed to get 5 Ukrainian Basenji puppies and when they are out of quarantine, all have homes to go to. Fingers crossed these will be as lucky.
With so many puppies on the move, I am trying to get as many as possible into the database so they can be traced - PLEASE can you make sure there are records of these (and of your puppy and any siblings) by letting me know names, parents and birthdays ?
Glad to hear she and the puppies are out and safe.
I'm happy to get one of the male puppies. Please contact me or provide me her details, if they have any puppies left
I live in the united states

Wait... these puppies are in Romania and your in the USA. Gee, that's only a 10 hour flight (possibly in the cargo hold) plus time on both sides for processing and loading. Then there's the potential quarantine before departure and on arrival. That's a big ordeal for a "baby"!
Are you really in such a rush to get a dog?
I would be interested!! I'm in Canada(Quebec), don't hesitate to get in touch with me.
I'm based in Luxembourg and just found this post. How can I get in touch and how would the transfer be to receive the puppy?
@viknkrish hey are these still available? I would love to adopt a pup.
I'm based in Slovenija Ljubljana and just found this post. How can I get in touch and how would the transfer be to receive the puppy?
