@Barklessdog:

I think the best profile for a basenji owner is a previous cat owner, I think they would have a better shot at understanding the breed. Owners have to be totaly commited to the dog. It's not a dog for the laxed owner. Our breeder really got to know us and "trained us" in basenji's including classes.

I could never breed basenji's because I could never part with all those puppies.

Oh trust me… right Lisa... as much as you love them.. by the time they are 10wks, you are ready for them to go to their new homes... and excited for their new owners.... 😃

Yeah, you're right about that. I am too soft hearted to let go of puppies. I'll tell you this…I would make sure the new parents of my pups were prepared, pre-screened to make sure they have never been charged with any animal neglect or abuse...I would want them to walk through fire to have one of my pups, then before you know it..I would have 10 B's...LOL It is alot to worry about, maybe someone on here would like to move to good ol' Tennessee...Tanza..Quercus...anyone??? LOL:D

How could anyone part with one of these little angels?

Not my picture-

Wow…so cute. I had no idea that Chicago looked like that!! Beautiful pic.:D

No there is no place in Chicago like this.

Not my picture.

Oh…I was going to say you have a beautiful yard. LOL Still..love the pic. Thanks for sharing!

Yep, by 10 weeks I am ready for them to go to their new homes. Then I get to do the proud grandma thing and get postcards and pictures.

My vet likes my dogs. They are well socialized, easy to examine, and generally well behaved. My trainers like my dogs for mostly the same the reasons though part of why we go to class is to maintain the socialization and good behavior. I do not kennel my dogs, I have a house sitter and she also likes my dogs and comments on the same characteristics.

I have encountered people who have had bad experiences with the breed but I do not think it is the norm. Breeders have worked very hard to breed good temperaments. Responsible breeders also do alot of early socialization to give a good foundation to their puppies when they go to their new homes.

Ditto to all of that, except, we do use a kennel. The woman who runs it loves our dogs! I always over prepare her, and warn her about Ivy, etc…and they are all perfect angels while they are there!

Those look like Cindy Griswold's dogs 🙂

I was just thinking the same thing… those are Cindy's dogs...

My Vet(s) and all the tech like my dogs… well except if they are there for a procedure that requires IV dip.... Kristii and Mickii "remove" them regardless of how they try to stop them... 😃 They usually have to have a tech sit with them the entire time... 😉 I don't kennel mine either, I am lucky to have a house sitter that loves all Basenjis...

My vet and staff all love my B's also. They've never so much as wiggled on the table, and always greet everyone who enters the room.

Our tri male is great until the nail trimming, taking blood, getting shots, no problem, examining him is also no problem. It's always the nail trimming he hates. He's always hated it.

Our female on the other hand is a scaredy dog so EVERYTHING the vet does is full of drama. She struggles on the table, she never bites, but you have to wrestle her still. One time while getting a vacination shot she actually broke my wife's nose in two places by jerking her head around. She was still till the shot, then WHAM! Now my wife wont take them to the vet anymore, I have to.

On time while nail trimming, which our female also hates (she wont bite) actually freaked out so bad, that poop shot out of her bottom!

Getting a group to sit for a picture like that is no easy task, impressive.

Great looking B's, it is a very cool picture and setting.

Getting any basenji to sit still that is not sleeping is a task!

@Barklessdog:

I got that picture from the Basenji Picture site I had in my Basenji Web Site Thread. A lot a really professional photo's there.

That is a problem with posting pictures on line, anyone can copy them. If you post a picture you have to accept a million people could be copying or using your picture.

True, of course you could have posted that it was not your picture….

Actually, though anyone could copy it, it does not make it any less a violation of copyright. If someone uses someone else's picture there are ways to correctly cite a source.

Is everything published on the Internet {or in print, for that matter} protected by copyright laws? Or isn't there a need for an actual copyright?

NOT in any way saying that sources shouldn't be cited, due credit given.
Simply asking the question because I don't know the answer.
