Who has the largest Basenji

Gipper made me want to start this thread.

I don't mean grotesquely fat ones, lets see those big guys!

Our girl is about 26 pounds

That is pretty hefty…. for a bitch.. my male, OJ, who is a tall big boy at close to 18" is only 28lbs..... all of my girls are under 22lbs, Mickii who is about 16 1/4" tall, Maggii who is about 15 1/2" tall and Kristii at 15" tall (and she at last weigh in was 20lbs...

She could stand to loose two pounds for a pet weight, more if she was a show dog (she's pigeon toed)

Querk is always just under 25# unless he is really FAT (I like that, because then everybody gets the same heartworm med)! All my girls hover around 20# Bella is always a little over…and Luna is always under.

That is big…but she doesn't look very fat....

This is Max and Jasper, just took the picture. We just had Max on the scale, he's 35 lbs. Measures 19.5 at shoulder. Jasper is 22 lbs. Cleo is big for a bitch, I'm guessing 26 to 28 lbs.

Max is in the middle of a coat change…..note the hair on the sides of his head. He looks really funny, we've been calling him Bozo.

That is a great photo…really shows the difference between the two...and the all look JUST thrilled to be thrust into the camera!

I love the one peeking in from the window...'hey watcha doin' in there'

Do B mixes count? Hollie weighs in around 35 lbs.

Wow, Max is huge!

I have seen a lot a fairly small basenji's at dog shows too. One had smaller ears, not the radar dishes they carry now!

No offense (mine has them too)

the brindle pictured looks to have smaller ears?

Yeah, Max can can double as a tv sat dish.:D

That's Max's half sister Penny, she's a big gal too…...26lbs and not an ounce of fat.

Both are great looking dogs. Max looks really lovable!

Do judges frown on larger dogs or do they just judge how they are put together and move?

Well, in his defense, the way he is holding them at half mast makes the ears look even bigger.

Max is way off breed standard because of size, we never showed him. You could show him, I don't know how successful you'd be.

This is Max's dad you can check the pedigree. Max's litter is listed several down the line, he is registered Timar's glittering image. Notice his brother is a Canadian champion, he's a big B too, not as big as Max.

BasenjiBoy- I can't believe Max is going to beat out Miles!! Miles is 32.5lbs!! Dang… I thought we had you beat!! Miles has put added 10% of his body weight since we rescued him. I still think he could stand to add another pound or two. You can still see his ribs when he moves- but he's at a good weight now. No fat, that's for sure.

Lexi's still small at 18lbs.


Yeah they are both big boys, I bet they're close.;)

We will have to have a get-together to compare!! 😉
