Thanks Jazzy's Mom!

I will for sure get some good chew toys; do you have any recommendations?

Welcome, I'm guessing th pic in your avatar is your little one, absolutley adroable. As for puppy chew toys, petsmart has a good selection, puppy sized kongs are good too.

It's hard to say because each of my dogs had different preferences. Jazzy wouldn't touch the chew toys that hadn't come from a dead animal, LOL – no nylabones, etc. Whereas Keoki did/will chew on some of those. The bacon flavored things seem to interest him the most.

When he was teething, he liked those toys that had ridges on the edges.

Jazzy liked KONGs stuffed with peanut butter or cheese; Keoki could not have cared less for those. They both liked bones stuffed with cheese or a couple of soft treats.

My vet sells beef tendons, they are long, flat, and skinny {a little greasy feeling too} that all my dogs love. They are great because they take a long, long time to chew up. I haven't found them anywhere but the vets; I've looked at PetSmart, PetCo, Feed stores, etc.

And stuffed animals. LOTS of stuffed animals. They won't stay stuffed long, but they love re-killing the de-stuffed bodies too. LOL

Welcome and congratulations on being cancer free for 1 year. I have a dear friend who's first year will be up this Fall/Winter. A new basenji puppy is a GREAT way to celebrate too!

Welcome and congrats on both the pup and the good health! I too, am a survivor! Looking forward to lots of wonderful pictures and stories!!

Thank you everyone for your great support and advice! It's great to know there is a community of Basenji lovers out there, and really, it makes me feel better about humanity in general.

Best wishes to you all!

Thank you and congrats to your friend! I can't think of a better gift than a little independent Basenji pup. Her name does mean fate and destiny…

Really glad to hear you're healthy and welcome to the forum.. You have a sweet, adorable looking furry baby there.
