I have a almost-4 year old male who's just a little sneak! He loves to chase squirrels and other creatures in my large fenced yard and typically loves to "help" me with my gardening. He also, typically, loves food and will try and knock his food dish out of my hands before I can get it to the floor! And if I'm not fast enough in preparing his dinner he'll take the dish and prance around the house with it!
I finally got a couple of pictures of EL D up on the members gallery page.
We live in the suburban Twin Cities area with a big enough yard so El D can run around enough to work off some energy. Even though he's an "only dog" there's enough neighbor dogs to keep him happy in the pee loop. He has the run of the house while I'm at work (surprisingly without problems) and burrows under the bed covers. I have a coat for him for winter walks but he barely tolerates it.
Well there are a couple of us breeders. Sally Wuornos of Sonbar Basenjis and Me, MIJOKR Basenjis. Up North there is Cresendo Basenjis (although she has not been breeding or showing lately and Faded Rose also not breeding often. down South Ankuh Basenjis - limited breeding) There are also 2 active puppy mills, one in Foley and one in Walnut Creek as well as another in Eau Clare WI that all sell animals and encourage breeding.
So as you can see - some good some not so good producers of basenjis. Add to that people that move here with the dogs - the rescue dogs that we've all found homes for in MN and voila - quite a basenji community.
