Looking

I am looking for a pup for my soon to be elevin year old, for his birthday.

Ultimately I would love to find a pup that traces back to our old family lines

But I cant find a search engine that will help me find a breeder that way.

Blood lines I am looking for are any Mitanni lines (the family line), Reveille Be Serious, Reveille Re Up, Levi, (Arizona dog don't remember the farm name)
Within the Mitanni line Lord Simba and Beguiling Miler would be a plus.

If anyone has Ideas…...I would appreciate it

I can't help you there but I'm sure other members here can, welcome to the forum

Those are some pretty old lines, you can check through www.pedigrees.zandebasenjis.com (a pedigree website) and see if there are recent breedings that go to these lines. Many/most of these dogs are in all ours back 5 to 6 generations for the American Basenjis. If you can get your hands on The Years of the American Basenji you can look for offspring that would have breeders/owners listed. As far as Reveille dogs, that would be Damara Bolte of Virginia and you might want to email her as she is still breeding.

You can use the reverse pedigree function in the database to find offspring and their descendents. It looks like the Mitanni family line may ended in the early '90s.

Re Up was a very heavily used sire and you will find him in the overwhelming majority of American pedigrees. He was born 40 years ago though so you have to dig deep to find him. Be Sirius was Re Up's son and Beguiling Miler was Be Sirius's daughter. Lord Simba is Miler's maternal grandsire. According to the database, it appears that the last progeny down from Lord Simba ended in 1994. He is no longer in the gene pool. You will find Re Up though. No doubt about that. Good luck to you. 🙂

LOL looks like Lisa and I were perusing the database at the same time. :p

I looked on zandes but I couldn't see how to link dogs with their breeders

That last litter you spoke of is the one my basenji came out of….. "Savage Intelligence"
but he was killed the year we were looking to get him a dam. The pups in that litter that are not champianed belong(ed) to family members as most of us didn't show and after dad died my stepmom never bred again. But there were supposed to be litters from some of the others. But I don't know how to track them down.

If they are not in Sally's database then they were probably never registered since she gets the AKC stud books to help keep her site up to date. If there is a kennel that you are interested in specifically and they are known in the basenji community someone on this Forum can probably get you the contact information.

Looks like there were two different litters with the same breeding. There are 4 registered with Birthdates on 1991 and 3 with birthdates of 1992. There is only one breeding listed and that is for Ch Allegro's Houligan Mitanni,SC (as the sire) and that was out of Khajah's Rainy Nite Serenade (and this bitch has a 1/2 sister that is by Ch Kenset's Wayfarer From Asbah), litter born in 1994 with 6 pups registered. All with the kennel name of Columbine, which I seem to remember, but can't place it…

You can not get the breeders from Sally pedigree site, only the dogs registered names and sometimes if a responsible breeder many of us will know the kennel names, just like my comment about Reveille, that is Damara Bolte.

Talk about a walk down memory lane - I would wonder about the dog CH Allegro's Houligan Mitanni as I seem to remember that there was some eye stuff (PRA) out of Houlihan and Blaze - I thought that many in the which way up were affected - or were thought to be affected - I remember getting a call since I had used Blaze as well and they were trying to track down where PRA might have come from.

I'll run your information by someone who has a pretty good head for tracking down pedigrees - I'll post it here or do a private to you if I find anything.

You know this question brought to mind a problem that all breeds run in to - Collective Memory. I know there are a few people that have been around and in basenjis for so many years they have an extensive knowledge base about the history of our dogs as a breed and about the times that predate many of our involvement.

If you are lucky enough to have a couple of these folks in your area - take time to talk to them about the breed to see what they know and how it could help you in your breeding program, and in your stewardship of the breed. It is important that this information be shared, preserved and passed on.

Unfortunately in Pa I don't know any basenji folks, though I have started talking to one breeder via email. In fact in the years I have been in Pa I have never seen a basenji. I never in a million years thought I would have ever been this far or this long from the basenjis. When my dog was killed I still had my coydogs, had to relocate, and my son was on the way and I thought when one of the family has a litter….....And now 11 years and alot of turmoil has passed. I want my son to enjoy that special bond and daily challenge that is a basenji.

Thanks for all the help folks, will keep you posted.

Basenji_Boy is in PA and he's got six of them

HAAHHAAHHA I saw that and sent him an email not ten minutes ago

Great minds….......

LMAO, internet ESP

Thank you for the pedigree site I actually was able to look at Trixie's sire and dam!! That was pretty cool!

Looks like your connection to Basenji Forums was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
