After more than 15 years without I now have a new Basenji. We live here in the Portland Oregon area. I had a couple of basenjis as a small child before my parents started breeding goldens. I got a Jack Russel for myself about 2 years ago and realized that a one dog house was not enough. So I thought long and hard about what kind of a dog to get that would be able to keep up with my Jacks energy and personality. Finaly I realized that I had totaly neglected to think about basenjis. So after almost 8 months of breeder research I found one I was comfortable with (Both the breeder and the bloodline), and now Charlie (My Jack) and I have welcomed into our house a little 10 week old female named Zaire.
