Mya is my only Basenji. I hate to say this, but she was a gift of all things. I am not one on puppies as gifts - but my husband saw pictures of the pups and couldn't resist. Since I had a Toy Fox Terrier prior to her - I knew I HAD to read up on her breed. I can't tell everyone how pleased I am to have her as a part of our family. We are all pleased. She is so humorous and playful and very mischevious if unattended (15 wks. old so forgiven in my book). My favorite part of reading up on the Basenji breed is this line… "a tired Basenji is a good Basenji"...that's right on.
We got her from a local breeder in Pacific MO. We met her parents which are very good dogs. The puppies were very well taken care of socially and physically. Both of the parents are into coursing. And because of this I have also taken coursing into consideration - any comments are welcome!
Thanks for all of your comments. I love this site and will return daily for more!! I really enjoy all of the pictures and the good, bad, and ugly stories!
She is very cute… hopefully her sire and dam have been DNA tested for Fanconi. If not, you should consider getting the test done....
And coursing is a ball... B's love it...learn about it at www.asfa.org and also there are links to find coursing near you and also the different clubs that offer coursing. Take her early and let her start to practice.. I have had 10 wks old pups watch and start to play with the lure… here is a link to two of our 4 month olds having practice with the lure....http://www.tanzabasenjis.net/lure.html
