Advice on placing a pair of basenjis


  • Thanks for the reply. The dogs names are Dovers Argus Arakeen Mudzingwa and Bell's Conga Bear. Argus is the show dog.


  • Looks like both the sire and dam (brother and sister) are sired by Sal W's boy, you might want to try contacting her (She is president of the Basenji Club of America) and you can find contact information at www.basenji.org or her website at http://sonbar.homestead.com/

    Also, using BRAT is a good source also but they would be spay/neutered. I would not recommend placing an ad… as you never know "who" might be buying them and they wind up in a puppymill or Back Yard Breeder situation


  • If there is a big interest in breeding Argus, you can always collect and freeze. However, then who owns the semen? Pat's idea of contacting Sal W is excellent. I'm sure she'll be happy to assist you.


  • Thanks for the advice. I will definitely contact her.


  • Just an update on this, I believe that Sal has been contacted and is making arrangements for these two to be returned to her (and she is not the breeder, she is the stud owne..this goes to the strength of buying from responsible breeders)…

    But Sal did just post on another list that they were available..... but had to be placed together. If anyone know of someone looking for a pair, contact Sal directly at the links above...


  • I hope they find a good home. A pair of loving brothers is wonderful! My 2 boys, not blood related, really love each other. I prefer 2 boys to a male/female pair.

  • I just talked to the owner and he is waiting to here back from Sal so they can discuss the details of returning the boys. Although, I'm curious where she posted them. We've only talked to her very briefly.

    Thanks everyone for your help!

    It was on another Basenjis Chat List on YaHoo Groups. And she only posted that she was getting them but that if anyone knew someone that was interested to contact her.


  • It also went out as a personal messge to those of us in the MN/Wisc area who get inquiries. It is unfortunate that we have another M/F older pair also likely to need new homes.


  • Another update…we dropped off the boys at Sal's house this past Saturday. It was sad but it looks like a great environment for them to be in. We were lucky enough to meet a couple there that was planning to foster them for the near future. Thanks again for helping me find Sal.
