• yes I am pretty sure that is his full name can you tell me how to look him up on AKC??


  • You can search AKC records here. http://www.akc.org/store/free/, I looked it up and your AKC registration number is HP03558701.


  • Has JR been to any AKC dog shows in the past 2 weeks?


  • @Alex:

    You can search AKC records here. http://www.akc.org/store/free/, I looked it up and your AKC registration number is HP03558701.

    You can find his full pedigree on http://www.pedigrees.zandebasenjis.com/

    Before you would even think about he as a sire… you need to do many health test... there is a sticky on this forum with those requirments that responsible breeders use...

    And really you know someone interested in using him as a sire... and you would then need to make sure the bitch has had all their health testing... there really is no such thing as "studding" a Basenji... or any other breed of dog for that matter... Love your dog.. and enjoy your dog... don't worry about breeding him.....

    However, I would recommend for your peace of mind to DNA him for Fanconi... go to www.basenjihealth.org for details. It is very important in our breed….


  • No he hasn't been in any shows for a couple of years now. His grandson I think it is won a dog show in Chelsea MI last summer.


  • JR still needs 1 point to finish his AKC championship. You will need to get him back in the show ring to earn that last point if you want him to be a champion. 🙂


  • If you really want to do go about this the right way, then please listen to the folks on this list.
    They love and care about b's and the dog that are produced.
    I think you might care about your boy as well.
    So, help us understand the boys lines your dog comes from and we can share information.


  • I am trying, like I said I have never had a pure breed before and I am glad for everyones help. I wanted to see how to go about doing this the right way and apologize for coming at you without my full paperwork on hand. I have followed the links you have posted and that is definitly him. I have moved 3 times since I got Jr and his sister Maxine and his papers have been misplaced over that time. Again thanks for your help. I posted his picture on here in my profile but am not sure if I have done it right.


  • If you are thinking of offering your dog at stud, then the first thing you will need to do is health testing. Take a look at this thread to see the health testing commonly done in the breed, http://basenjiforums.com/showthread.php?t=3657

    Since it looks like Linus is 1 point shy of his championship you will probably want to look into getting him into the show ring again to finish up his championship. You can look for upcoming shows at the AKC website, http://www.akc.org or at the Infodog website, http://www.infodog.com

    You may also want to look at the BCOA website, http://www.basenji.org, and see if there are any basenji clubs in your area that may have a Specialty show coming up. These are a great place to meet people and to get your dog out there to be seen.

    If you need to you can request a duplicate copy of his papers from AKC.


  • I am sorry to jump in late & reply.
    I have been way to busy to spend time on the internet & am indulging myself the week. It may be months before I visit the Forum again.
    Regarding breeding your boy. Most breeders will not breed to a male they do not know. They pick a Stud dog for his Health Testing, Pedigree, Show record, conformation & the owners connected. Sometimes location plays a major part. Conformation plays a big part of picking a Stud dog i.e. will he improve on my bitches movement? Topline? Earset?
    No dog is perfect & we are breeding to improve the Breed not to make money or just have puppies.
    Not questioning your information, but I would reccomend doing some research & getting all the information you can about you boy. Next regardless of breeding him or not, do ALL the health testing. This will be helpful for your Basenji's future health & maintance.
    Not all dogs or bitches are 'worthy' of being bred. Find out if you's is worthy & be picky about the bitch he is bred to. It is much easier to buy a Show quality puppy than to breed your next Show prospect.
    I work for a Veterinarian & many Dog owners want to 'Stud Out' their male. This never happens! As a bitch owner I will find the best dog out there that will mesh with my bitch to produce better puppies.
    Lastly I have had a dog die very suddenly from prostate problems. He died before I could get him to the Vet. This was years ago when the risk of anestetic was not worth it to me. He was a mix breed & a wonderful dog. Gumby taught he so much in life & his death taught me even more. Don't make the same mistake I made, it isn't worth it.
    NOT all Finished Champions are of true breeding quality. And "Sperm is Cheap"!!
    Best of luck & hugs to the pups.
