Only 1 Basenji but looking to get another

What is your coat color peference on the next one..another red & wht?

He's awesome.;)

My husband would like tri-color but I favor another red&wht. Not sure if we should get female or male companion.

I would say female.

Thank you!… I have been researching to determine which would be best. Chase has been socialized with other dogs. He is never aggressive toward other dogs. Usually the other dogs are more aggressive toward him. He has mild tempermant. We also have kids 21 and 18 and he is hardly left alone in a crate.

We had a male first and brought in a female 2 years later, without a problem. Now she's his worst nightmare, she pushes him around and he listens.:D It's really worked out well for us, they're always together. We currently have Willy 9 months and Jasper 6 months…both males. They tell me that as long as they where raised from pups together, there shouldn't be a problem. There's always the exception, I'll keep you posted...so far so good.

Ditto 🙂 The girls usually rule! I agree with BasenjiBoy...if you have the option of getting the opposite sex to what you have, that is usually the best combo.

Chase is very handsome, by the way!

Quercus,

Thank you!
I was looking at breeder Rugosa Basenji's near Toledo Ohio. Have you heard of her?

Yes, we are very good friends. You couldn't get a basenji from a more caring breeder.

Chase is a gorgeous boy!!! We too are looking to add a pup to our home. Rocket is a 5yr.old neutered boy and we are looking for a female this time. I hope to find a brindle this time, but they seem to be hard to find here in Texas.

It is hard to stop at one. We had our girl for a year then got a boy for companionship. I feel they do best in pairs and even tend to get into less –- a bored Basenji (or any dog) is a bad thing! If you want a puppy NOW, Ann Harrison (Hacker's Basenjis) near Indy had 2 mid season female puppies available a month ago. If she still has them, that would allow the 2 to be a bit closer in development. She a wonder breeder and cares greatly for her dogs. We have had 2 of her's -- great temperaments! Dr. Tracy (Select Basenji's) near Dayton, OH is also planning a litter this year. She also has wonderful dogs. I've also heard good things about Rugosa.

if you are looking for someone in Ohio area, I would like to suggest CarolAnn Worsham- Hicotn Basenjis. She is Dayna's breeder. We have bred Dayna last year, she might still have one of her pupies (about a year old now). here is her web site www.hicotn.com.
Good luck

cmd & dana,

Thank you for your replies of breeders. We have put our name on two breeders list and hoping to add our name to a third list. I guess we decided kinda of late and lot of lists we are at the bottom keeping our fingers crossed. I will check out Hicotn Basenjis as well since it is closer to home.

Thanks Again,

dana,

interesting… i can't get to the www.hicotn.com web site. Looks like it has been deactivated.

Try again. It should work. Also Ann's site is http://www.hackersbasenjis.com/

Another fun site to check out is http://www.zandebasenjis.com/

We also got started looking a little late, we didn't know we would be adding another B so soon. But we lost our 13yr. old boxer a few weeks ago and the house sure seems lonely with only 1 dog. Rocket seems better now, but he sure is a lonesome boy. My breeder was out of town this week, I will talk to her on Sunday and see what her breeding plans are for this year.

I hope you have let the breeders know that you are talking with other breeders. As a breeder, I know that waiting for the litter is difficult since there are so many unknowns. I only take a limited number of people on my waiting list and refer to other breeders if I do not think I will have enough puppies. It can be very frustrating to find out after the puppies are actually here that a person you had on the waiting list and therefore told others that your waiting list was full is actually not getting a puppy from you since you were their third choice and now that pups are here they know they have one from breeder 1.

Yes … I have been upfront....actually the first breeder isn't sure I will get one... 2nd one doesn't know if the the 2nd bitch took... and third one speaking this weekend.

i just wanted to add here that i checked the brat website this morning and there are several brindles available. you can see them at www.basenjirescue.org

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