When talking to breeders, who much can you request from a litter? I under the more you expect and rqst the less likely you are to get a puppy from the next litter. For example I would prefer a black and white pup, but would be very happy w/ any basenji as long as it has the "basenji personality". I have talked to several breeders w/in 6 hours of me and I landed on sherwood in Georgia b/c of the bitch she is breeding next and the information she was able to provide.
I don't expect a puppy from any breeder until next january or feb b/c of the typically basenji breeding cycle. As you can tell I'm very excited to know I've even taken this step b/c I've been looking at basenji's for a year or 2 now and finally decided I need a life long companion like this.
But I guess out of curiousity besides asking the needed questions about health, the sir/dam, and do forth. What else did people discuss with breeders and how often did you keep in touch with them. Being added to a waiting list is all good, but I want to continue show interest.
