Breeders in TN

I'm looking into purchasing or rescuing a young or puppy Basenji. Any know any reputable breeders in East or Middle TN. I've been looking all over the rescues and shelters to find one. Just looking for ideas, So I might be able to meet w/ a breeder.

Have you checked out www.basenji.org for breeder listings? Or if interested in rescue, try www.basenjirescue.org

Don't think there are any in TN, but certainly in the states near by. Sometimes you will have to travel a bit.

Check out Cairo, especially if you don't already have a male dog… Cairo does better with a female canine friend! He is five years old and a tri-color (sounds pretty sweet)! 🙂

Good luck with your search.
Let us know how it goes…

Thanks so much for the quick responses, I'll be doing some search in N. GA as my brother doesn't live far from there. I've done my research on basenji's for about a solid year now, but I'm nervous talking to a breeder that I'll forget some obvious questions. Is there certain things you all feels needs to be asked other than the Fanconi Testing on sire's and Dam's, and other health tests? I won't have a chance to visit the breeder more than once before I would have a chance to buy, so I want to try to make the most of conversations wither breeders.

I talked with several breeders pretty extensively by email before and after I met them with the questions I had. It was a while before I visited any of them (the closest was 3 h away). There is a post with a link to a list of standard questions everyone should ask a breeder when they are looking into getting a puppy.

Here's the link. http://www.basenji.org/learn/

Go to "screening breeders" at the top.

That is a great list…and great explanations of why those questions are important.
