So according to this, the parents and/or the pups have not been DNA tested for Fanconi?

I am wondering who is posting this ad since Mystical Basenjis is Dolores Harmon, who does not "do" email. Nor is she located in OK.
Her litter was b/w and r/w with a fanconi-clear sire and she lives in WV:

This would have to be someone else…. using Dolores' kennel name.
Shame on you.

I'm not sure. I think it's a BYB also, if you do a google search it's hard to find, but she lists the pups on myspace, dogster, and OKC superads.

It would sure be good to get full info on this so called litter for sale.

She has a myspace page, and according to that is only 22 yrs old.

I believe that Lisa Lynn, who has a B named Bella on this forum, may be her friend on myspace. Maybe she has more info.?
The myspace for this breeder is Basenji Puppies and the web addy is : http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=439250173

I just sent a message on myspace asking if tests were done for Fanconi, and/or hips, patella, thyroid.

Do let us know what you hear, if anything.

It is in pretty poor form to be using another breeder's kennel name. 😞

I am NOT defending this person… however... I would doubt that she has any idea what a responsible breeder is or that there might be someone with the same "kennel" name for their Basenjis. Or that people don't use the same names....

@YodelDogs:

My guess is that she isn't aware that she IS using another breeder's name.
Probably just sounded like a cool name.

but if these puppies are AKC registered, doesn't she have to register her kennel name? or do they allow you to use any kennel name? this just sounds fishy…

@Knipper:

Unless you pay to register the "kennel" name.. it is fair game… it is not required to register a kennel name... it is personal choice

Actually, it isn't even as simple as wanting to register your kennel name with AKC. I would like to be able to do that, but I do not breed enough litters to qualify for a registered kennel name. You must breed 5 litters in 5 years to qualify.

wow, that seems like a lot, especially considering what goes into a good litter.

Yes, especially when you only breed a litter because you plan to keep a puppy and all your dogs are housedogs.

@JazzysMom:

Maybe not but I hope she reads this and refrains from using it from this point on.

Yes, she recently sent me a friend request which I accepted. I suspected BYB also, I asked her a question about how long she had been breeding Basenjis. I was trying to get a response and dig a little deeper, but she never responded to my question… which made me even more suspicious. I left her as my friend for future reference, interesting she popped up here!
