Probably Carrier - sigh of relief …

@pedro:

i wouldnt breed with out all the test being doone.

And so why do you think that he should be bred?

i would like to breed him to have puppies from him. not for money but i know a few people that would puppies from him. and i have told them i know nothing of his back ground other then the names if the 5 generation of him. and that i would have to get him tested for some health problems to see if he has then!. why do you breed your basenji's!?

What a relief! Now you can look towards lots of happy days with your new pup.

what a relife!? what do you mean by that??.

I believe the person is responding to what this thread was really about, someone's test results that came back Carrier meaning their dog will never be symptomatic for the disease.

Though Carriers can produce puppies that are Affected if bred irresponsibly, they themselves will not develop the disease.

As already stated, responsible breeders bred to improve the breed.

i just don't know what to do and how to show him and where to go!!>

Hey Pedro,

Hopefully these links below can help make dog shows a little more understandable…at least what the judge is looking for. I'm not a breeder but I've been doing dog shows for less than a year now, and it definitely a lot more confusing from the outside looking in. I do it for the fun, it's a good bonding experience for me and my dog, and also keeps her socialized around other people and dogs. To give you an idea what the judges are looking for, here are some links regarding the breed standard that people have been talking about (if this has been posted before, i apologize, I'm getting lost in all the related threads).

This is an excerpt from a well know book which is an interpretation of the breed standard, that I think is helpful for the beginner (definitely was helpful for me). Unfortunately, the excerpt does not have a lot of non-ideal examples to compare too but you can get some idea.

This is the actual standard. This is what defines what a basenji is (appearance and structure) and what breeders strive towards in their breeding program. This is what the judge is thinking about in a dog show when he/she is looking at the dogs.

http://www.basenji.org/Basenji%20Standard/Index.htm

If you look over this and compare your basenji and other basenjis to it, it will help develop your "eye" for the breed…which IMO probably takes a number of years to be able to truly appreciate all the nuances.

@ChaseandZahrasmom:

Zahra's results came in today and she is Probably Carrier of Fanconi Syndrome. Since she is a pet store dog I was sure the results were going to come back that she was affected but I am so happy that she is just Probably a Carrier. It has been a stressful month waiting for the results to come back. but I am so happy! 🙂

I'm so happy for you and Zahra!

hi, now if you go to this page and scroll down to carectoristics on the rightside you will see a basenji and it like just like mine!!.i get asked everytime someone see's him if i have him in show and 1 lady that did do showings asked me that , but i said no! she then said why!!!?????? like i was crazy for not doing it!!.

i just wish ther was someone close out here that could look at him and see if he has the potensual to be in show.!!

Pedro, what page are you speaking about?

I think she is referring to the link of the breed standard I posted.

yep, yep, yep! that's it!!!>

is it true that basenji's normally get along better with the opposit sex?>!!

@pedro:

It is typically recommended that it is best to male/females rather then two males or two bitches. Obviously if male/females they are both spayed/neutered…. as accidents happen.
