I registered a little while back, but have had little time to actually participate in the forums.
Anyways, I am a soon to be Basenji owner!
His/her name will be "Gizmo" (no idea what it will be since they have not been born yet, I am hoping for a male).
Not very original I know, but when I was testing out names with my family while showing pictures of the breed, Gizmo really stuck to everyone's hearts. He/she will be a red/white, so it is fitting.
I live in Europe, Norway. It's gonna be an adventure to see how willing Gizmo will be to go for walks during our wet weather and going to the toilet!
I have been told from the breeder they expect birth to take place around July 1, and hopefully there will be a r/w Gizmo there!
I am currently reading everything I can about Basenjis, and planing what equipment to buy. Maybe someone can help me out?
My first "obstical" is the plane trip to bring him home. I will travel out to get him, and I have decided to take him in the cabin with me. I just don't like the idea of a 8week old puppy in a noisy plane cargo hold. He will already be having a dramatic time being separated from his mother and siblings, I just don't want to put him through that as well! I need to build a trust after all! :p
So what size is the average Basenji at 8 weeks? Would something like a shiba bag be the way to go? I don't want to get a too big or small of a travel bag.
