hi Pedro, I am sorry that your dog was called 'trash'. All living animals and beings have a right to happiness and a good, healthy life. I myself don't like the idea of feeding table scraps to dogs. A good quality dog food has the properly balanced ingredients to provide a dog with proper nutrition. Us humans don't always eat properly, but at least we can feed our animals well, right? I don't think the odd 'treat' off of your plate is a problem, but just make sure you know what human food is and isn't safe for a dog to eat. Here is a link that talks about problem 'human' foods. http://www.articlesbase.com/pets-articles/toxic-foods-for-dogs-191994.html I would think that there would be other foods as well. Just as some people have specific food allergies, individual dogs can have them to foods other dogs eat safely.
PEDRO. we all do want to help you. It seems sometimes we are saying the same things over and over. Sorry if I offended you. Just tired and these post just seem to be too much. Go to the BCOA site and find out who does b's in your area. Go to some dog shows. YOU will have to find them. Then it will be easier to explain.
Many people on this Forum feed "raw" and only use people food. I use both, fresh meat, veggies, (and the meat is usually raw or lightly cooked)… but I use a high quality dog food too.. one that is all natural...
You can find shows and other activities close to you, but you need to do the research.
And why would you want a Basenji that is not AKC registered? If that is the case, consider a rescue www.basenjirescue.org… and if you think too expensive, then save your money till you can afford a well bred puppy from a responsible breeder
