I haven't asked you for your input crab a~~!! Yodeldogs
I know I said I wouldn't post anymore, but seriously this is the last one.
Yodeldogs IS my mentor. She has spent countless hours with me through e-mail, on the phone and in person at dog shows, lure coursing, on long distance trips to basenji specialties and in her own home teaching me, showing me, being patient with me, and giving me absolutely every single bit of knowledge she possibly has to give me. We have shown both of our girls at the same show where she cheered just as much for my own dog as hers.
She is what Tanza or Lvoss would be to me if I lived on the same coast as them. She's just the only one with enough guts to voice what we all thought, but she did it in a more pleasant way than the rest of us would have.
Seriously. No more posts from me. But I had to defend YodelDogs.
These disorders have been mentioned before in this and the other thread. You are not reading posts carefully. You are just hitting reply without fully digesting what is being said.
I am sure this link has been posted before but here it is again, http://www.basenji.org/PUBLIC/HealthInfo.htm It is the BCOA's page on health concerns in the basenji breed and it includes detailed information about each disease and testing.
Then take break, buy the ABC's of Dog Breeding and read it, email some breeders and owners, and just sit back and really take it in for awhile before just jumping to hit reply.
"pedro" writes and acts like a 12 year old with nothing better to do than to troll the forum and cause problems. I do not think you are a real adult nor do I think you are truly here for conversation. Please, go elsewhere to get your jollies.
mte!….Robyn...you crab @~~ !! Ha, ha...feel better soon!
Keep in mind that you will not be able to register any pups produced with the American Kennel Club or the United Kennel Club which are the only legit registries. The rest are made up so that pure for profit breeders can say their puppies have papers. They are of not more use that the paper they are printed on. So just in that respect you would not be a responsible breeder.
And you have been given many links within this thread of sites to visit and learn about the breed, health concerns, etc. that you have not taken advantage of doing so.
and as for you calling me lazy or ignorance you might want to go back to whenyou started out on do this!! you shure wasn't born a pro at it!!.
You are correct, none of us were pro's at it… HOWEVER, the difference is we found ourselves a mentor to learn from BEFORE we ever considered breeding anything.
thanks tanza i just didn't thank it would be that hard in breeding a dog!. now that i have been looking at all the stuff that go with it, exspecialy on the health !! you are right!!!! thank's alot for being nice and respectful to me over all this!!.i have changed my mine on breeding him!!!. but i would like to get a playmate for him. and everyone here have said it's best with differnt sexs!! but i'm not ready to breed thats'for sure!!!!!!!> i have to find a mentor!!. it would be great to find one. i'll have to look into getting a nother basenji after i get him fixed, but is it better to get him fixed or would it be better to the female fixed?? because i have heard that it takes off 3- 6 yrs. off his lifeline to fix a male dog of any kind!>?
The only studies I have seen about lifespan and being intact were done on mice and showed that neutered mice lived longer than intact mice.
Once the growth plates are closed which Pedro's would be there is no reason why to keep him intact. As has been stated before the reduced testerone levels will greatly reduce the chance of fights at the dog park even those initiated by other dogs.
that i have fou nd to not be true!! the one dalmation and the doberman where fixed and both charged at little man!!. so i guess it depends on the dog it self on that one.
Actually, it was probably the fact that your dog is intact and smells of testosterone that contributes to these incidents. One reason that many dog parks do not allow intact dogs is that even if they are not aggressively seeking fights they tend to be at the center of many dog park fights.
i didn't even thank of the smell of testosterone!! dau!! i really feel stupid now!. they have sutch a hight smell too !! i would love to be able to have there eyes, smell.and hearing! it would be great to have!. it could have been!! the guy said he never seen his dog do that before too!!.
Pat and Lisa, you 2 need an award. I got tired just reading this. If Pedro is listening, you have the best advice you will every have. Please, quit posting and re read all the stuff sent to you…then re read it again.
ALL you need has been sent.
You just need to "get it".
*this isn't a slam" I am also suspecting there is some mis communication here.
But please, if your a troll, leave us be, we are trying to help people.
Oh dear… I am exhausted already. Kudos to everyone who has been so patient. Pedro, I am new to this breed and am finding that reading up on the breed is the best way to start. That and being on this forum and being POLITE. The people you are asking questions to here are not trying to put either you or your dog down. I hope you understand that. Just try to be calm and slowly read what they are saying. And what about going to some dog shows where there are basenjis? I am hoping to meet some breeders this weekend at a dog show. I want the breeders to get to know me, and I want to get to know them and their dogs. There is so much involved in eventually becoming the owner of a well balanced family pet. There is even more to think of if you decide to breed dogs.
sharronhurlbut, i'm not a troll what ever that is!, but i want to be very informed and the good information not just what everybody has told me from other place and other breeders' either!!. so take a deep breath and breth!!. sorry i made ever body so mad but i like to make sure on information i get from people her and at other web site's !!. i know a breeder thats close and she flat out told me my dog was trash because he is a petshop dog!!, thats'not right to tell someone that. !. and also MISINFORMED ME ON ALOT OF THANG WITH THESE KINDS OA DOG.!!.
