There is nothing wrong with someone going specifically to a breeder.
Just as many of you feel getting a rescue dog is the way to go for most folks.
This couple has had a basenji, they know what to expect and prefer one from a breeder.
Most people that choose this route usually want the security of a well-bred dog with a history that is known.
With a rescue, we know that the vast majority of them are coming from the unknown even the ones that come with a pedigree since so many of those aren't actual pedigrees.
The BCOA site does list breeders and TheBasenji.com does list a number of dogs that breeders have listed for various reasons.
Best of luck to you on getting your ideal Basenji!
I agree… not everyone wants a rescue nor do they all suit their situations.. that is an "unknown"... and there is nothing wrong with deciding that they would rather have one from a breeder then from rescue... and remember that BRAT does not DNA test for Fanconi and responsible breeders do....
