We have been lurking on this site for the last few days, reading stories and learning a lot.
We are two thirty-somethings who live in Ontario, Canada and would love to adopt a basenji.
My partner has had a dog his entire life but has been sans pet for several years now. Growing up I was only allowed to have pet fish (my brother is allergic to dogs/cats/dust/nuts/everything).
I agreed that our pet would be a dog, as long as I could pick the breed. Since I am a planner I read up on a million and one dogs (too many to mention). Although they have a reputation of being mischievous, the basenji was my favourite. Winning qualities were looks (it is so cute), size, shedding characteristics, and the yoddel. I also like the fact that it is somewhat rare (too rare, as I am having difficulty obtainning one).
I will continue reading your posts as they provide so much insight.
