When my daughter was pregnant she would stop by once a week and Izzy would always sniff her all over , most of all her stomach and around that area, her husband was afraid of Izzy being around the baby when he came , because Izzy is not a real friendly basenji especially to my son in law. Izzy has never had any aggression toward my grandson, my grandson is 7 now and Izzy is always there to protect him, when the grandson goes down the stairs Izzy is just one step in front of him like he is protecting him from falling. I don't know about other basenjis but Izzy loves kids, but not a lot of adults.
New to site
Hi everyone, I'm new to the site. I'm surprised I haven't found it before. I'm a certified vet tech and basenjis are my passion. My first dog as a child was a basenji and he was the best but when I went to college everyone disliked the breed for various reasons I'm sure you've all heard them. Ever since then my goal has been to become a breeder and make the wonderful qualities more known. I've done lots of research but I haven't started breeding because I don't want to be a back yard breeder. Does anyone have any tips or places to get quality breeding dogs?
Thanks alot I appreciate every bit of information.
