• Hello to all of you basenji lovers out there. I have just become a new member of your froum and I would like to say hello .

  • Hello back!:) The more, the merrier….

  • Hello and welcome to the forum!

  • Houston

    Hello to you too.
    Tell us more about yourself and your love for basenjis and their mysterious ways.

  • Thanks you. For what it's worth my name is Jeff and my loved wife of 46 yrs is Donna . We lost our loved one 9/13/09 she was 16yrs and 7 mo. she was the love of our life, and we still miss her very much. We are in the process odopting a brat basenji His name is Ernie and he is from Michigan about a 30 min drive away. Ernie foster dad lives on a 80 acre farm with 5 other basenjis. Ernie is a very happy boy he is about 2 and 1/2 yrs old tri color. I have one question and I hope this is the place to ask, When we went to visit him we noticed he had a double coat , could anyone tell me if this is normal ? Thanks Jeff Toledo Ohio

  • Usually before they blow coat they will get what seems to be a double coat… under coat and top coat... I would however have his thyroid checked as if they have thyroid problems it can and does really effect the hair coat.
