Roxandsweet–-welcome to the board and Merry Christmas!! You may want to go through and read some of the older threads, intros, health, and breeding information to get yourself acquainted with what is the norm in the basenji breed.
You will find that the acceptable minimum of health-testing in basenjis prior to breeding is: hips, fanconi, and eyes. Adding in thyroid gets your dog a CHIC number. Since you have a litter on the ground, you will have plenty of money to complete the health-testing on your pair once the pups have go to their new homes….8 weeks of age or later. I would actually make the appointment now for them... then you can get it done for sure when she is in anestrus... a good time would be 12 weeks after delivery date.
Don't forget to order your Fanconi Tests for your puppies when they are about 2 weeks old. You can do the swabs when they are only 3 weeks old and have the results back before the pups are 8 weeks old! This is what a reputable breeder would do when breeding a litter involving a carrier. It will tell you which are clears and which are carriers, prior to sending the pups to their new homes.
I think folks posting here need to understand that anyone naming their dogs using a well-known [previously or currently used] kennel name, is generally not going to be a reputable breeder… these dogs are older, almost 4 and 6. Give her a break, and the benefit of the doubt.
Good luck with your pups... that is a lot of puppy poop to clean up! :eek:
