I would like to see photos of pups and parents as well.

You say parents have been Fanconi tested, what were the results of the test? Do the results appear on the OFA website? Is there a website for the breeder that we can check out?

The results are on the OFA website. Black Devil is a carrier, Sweepea is a clear.

Who named your dogs? The reason I ask is that the suffix "Of The Congo" was used by Veronica Tudor-Williams, one of the founders of the breed. It is a highly respected kennel name and to use "Of The Congo" on any Basenji now is in very poor taste.

We actually bought our dogs after they had already been registered with these names. We ourselves have not and will not be using "of the Congo" for any dogs we would name. Thanks for pointing this out.

Perhaps I missed it, but what's the name of your kennel?

Roxandsweet,

Please use our For Sale posting format described in For Sale/Waiting List Post Rules: Read First.

In the UK 'of the Congo' is a protected affix. Although I realise this is not the UK, I'm surprised that it has been used and that your KC would allow its use.

Veronica Tudor Williams was my first mentor and one of the first importers of the Basenji into the Western world and many of us still hold her in the deepest respect. I would imagine that many of your dogs go back to 'of the Congo' lines. I'm pleased to hear that you are not using the affix.

I'm sorry if this posting sounds a bit harsh and I don't mean to offend but feel deeply hurt to hear of the use of this affix.

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:

Hi! I live in Racine and would like to meet your pups…..but i am confused? Are the pups clear of fanconi? I didn't catch that. I would be interested in they are clear. I will not be breeding but i am looking for a very specific pup. I am looking for a brindle female. but might be interested in a male....depending. I will contact you later on your cell. thanks

Belinda,

I put the number in google and found this site with pics of pups and parents.

Steph,

Please start your puppy search at BCOSW.
There is a pretty extensive breeder directory there, and if those breeders do not have puppy plans, they can probably direct you to others who do.
You may need to wait to get the right puppy from the right breeder, but be patient.

In addition to probably clear, there is nothing wrong with a pup that is a probable carrier. And as Nicole said, there are plenty of options for breeders in the general WI area, they just may not all be breeding litters this year. I know of at least 3 litters that were whelped this year, and there are least that many planned for next year.

And any ad that states "barkless" and "non-shedding" is a warning sign IMO.

Looks like this person is just trying to sell puppies. There is very little information on the ad. Unfortunately, folks like stephmarieh will fall into the trap and buy a pup form one of these unscrupulous "breeders" and then pay the price later.

I tried to find out what the other three ads were on that classifieds website, but couldn't find a link to them. Wonder if they were for more pups and what breeds? Almost sounds like a puppy mill.

BTW: I've noticed the thread starter hasn't been on to answer any questions.

Are these 13 puppies all from the same sire/dam?

I would be pretty sure it is two different litters

Would be good to get the fanconi info on the second set of sire/dam.
