I've had a basenji in my life since my father brought one home to the family in the mid sixties. My present basenji female is a tri-color named "Zulu" (not her registered name, which was given to her by the breeder). I'm not interested in showing dogs but prefer to have a companion basenji.
Zulu is 11 years old, but looks and acts much younger. She caught a squirrel as a 10 year old, when I thought that
her squirrel catching days were over.
She is all basenji in her demeanor, but is the first basenji I've ever had which isn't an escape artist, for which I am most grateful. I continue to be entranced by the basenji personality after all these years.
While studying in Li?ge, Belgium in 2006, I was thrilled to see a red and white basenji walking with its master. I
also saw a very old film made when the Belgians were still in the Congo that had 2 basenjis in the background. I've
since discovered that there are basenji lovers and breeders
in Belgium.
I'm glad to discover the basenji forum!
