Hi all. Me and my fiance have a 6 month old male basenji, named Boss. He has all of his shots, is neutered, and has been vaccinated for rabies. We got boss from a breeder when he was 7 weeks old. We did not get any official papers (She had some hand-written information regarding his shots and such), but she assured us that Boss's parents have given 12 litters and all were Fanconi free.
We love Boss, but with our approaching wedding, we are afraid Boss may be too big of a commitment for a newly wed couple. Being a puppy - or a Basenji in general, as I have read - it is a pretty risky thing for Boss to be left home alone out of his crate, and it is unfair for him to be crated for 8 hours a day.
Boss has gone through PetSmart's beginning level puppy training. He doesn't always listen, but he does know the meaning of basic commands like leave it, drop it, and come. Boss loves to play, pretty much all day long. Unfortunately he hasn't quite learned that people don't enjoy play biting. He doesn't ever bite out of anger, but when he's riled up he might jump for your hands.
We are looking for either a previous basenji owner, or someone who very well understands the commitment level basenji's require. Preferably Boss's future owner would be someone who will not work 8 hour days, or at least has someone at home to let Boss out.
I'll post some pictures of Boss. He's a cute one
Edit: I couldn't get the images to show, so here's the links to them.
