Hello my name is Andrew and I am looking into getting a Basenji. I had a Basenji mix growing up and he was one of the smartest dogs I've ever owned. The more I read about Basenji's the more it explains all of the weird quirks he had. Hopefully my new dog will be just as strange.
I have people come over to meet my basenjis all the time just to meet the breed. Not to sell puppies or dogs but as part of breed education. Many responsible breeders have people come to their homes or meet with them at events so people can meet the breed. Basenjis are not for everyone and the best way to find out if they are the right breed for you is to meet them.
