  • 0
  • Hello all!! Im new to the whole thread thing but i am really looking for the PERFECT name for my new basenji pup. She is a red and white female. I need help on picking her "call name" AND her "registered name" She is mostly brown with a small white mark on her back by her neck. It KINDA looks like a heart. I want a cute name and one i wont get sick of. i would like it to be 2 sylabols but am open to all options. She is 3 months old and i am so excited to get her! I have a red white 10 yr old female named Missy. I was 9 when i named her…lol not the best name. haha but i want a REALLY cute name and also ideas for her registered name. If anyone has ideas, PLEASE let me know. Name as many as you can! :D Thanks everyone so much!

  • What requirements does the breeder have for her registered name?

  • 0
  • thank you for helping out.There are no requirements on the name because she said she hasnt completed showing so I can name her whatever I choose and have her my own if i choose it. So there are no limitations, GO NUTS!!! :D

    I have previously had a dog named Ginger so i would rather not double up on the names, besides when you know a dog as a name then naming another dog that is just a reminder. i dont really want her to remind me of another one, i want her to be her own dog :) lol but Thanks a bunch for the suggestion. :D

    Id like to have a unique name. A girly name but not one that a person is named. So like Stacey and Stephanie and Katie. I dont like those. I just wanna find the perfect name! :D and Thanks to everyone who helps in advance. After I get her and pick the name ill post the final name on here, but any suggestions will help! Thanks a bunch!!

    What names are in her pedigree? Many use a combo of name from a dogs pedigree?

  • If you post some pics on here, it would help a lot. Without seeing the dog, it is almost impossible to name it!

    I am surprised your breeder didn't have some suggestions. I know many breeders do take an interest in this matter.
    BUT welcome and we are here to help you.

    How about naming her after a jewel - after all Basenjis are 'jewels' aren't they?

  • Wow! Thanks everyone!

    First Thanks to Thunderbird! I am happy to be onboard! lol Ill send some pics on here when i get her! I have paid but i am going to Georgia to visit family so i am leaving her with the breeder. I will get her hopefull May 4th!

    Second to Tanza, go to that pedigree site and type this in, its her pedigree and parents:
    Mother is Sweetpea of the Congo
    Father is Black Devil of the Congo
    If you know them, great! If not look them up and you will see the names in her pedigree. :)

    Third to TikaLynn, Im sorry i havent posted pics. I only have the ones of her on puppyfind.com Her name is Amy. If you want to go there you can see a pic of her.

    Fourth to Sharronhurtbut, I guess i never really asked her cuz i feel bad asking people to rename them when they picked a name for her. But i also thank you! I am happy to be on board and I appreciate your help!

    Fifth to Patty, thanks for the suggestionl They are jewls but i guess its not really a name i much like. I appreciate you trying tho, all names are welcome!

    Sixth to Kipawa, I had a puppy names Rain and its to close, and as for essie it doesnt seem like it would fit her.

    She has alot of personality. She is really smart and wrinkly. She is all red/white no white neck but a little mark on her back. her legs are also white. Ill try to post pictures, she is sending me more today. Ill try to do it. otherwise if you can look on puppyfind you can see her at 3 months.

    Thanks a bunch to EVERYONE!!! I appreciate the comments. Im also looking for a registering name and a call name. So if you have any ideas. I am leaning towards naming my kennel Dreamlite Kennels. If anyone has any other ideas about that i would be glad to hear them! Thanks a bunch!!!!

  • You should have her tested for her DNA Fanconi status since her Sire is a Carrier and Dam is Clear. She could be either Clear or Carrier. You would want to know that status especially if you ever considered breeding her. Of course there are many other tests before breeding that should be done and it doesn't look like her breeders have done any but the DNA for Fanconi. I do know many in the pedigree back 3 and 4 generations.

    PRA and hips are a big issue as well…

  • 0
  • yes i will definately have her tested for fanconi when i get her. and as far as the other ones if i breed i definately will, like the brucelles (i cannot remember how you spell that) and hips and eyes and thyroid and everything! If i do it im going to do it right!!! :D I wanna try to show her tho before i breed her if i breed her at all.

    Thank you everyone for being so kind and helping me out! I love all the pointers and suggestions and all the help!

    Each dog is judged on their own merits in the show ring, so it would be good for you to learn the Breed standard and then compare that against your pup first. And you have to learn to be very honest about your own dogs faults. Go to shows, look at the dogs/bitches that win, compare them to your own Basenji.

    Find a mentor, let them teach you about the breed. Of course it is best to find the mentor first before getting a puppy for the show ring so that they can guide and teach you about the breed and about conformation

  • Its rather hard to find people to mentor me. USUALLY when i talk to a breeder they are all about saying dont breed we dont need anymore puppies when thats not what im about. Im not just going to breed and breed and breed. I want to help better the basenjis too and have a good line of dogs. Otherwise they are nice and then i never hear from them again. I would like to learn more about showing basenjis. Do you know anyone who could help me? I know about the basenjis but not to much about showing. I mean i know a little bit. and i know you have to groom them, and there is a certain stance for all show dogs, and stuff but i would like to know more, more details and more important stuff.

    let me know if you can help, OR if you know someone else who can. :) I appreciate your help.

  • Bashasha…Swahili word for "joy" or "Charm" (Shasha for short)
    Tucheze...Swahili for "Let's dance" or "Let's play" (Cheze for short)
    Uzima...Swahili for "Life" (Zima for short)
    Kijibwa...Swahili for "Small dog" (Kiji for short)

    It's all I can come up with.

    Cheers!

    You can learn about shows at www.akc.org there is information for beginners. Again, go to shows and watch… and if you seach the Forum, there are threads on showing and good books about showing. First you need to understand the breed standard and if your pup is show quality or not.
