Hmmm… seems like we need a 23andMe solution for our pups. How bout we call it K9andme. I can remember most of my pups markings and have 100s of pics to refer to. That said they do change pretty fast. Our pup D’Otto was a split head with a nice dot right in white. It started as a dot and it’s still there! But it’s a bit more of an oval these days.
Breeders and shelters
april 23, 2010
i've alway hated the arguement that buying a dog from a breeder means a shelter dog looses a home. (not that dr mcconnell mentions that, but i hear it so often.) if i only had rescues, i'd have one maybe 2 dogs. as it is, i have 4, but one is a rescue.
I am very lucky, I do rescue and have support of many of the PNW breeders. I also have a very responsible breed club who take back any basenjis I find fall into rescue.
I am also able to refer folks to quality breeders who have puppies, who don't want a rescue.
So, win/win…and best of all the b's WIN!
