I had a situation similar to @elbrant. I contacted a breeder wanting to get on a list for a puppy. She said she had a 16 month female that was available -she was going to SHOW but changed her mind. I said I had my heart set on a puppy and she said “the puppy stage is short- lived and there were a lot of advantages of getting a young dog that was past the puppy stage - you should at least come and meet the dog.” Needless to say it was love at first sight - she immediately bonded w/ my husband curling up next to him. Years later the breeder stated to me that she knew we were the right family for the dog - that she had only seen 2 times when one of her dogs immediately bonded with a family. I always said “ Kembe chose us.” In hind sight it was a blessing - I got a dog that was potty trained, could walk on leash, and already knew basic commands. My only regret is that I did not get her a sibling so that she had a companion. You shouldn’t have any issues. Congratulations- look forward for great adventure and happiness with your new basenji.
Ready to run?

We finally got our fence complete a couple of days ago. Though dh finished the last bit while I was at work and got to watch them take their first sprint around the yard without me.
So tonight the fur kids had another B over to run with them in the yard. The lady who bought the B after falling in love with zoe lives a couple blocks from me and we let her brindle "Dixie" run with zoe and chief. Dixie is 2 days younger then chief. They ran around for an hour then layed for awhile at our feet before they ran some more. Seeing 3 Bs running together was great. Hubby better watch out LOL I have been throwing hints at him about fostering. But so far no bites :(.
Next time I need to get pics

Isn't it great to get an outstanding household task finished? And now you can spend your time letting b's run around without worry. Hope you all have fun and enjoy the new yard.
