@willfrog DON’t buy a dog online. In other words don’t pay a deposit until you’ve met the breeder and know that they are the real deal. At the very least get references and speak to the references. But, it’s better if you were to visit the breeder, see the kennel, meet the dogs, and see how the puppies are going to be raised. You likely won’t be able to see the puppy because it may not be born yet, but this is a dog that you may have for the next 14 to 15 years or more. It’s a big commitment. Do your due diligence. I can’t wait for you to get one if it’s right for you!

Maria is a sweet and active yearling that is in need of a forever home. She was kept to be shown and later used for breeding, but family health necessitates her placement. Maria loves to be walked and knows basic house manners and loves to sleep in bed. She would do fine with other basenjis. Raised with a cat, but we can't guarantee she won't really love the new kitty!

she is beautiful! If i was looking for an older dog id totally get her but I have to get an 8 week old puppy if im getting another basenji. I have had 3 bad experiences with older basenjis and i have decided if i get one, its gonna be a puppy so i can raise it how i want her to be! but she is georgous!
Sorry Whitney, there is a huge difference in bringing in a puppy mill/BYB Basenji than a well-bred one that is being groomed as your next "show star."
This girl is off to her new home in Germany this week.
Kathy, I certainly agree with you. It takes a lot of work to make a puppymill/BYB adult dog socialable and to become more like a normal dog. Sometimes even the older pups are traumatized. It is sad what some of these breeders/owners have done to their dogs and they do not see anything wrong with it.
hi - where does this basenji female live now ?
"Maria" is now called "Malia" and is co-owned by Uschi Grewe and lives with Roswitha and her Basenji boys.
