• Hi All,

    Im Alysha. I live with my partner and have a horse and a couple of rats (yes, pet rats).

    Im a newbie to the Basenji world but have been doing plenty of research as in about 10wks i plan on bringin my new Basenji home.

    I decided about a year ago that i wanted a B.

    By sheer luck i found a breeder in the same town. I met her and all her basenji's on the weekend, and, i am completly in love with them.

    The mum-to-be, Missy, is due in about 10 days. Its a very exciting wait. The owner is very helpful and great and full of information. We are even allowed to come and see the puppies about a week after they are born and are allowed to visit after that as often as we like to play with the puppies, which i am highly happy about.

    Now to think of names and to finish preparing our household for our B πŸ™‚

    Both mum and dad have been tested for Fanconi and they are both clear πŸ™‚

    Any tips, please leave


  • Hi Lysh - great to have you here with us all. What an exciting time for you both, to be awaiting the birth of your new family member! What colouring is expected with the pairing of the two parents?

    Please take lots of pictures, because I'd love to see your new basenji from his/her very first days. Again, welcome!

  • Hey πŸ™‚

    I will take heaps of photos and will share the first couple of newborn(ish) photos from the owner as-well.

    The next couple of weeks are going to go so slow!

    Expecting r/w puppies.

    Dont know if these pics work (?) but this is mum:

    and this is Dad:

    Will be updating when we get some good news πŸ™‚

    Hi Lysh
    So happy to have you onboard.
    How exciting..keep us posted, would love to see the pictures when you get some.
    The pictures of mum and dad didn't show up..I would love to see them though.

  • Welcome and I can imagine how excited you are - you have obviously done all your research. look forward to seeing the pictures of your new baby.

    Hey πŸ™‚

    The next couple of weeks are going to go so slow!

    Expecting tan/white puppies.

    Pictures didn't work, but congrats… and just a little correction, in Basenjis they are Red and White, not Tan.

    Many of us are related by "our Basenjis", care to share the Sire and Dam's name or the Kennel name of the breeder?

  • Welcome, your in for a time with a basenji puppy!

  • Yes, hold onto your hat, you are going on a wild adventure with a basenji puppy! Congratulations! Can't wait to see the puppies.

  • Hi Lysh,

    Welcome, from one Aussie to another ;)…

    This is a fantastic site, with an incredible amount of knowledge. If you ever have a problem this forum would be your first stop for sure :).

    Your piccies didnt work, an Im dying to know who you are getting your little bundle of joy from... PM me if you want to. Im just curious to know, especially as Tanza said, we are often related by our B's. I have 3, all from Kylie Delacourt from Wazazi Kennels in NSW ;). Hopefully having a litter next month too :)...

  • Hi All,

    Sorry about the pics not working - i used to use Photobucket for pics but last time i went on it gave me a virus so im not really keen to use photobucket again LOL - tried to just upload from pc but that didnt work either. I will find a way to post the pics!

    I might have done alot of research πŸ™‚ BUT no doubt ill be on here for more information and guidance!

    I dont know much about the showing sides of things - but this is what i know:

    Lomar is the breeder prefix. Breeder of 4 grand Champions & winner of Speciality & All Breeds Best In show. I do know she is a very responsibe & knowledgable breeder πŸ™‚

  • Welcome to the forum, bet you can't wait to get your new baby.
    We have a 5 month old Basenji Pup called Malaika.

  • Welcome! You are so lucky that you will be able to visit with the pups from a week old until you take yours home with you. We were able to view our first Basenji pup (ended up plural as we took home 2 littermates but didn't know it at the time) at 3 days old, and visited about every 2 weeks until they were old enough to come home with us. Wouldn't trade those early glimpses of their personalities for anything!

  • Hi all, Puppies are due any day now πŸ™‚ VERY EXCITED!! πŸ™‚

  • Good Luck, cant wait for the big news :D…

  • @Lysh:

    Missy is the mum to be (Louise's) and im pretty sure the dog is called Cooper, which is owned by a Mt Garnet breeder.

    Can you share their registered names?
