Hi my name is Mike, I live in South Carolina. Me and my family have 2 Basenji pups. They are about 7 months old now. 1 is male the other is female. There names (given by my kids) Moon (Male) Star (Female). I am here to get information about these types of pups. Training mainly.
Welcome Mike, Star and Moon. You are in for a voyage of discovery with your two Pups.
They are a challenging but wonderful breed and you will certainly find lots of great info on here.
What is life like with two Pups, we only have one 5 month old and life revolves around her
We got the pups from a lady my wife works with. They have not been spayed/neutered just yet. But that is on the top of our list. thanks for the welcome all.
Basenji bitches can and do come into their first season as early as 7 months… so keep an eye on her.... I am guessing they are littermates? Did they come from Russella?
They are litter mates and we try to keep them separated from each other for the time being until we get them spayed/neutered. The female is as laid back as cane be but her brother is a different story. He is the escape artist. She does not really try anything unless your brother does it first. They really are like 2 more kids. But, my two boys love them and help us with them.
hi Mike - welcome to you and your family, and to your bundles of joy - Moon and Star. This forum is a great place for all things basenji. If you have questions, just ask away. There is a wealth of knowledge on here. Kudos for keeping them apart from one another until they are spayed and neutered. That must be quite the job!
