Hi, if you are from the Boise area, perhaps you should read this response from Art… I asked him why he was looking for basenjis, and this was his detailed response:
I was looking for someone who had puppies or wanted to breed, but that was over a year ago. I couldn't find anyone who lived near Meridian, Id. The closest one was in Oregon and that was a breeder and she wanted too much money for a puppy and at the time, I couldn't afford her price.
Now, I Just want to see if anyone else moved into our area that owned a basenji. There is a pet-park near our home here in Meridian that holds group parties every Saturday for different types of dog breeds. I have seen all kinds of breeds, but I have never seen anyone come with a Basenji, so I decided to place the ad on Craigslist to see if anyone would answer. That's the whole reason behind my ad, to try and find other people who love their Basenjis and who would like to meet other people that own basenjis and maybe would like to start a Basenji group, here in Meridian, ID.
Patty, the ad about the mom who lost her Basenji is the breeder I mentioned, her name is Rose Marie and she owns several female Basenjis. She and I have exchanged e-mails during the past year. She is the one who turn me on to registering my basenji in the www.pedigrees.zandebasenjis.com. My Benji King is now on that list.
I will look into the website you mentioned and see if I can find anyone from Meridian, ID.
P.S. The website I mentioned was this one. Art, if you stumble across this…. welcome! :)
