I just wanted to give a small introduction as a new member to this forum. My name is Gilbert, I'm 23 and can't wait to own a besenji and bring him into my loving family. I live with my older brother and parents and we have all decided that its time to add a new member to the family.
About 3 years ago, my english bulldog (Gator) passed away due to cancer. We've had him for an amazing and joyful 10 years and was devastated when he died. This was particularly hard for me because I was Gator's primary owner and as such, had a special bond with him. After his death, I couldn't think of getting another dog because it was so difficult to part with Gator.
For the past year and a half, I have been thinking about a new dog and after much research, I find that a basenji would be perfect for my family and I. I understand that a bulldog and besenji have very different personalities, but from what I've read, a B would be the most ideal choice. Their playful, curious and independent nature is what I find delightful and they're handsome physique does not hurt as well.
I am currently looking for a red and white puppy (preferably in Ontario), I know that mating season isn't for another few months, but hoping to get one soon. I realize thats a different thread altogether and I'll start it in the appropriate forum.
Well this was supposed to be a "small" intro and I hope I didn't put anyone to sleep. Thanks for reading and I'm looking forward to interacting with everyone and keep learning through this website. Take care.
