Registration papers should be proof, but without DNA confirmation one can never be positive. I know a breeder (in another breed) who was getting old and a bit confused and I am sure some of her pups' parents were not accurately attributed, but the pups were purebred, just possibly from different sire. Coat colour can vary tremendously and it's more likely when it isn't a disqualification in the breed. If you are buying a dog described as purebred then there should be registration papers given to you. A DNA test should tell you whether the dog is Basenji or mixed with something else, if you really want to know.
Adopted B Arriving Soon

Hello, Our adopted B from BRAT, Jojo, is arriving tomorrow (Sunday) if all goes as planned. We are excited and have learned much from reading your posts. After Jojo settles in a bit we will post some pics of her. She had her thyroid tested recently by BRAT and she does have hypothyroidism but is on her meds. She is apparently shedding pretty bad right now but Paula, from BRAT, thinks it will improve as the meds build up in her blood stream. I understand that hypothyroidism is not uncommen in Bs? Jojo is our first B and we are looking forward to adding this special breed and girl to our family.
