Breeders in Alberta, near Edmonton preferrably?


  • Hi! I'm seriously looking into buying a basenji, the breed looks like a perfect fit for me.

    The only breeder I can find in Alberta is Shamaron (shamaronbasenjis.com) who I have emailed to see if she has any available pups.

    Does anyone know of any basenji breeders in Alberta, more preferably nearer to Edmonton, though we are willing to drive a few hours outside.

    Thanks for any replies!


  • Hello Brianne,
    There are no breeders closer to Edmonton than Shamaron Basenjis. I would like you to know that over 14 years I have had 3 basenjis from Shamaron basenjis. All the dogs turned out to have fabulous temperments and lovely confirmation.

    With just a bit of research, the sire of the litter they have on their website shows that the sire or dam is not tested and comes from a Fanconi line on the bottom side through Changa Gala Celebration, with not only Fanconi but PRA eye problems in his offspring. Now, I can't say anything about the Dam of the litter, as I don't find the pedigree on Sally's pedigree site, but this kennel has produced a Fanconi Affected in Shamaron's Kofi Utundu and they have breed to lines with much known Fanconi.
