But not new to Basenjis.
We recently lost our long-time companion of 15 years, Maxx, a tri-color Basenji (he was our second). I've created an album on this site with a few pictures. I also created a memorial blog for Maxx, but after reading the Rules, I guess I can't post the URL…if interested, you can PM me.
We are looking for another Basenji, either a puppy or well-socialized young adult (sex and color irrelavant) as a companion. We want to buy from a reputable breeder who does all the necessary health testing (Fanconi, OFA, CERF, etc.). Any referrals would be appreciated...we live in Washington State and winter in Arizona, so would like to stick with breeders in either state, or along the route south. We'd like to visit the breeder to pick up a dog rather than having him or her shipped.
Maxx was a wonderful companion...he loved people, most other dogs, and wasn't destructive, even when left alone inside the house or RV. He was crate trained and went to puppy kindergarten, so perhaps that explains it.
