We normally sell our puppies here in Idaho but this year we have four left. All of our puppies are sold with full AKC right (breeding, show ect.) We sell all our puppies at a reduced price because we are not trying to make money off our dogs just helping out a breed of dogs that we love. All our puppies are top quality and raised in our house with our six basenjis. In return for selling them at such a low price all we ask in return is that our puppies/dogs never end up in the pound, we will take them back at anytime at no shipping costs to you. Normally we test our puppies for Fanconi Syndrome but this year due to me working in Alaska and my wife being in Thailand, this batch of puppies are untested. Last year?s litter was 50/50.

Sad.

There is a Tammie's Tippy Tigress in Sally's pedigree database. Listed as Fanconi carrier so that's probably the dam.

Simba The Basenji King was born Dec 13 2008. The OFA age in the database is always in months, not years, so he was 6 months old when tested for Fanconi.

Are you sure your "black and whites" are not actually black, brindle, and whites sometimes referred to as trindles? You cannot have black and whites without a black parent.

Duh, Robyn. Thanks. My brain was definitely not working last night! Sigh.

Did I read it correctly that these puppies have NOT been tested for Fanconi?

Looking at the pic of your "black and white" puppy, I can say with certainty it is definately NOT and black and white. It is hard to tell from the pictures if it is a black, brindle, and white or a black, tan, and white though I think black, brindle, and white. As a breeder, you should be familiar with common basenji colors.

Looks like the puppies have not been tested but the parents have.

If the sire is clear, the pups could be carriers.

Normally we test our puppies for Fanconi Syndrome but this year due to me working in Alaska and my wife being in Thailand, this batch of puppies are untested. Last year?s litter was 50/50. <<

This "batch".. they aren't cookies btw. And actually your comment is a lie.. last year's "batch" (from your then only one year old stud), had FOUR positive and 2 probably clear… 4/6 is not 50 percent, it is 66.67 percent.
EDITED NOTE: positive, as in CARRIERS… should be obvious since I listed the actual test results below but to avoid more confusion.

Debbie, what do you mean by not breeding to produce pets? Aren't they all pets 🙂 ? I mean, breeding with disregard for the standard would be counter productive, but so would breeding for disregard for temperament, health, or other any other good "pet" traits.

I think what Debra means, is that every litter produces pets but breeding simply to sell pet puppies is not beneficial to the breed especially when rescue has so many young dogs that need homes.

Responsible breeding means a lot more than simply taking to fanconi tested dogs and having puppies. These puppies should have been spoken for before the breeding ever took place.

I love the puppy on last picture 🙂

I agree. It seems sometime people on forums tend to get riled quickly. I'd like to give this breeder the benefit of the doubt. However, the fact that they have 4 pups "left over" leads me to believe they didn't have a waiting list or anything like that.

I don't have a B yet, but i've been on the list for about 5 months on a pup from a litter that was born on the 29th of December. One of the many reasons I this breed was that its rarity usually leads to a high percentage of responsible breeding. Or at least thats been my experience.

That's not a black/white, it's a trindle (black, brindle, and white).

they have these pups advertised on another site domesticsale

http://www.domesticsale.com/Classifieds/410068.html

nothing about testing mentioned in this ad

I meant positive carriers. As I actually STATED, since the the sire/dam are a probably clear and a carrier, the pups won't HAVE fanconi.

And yes, I meant breeding to have puppies to sell for pets. Breeding should be to improve the breed, to enhance it. Not to be a business producing "batches" of puppies in order to make money selling them.

Sadly, that "higher percent" of responsible breeding is starting to fade… hence the flood of dogs into rescue with several dozen from one place in FL and the person having many more churning out in his other location still. 😞

Nor did I have to give the person benefit of doubt or guess... the testing and lack there of, the proof that he bred his stud before it was a year old, that the ONLY test was fanconi, that the sire/dam and behind it almost no testing (one had hips I think), no titles... right there on OFA site. We won't even get into not knowing coat colors. People should not even think about breeding til they know the genetics of the breed they are considering. Dear spirits, I am VERY good on Rottie genetics, and I wouldn't even call my self a neophyte with Basenji, and even I understand bare basics of Basenjis coat colors.

And in fact, more bad stuff... the sire and dam of Tippy are BOTH CARRIERS... That part of her pups not carriers is good news for her.

A responsible breeder would also be registering them correctly.
The PP are correct… you cannot get a black/white without breeding to one and there is clearly tan cheek markings on your "black/white" therefore it is not a black/white.

I did not see any other health testing on your sire/dam... so do you know what issues could be passed down with these breedings?

I may get lambasted because of what I'm going to say, but if so, so be it.

1. There's a section here called "For Sale", with a specific format to present your information. That format was followed.

2. People are allowed to sell basenjis on other websites.

I hope people who have already posted would re-read their posts. Several people comment that "A responsible breeder", inferring that this person is NOT a responsible breeder. I don't think that's fair. We don't "know" this person, and yes, there are several breeders on here that I feel that I know, because they post often, and I sincerely respect their opinions. They truly help all of us petowners to understand different aspects of basenji health that we probably didn't know when we purchased our first basenji. Or rescued the ensuing second, third, and fourth basenji. 🙂

I appreciate when people ask questions about the dog's pedigree, or post health-related concerns, because as I read this, I understand the breed better.

These beautiful puppies are for sale, which was the first post of this thread. This person did not ask for astronomical amounts of money. Yes, I would call a litter of puppies a "batch" too, lol… no harm, no foul. I mis-speak all of the time... if you look, most of my posts are edited. 🙂

I've only been around basenjis for 8 years, but I've read that back in the 80s/90s, the breed was being riddled with health-related issues due to the genetic pool in the USA being too small, which is why people went to Africa to get "fresh blood", so to speak. So to make a general statement that there are too many basenji breeders in the USA is not fair, in my opinion. To say that breeding should not be continued because there are too many dogs in rescue is unrealistic, in my opinion... and the truth is that basenjis are in a rescue situation because of irresponsible PEOPLE… not necessarily because of irresponsible breeders.

While I have no idea who this breeder is, neither does anyone else on this forum. This person is new, and if we ever want to expand "our" gene pool and get "fresh blood" on here, then I respectfully request that we don't come to judgement of this person based upon two or three posts. This person is NOT James Holland, but appears to be from a family that loves the breed and bred two AKC basenjis. That is not a crime in itself. Not understanding the difference between black and white and a trindle isn't a crime, nor does it make one irresponsible. (I had never heard of the term before either!).
