Oh, that's great. Good to know the pups will be looked after by a family member. Where does your cousin live? It might be that there are other breeders nearby who would like to visit the pups and help your cousin. Is your cousin experienced with Basenjis? What will happen to the pups if they are not sold? Will your cousin keep them him/herself?

Why are the puppies coming to the UK to be sold? Who is bringing the litter here? And, who will be looking after them until they are sold? There are already more puppies than potential owners in the UK.

Hi Kiwir
I'm sure Mary at Equafleece would send stuff out pretty quick. I always buy mine at shows so not too sure about postal times. Give them an email and ask. My dogs have at least 4 of these jumpers each in all sorts of styles and colours. I wouldn't buy any other jumpers for them 🙂
I should say I also have a jumper chewer. He hates having 'legs' so I just make sure I get him the jumpers without legs on.

Most Basenjis are born in Nov and Dec and I think all female Basenji pups from last years litters have been accounted for. You could try emailing the secretaries from the UK breed clubs as they usually have a list of litters and can help to match up potential owners. Make sure you do your homework on the breed and the breeders and try to visit a breeder or two so you can spend some time with Basenjis before you make a final decision. Basenjis are not like most breeds of dogs and can be a challenge. Good luck with your search.

LOL we call them 'Furry Knickers' 😃

Mine have always only taken 6 - 7 days to arrive in the UK. The last lot I received and sent back went missing somewhere in the Atlantic so a new kit was sent out. That took 6 days to arrive also but this time I have paid for the postal tracking service. Two weeks sounds a long time especially within the USA.

I too have a dog who cannot tolerate crates. It does make some aspects of life difficult for us since we are a multi-dog household but we have found other ways around it. Trouper prefers to sleep on the sofa at night so that is just fine, we can trust him not to chew etc. My other dogs are all perfectly happy in their crates and I am working on training my pups who are now 9 wks old. There is a DVD called Crate Games you can get. I believe you can also see some of this DVD on Youtube.
Good luck with your pup.

Fabulous piccies. I just love the Pods and recently attended a seminar in the UK run by Carla Molinari. My friend has a Pequeno which I sometimes show for her. One day we'd like to import a Grande (or maybe Medio) from Portugal although only the Pequeno is recognised in the UK.

I am sorry to hear about your friend's trouble, but like you said yourself, potential puppy owners will be thoroughly vetted. And as you have emailed me looking for info about my pups, I too have thoroughly checked you out. All my puppies leave here with all endorsements so I am afraid that rules me out too.
I wish you luck in your search for a Basenji pup.

Why do you want a Basenji?

Brilliant article. I think judges should have a good read of this. Breeders too could benefit from reading it and thinking about their choices of stud dogs, where they buy puppies from etc etc. Afterall, winning in the ring is not what the Basenji was designed to do and no number of CCs or equivilent will save the breed in the long run.

Sorry to hear about your stripey wonderkid! I can't offer much help except, my elderly GSD has poor liver values and we give her Milk Thistle tablets every day. Even my conventional vet recommends Milk Thistle. As it is a natural remedy, I'm sure it can't do too much harm to try out. Hugs to you and Digital. 🙂

Isn't the reason the likes of the Sloughi and Azawakh are so thin, something to do with the way they store (or not store) fat?? I have a friend who breeds Salukis and I'm sure she told me this.

I think I know!!! I think it's Dutch - Abotere's Zahir for Hicel. Oh dear, I speak to this dog at every show :o

I have a few items with this image - door mats, stickers, postcards etc. Can anyone tell me the name of the dog used?

Wonderful pics. I just ADORE Azawakhs but my OH won't allow me to have one as he says 'They are all ribs and bollocks!'
I've made friends with a few owners so I can still get my Azawakh fix 🙂

I am glad she is with you and that you are looking for a responsible, experienced home. Too many people would just give the dog away to the first person that came along. Unfortunately, I can't think of anyone off hand who would be interested but I'll certainly have a good think. You never know, maybe you will fall in love with her and be unable to part with her - Basenjis sure get under your skin 😉

We used to buy white chocolate mice for our cat - he loved to suck them til they melted 🙂

I LOVE white chocolate so not sure I would share any with my dogs 😃

Who is her breeder? They really should be the first port of call as most (almost all) UK breeders will take back any dogs at anytime of their lives.

She looks a lovely girl. I hope she finds a good (and preferably experienced) forever home soon.
