About me

Hello I'm Becky! I am a registered vet tech from OH and have been owned by basenjis since 2003. I show my dogs but I am not a breeder.

I’ve worked with breeders that aren’t great with communication but this is crazy :(. If she cashed that deposit check that means she has a puppy for you and should be in contact.

Most of the breeders I know personally are in the Midwest.

Sure you can message me. You deserve to know if there is no puppy for you this year. Keeping you in limbo isn’t right. I’m hoping the breeder is still evaluating puppies and just hasn’t contacted everyone yet.

I’m sorry you are going though this. It’s so stressful waiting to know if there is a puppy for you.

A few things:
The breeder might just be busy with the puppies or their regular job\life. Puppies are a LOT of work! Not all breeders give constant updates either. Some post on Facebook a lot and some never do. Maybe look her up or her kennel on Facebook? also, if you are buying from a show breeder you need to understand that they have to wait until the puppies are old enough to evaluate before they pick home. They need to pick the best puppies to continue their program and might not be responding until they know for sure they have a puppy for you. I don’t know where you are on their waiting list but it could happen that they don’t have enough pups for the amount of people on their list.

I don’t know if I know the breeder but if she’s one who was recommended maybe try reaching out to the person who recommended them? They may know them personally and be able to contact them on your behalf.

Good luck ❤️. I’ve been in your daughters position. She will get her perfect puppy someday just like I did.

I saw Laurie a couple of weeks ago and she told me she would have kept them all if she could have! They are very nice and will do well once they are trained 👍

Laurie had 2 litters born then so I wasn’t sure! Laurie kept the rest of the litter. They are really nice 👍. Hopefully she will be a show dog.

I put the dogs name and my phone number. I once lost a tag (not the dog haha) and a kind man called me and brought the tag back. I don't think more than a number is necessary personally. My dogs are chipped before they leave the breeder.

Hi there! I live in CLE but I do go to dog shows in Columbus at the fair grounds. I think they are November and April? You are more than welcome to meet my dogs there! If you'd like to meet my boys let me know! Also, there are a ton of wonderful breeders in OH. Sue Kite (Klassic) is in Marion and Laurie Owen (Spring Willow) is in Akron. My parents got their little girl from Laurie and she was ALWAYS happy to have us come visit! There is also Tim Huff (Victory), Becky Blansett (Epic) and Tracy Leonard (Select) who are all great OH breeders. 🙂

Zande’s recommendation is spot on for a healthy dog who is simply picky. I cried myself to sleep many times over one of my dogs. I was convinced he was going to die! He’d like a food a few days and then stop. I mixed everything into it, tried raw (he hates it), tried every protein, every type of food, etc etc. Same results!!

The only thing that worked was finding a food he liked and I felt comfortable feeding and stuck with it. Yes he’d skip some meals but at 5 years old he now eats his food with very little issue. You REALLY have to practice tough love and sick to it. If your dog is healthy it WILL work!

For the record, I feed Fromm and rotate flavors. He does not do grain free as the good carbs help keep weight on him.
