My name is Dana K and we have to wonderful Basenji's. A red girl named Moto Fopaw's Ayanna Anaya but known to all of us who love her as Blossom, and a tri boy named Trey Nkechi Olujimi, known to all who love him as Trey. We would be lost without them! Blossom is 6 and came to us first from a wonderful breeder. Trey is 5 and was a rescue we received through another wonderful breeder. We had a basenji 42 years ago when we were just young married's and loved him dearly. So all these years later we have them again. I must say it has been much easier this second time when we already knew what to expect from Basenjis. Trey has separation anxiety but is gradually getting better. Blossom just gets her nose out of joint that she is not the one and only Basenji now! (We had a minature dachshund when we got her at about 3 months old I think!) For a while she thought she was a dachshund! We would be lost without our basenji children.

We. too, have a Basenji rescue male and a female we have had for six years. We got the male about 2 years ago. It isn't so much that he bullies our female as he just bosses her around. She will be laying on the couch and he will come sit in front of her and stare at her until she snarks at him and gets up and moves, whereupon he takes her place. Any suggestions?

Well, my rescue one - the tri boy doesn't like a crate AT ALL. He will do it, but he mopes. My red girl was fine with crates when we got her because the breeder trained her great! However, we have spoiled her rotten and now she hates them and will sulk for days if she had to stay in one.
