  1. she's too young to breed.
  2. get her spayed, enjoy your PET and don't add to the problem of poorly bred dogs.

Talk to your vet. She may not be drinking enough, she might have folds that aren't being cleaned causing bacteria to collect, could be a lot of things. But getting her to drink a lot helps. Add water to her food, put some flavoring in it to get her to drink more, make sure the water is fresh, etc. But most importantly, ask your vet.

How old is he?
I agree with eeeefarm on keeping busy. you can also smear a little peanut butter or cream cheese or canned dog food inside a kong, freeze it. Helped entertain them. Also work on desensitizing him.

Teach him no bark at home. Leave, some back the second he's quiet, praising GOOD NO BARK. Keep it up til longer and longer times. With toys, puzzles and safe chews, he should adjust.

Wow what a neat dog. Some basenji stubbornness, and climbing. Wisdom panel is pretty good though pricey for tell you what kind of dna is in there. Whatever she is, she's got spunk!

She is really cute though I don't see Basenji. Like Shirley said, only a DNA can tell you much for certain.

Purina isn't that great. With a dog with diarrhea, you need to put him on riced to firm up his stool. Bile usually is due to not eating often enough. Once a day won't do it, and in fact I feed my dog 2x a day with a snack midday and before bed.

Many if not most foods we can get are available in Canada.

You might also switch to fish based. Protein allergies are most common with poultry and beef.

Okay so I don't repeat myself over and over... please avoid puppymills/byb pages.
Go only to the the basenji club for a list of breeders, use this link""
http://basenjiclubofgb.org/breeders.php

Even THEN check out the breeders.

As for champdogs site... when a site allows anyone to post if they pay a fee, not a good source. If all you need is a fee and one health test to be approved to be a member, not a good site if you are looking for well bred dogs from responsible breeders.

Memtuka keeps protesting.. but this info is directly from her own pages. If she has more testing, then she lacks the professionalism to comprehend that people knowledgeable about breeding would never leave out tests, nor expect puppy buyers to look for further tests. As it is, it is woeful. As is her comment that she tests only if going to breed. A good breeder tests every single dog they produce and keep because they want to know what is in the line.

Really??? I don't know where you are getting your misinformation from. You seem to know who I am but continue to hide behind your moniker.
The stud dogs I used ARE health tested and as far as I am aware Champdogs is a reputable website.
May I suggest that you check your facts yet AGAIN and retract your libelous comments.<<

I am getting my info from YOUR OWN PAGES. So if your dogs are tested more than I wrote, may I suggest you correct YOUR PAGES which is where I got, and said I got, my info from. Libelous when it is your pages, that's pretty funny.

All anyone has to do is click on each of your dog's individual pages and see you list only the testing I said, with only the import with significant testing.

Too silly to even respond to the moniker comment.. from someone whose name here is "noodle". Most breeders here use their kennel or real names, btw.

As for info on your own pages.. members can simply click and verify.. or check screencaps below. I do hope if you actually have more testing, you will care enough about the image you are portraying of a breeder who has almost no health testing done on your first bitch, nor any listed for the studs of the litters. Lazy or impressively uninformed about the importance, I don't know.

2011 Litter:
YOUR PAGE: ... Absolutely doesn't say sire is tested,on either litters YOU LIST.. see screen cap below. Her "health tested" lists only Fanconi. You say PPM, but it isn't listed. Sadly, you act like that is BIG..but yet, it isn't. Your import has testing, so it isn't like you aren't aware how much needs to be done. But again, you only list Fanconi. No PRA, hip, thyroid, heart, nothing else.

Sire : Ch Zordia's Indiana Jones
Dam : Zordia's Kinyamkela ShCM (Health Tested)
Birth Date : 7th January 2011

Health Tests

Elsa's litter arrived in the early hours of 7th January. She had 4 very lively pups - 2 boys and 2 girls.<<

Next litter, the IMPORTED bitch, yep health testing. But your page says "DAM TESTED"... nothing about sire being tested. If he really is, your job to note them, not "libelous" on my part to say what YOUR PAGE says:

28th November 2015 - Basenji (Dam Health Tested)
As said before your IMPORT is tested :::Hi-Lite Bulldobas Wild Child of Memetuka ShCM (Imp Fin)

Sadly, the readers can click on each of your dogs to see the scant testing YOU listed:
