Hello from Washington, DC! My husband and I are adding a young male basenji to our household later in 2017.

Happy update - this little dude just got his championship this past weekend. Here he is looking adorable ringside!

Does this puppy look like a basenji mix to you? I would like to contact the owner to let her know about BRAT, but I wanted to get people's opinions on whether she looks like a basenji. I thought the shape of her head and her markings were very similar.

In regards to giza1's post - I'm originally from Ohio so I had to look this up... Can't believe there is a retired show dog on Craigslist...

@Kebasmom Yes! :) Where do you know him from?

@wizard He was smiling the whole time we were with him. He loves people - his tail goes crazy when he sees someone coming. He also gives lots of kisses!

@tanza thank you!! The breeder says she has never seen him mark while she has him walking around at dog shows, but who knows what he will do in a home setting. We will be getting him neutered after we take him home.

Is it true that intact males generally do not do well with other males? The breeder says he gets along well with females.

@tanza It doesn't seem like he has house time, but I can't say for sure. He is okay hanging out in his crate because he has to be in there when traveling for shows. He is not housebroken. But he is very food-motivated so that will help when training.

@tanza His breeder is Marjani Basenji in Purcellville, Virginia (Julie Hartigan). He is Fanconi clear and PRA normal. 0_1492438034316_Pedigree 04-17-17.png

Thanks you guys!! Since we have a couple months before he comes home, does anyone have any book recommendations on training basenjis? He has never lived in a house before, but he does have basic manners because he is used to being shown.
I guess the one thing we are nervous about is him adjusting from kennel life to home life. Right now he has a kennel with a large open dog run for him to run in. He is very energetic so I want to make sure to meet his energy needs!
