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

In case this info is helpful, I got a retired male show dog at 18 months old for $1100 (Virginia area) and the breeder's puppies go for $1300.

@DebraDownSouth Thanks! Would you mind posting the links? I'd be interested in reading them.

@tanza Thank you! He started howling mournfully in October and I think it is because he know it is breeding season...

Hello! We are scheduling Lincoln for his neuter surgery soon (he will be 2 in February, and was kept intact for showing/breeding purposes by his breeder). All my previous male dogs were neutered at a much younger age. What should I expect after the surgery? Will he have any changes in personality or behavior?

@Cafu That's awesome you also have a Marjani boy! Are you located in the DC area? Do you know which of Julie's dogs are his parents? My boy is from Penny and Fubu.

Lincoln will be 2 in February and hasn't shown any aggression in the dog park (but he is closely monitored). He doesn't seem to have many of the typical basenji traits, which we were not expecting. He has a dog walker that he loves and goes to daycare with her once a week. He is a very sweet, sensitive, and cuddly boy. I really think Julie does a great job of breeding for temperament, because Lincoln has the best personality!

Not new to the forum, but I felt Lincoln deserved an introductory post as he has now arrived home!!

Born Feb. 2016 (he is almost 1 year 7 months old)
Shares his birthday with President Abraham Lincoln
AKC Champion (now retired)
27 lbs, 17.5 inches tall

His favorite things to do are: nap for hours under a warm blanket; watch me from another room by swiveling his head around 180 degrees; running around in circles when he is antsy; and sprinting at full speed around the park.0_1504559041860_Lincoln cave bed 9-4-17.jpg

@DebraDownSouth I'm coming home for my lunch hour each day. We just moved to a new apartment very close to my work - so that I can give him enough exercise during the workday. I'll post some more photos!!!

Happy update: Lincoln arrived home 3 days ago and seems to be adjusting well. He's a little timid in the city environment since he has not been exposed a lot of the loud noises. He's gradually getting used to getting affection from us and seeks out cuddles on the couch. I go back to work tomorrow and am so nervous about leaving him alone (I think I have separation anxiety myself, LOL)...
