When I was growing up which was in the late 80s that is when I got to listen to stories about the basenji's from Africa my parents and grandparents had basenjis and so when the stories were told they never changed or got bigger into whoppers(fish tales) they stayed the same. Ive heard of them taking down hyenas and antelopes as well but it was always 2 parts to the hunts the flushing out and ended in Spears or flush out and a secondary unit of basenji's to take down a lion I don't know the full size but I know he had said it's part of a right of passage and if size was an issue look at the Tasmania devil and how it hunts and savages small doesn't mean weak. And by no means would I take my domestic pup on a hunt it's just the knowledge of knowing the raw potential and history of this breed...

All I know is Jack Shafer and Bob Mankey are a credible resource and wrote the book about how to raise and train basenji's. And even they talk about the hunting parties and the history as well as the successful ways to raise a basenji. As well as talk from the basenji university on the past and heritage. I just thought this would be a fun topic to talk about but it truly seems that at least in the text that there are many opinions that if not of the collective thoughts then itshe not accepted. Not sure how many posts I'll do from now on but it has been interesting ...

Here are just a few links that talk about the pigmy's using them for lion hunting parties besides small game.... I just know the friend that told me about his trip to Africa said they had basenjis for to herd them and some for the take down also.

I respectfully disagree with you they do hunt lions and they are capable and if you look at many creditable sources they also concur

i am not saying i want mine to personally go on a hunting party. but the idea that the potential is there is mind blowing... but yes they do use basenji's to hunt lions not just to flush them out. i remember my grandparents friends where they had been on lion hunts and they used basenjis to flush out and bring down lions. i was just wanting to see if there is any footage out there to watch also. i also know that a friend of the family had a basenji and another dog and he had foolishly showered affecction to the other dog more than the basenji. and he came home to the others dogs decapitated head in his bed at the works of basenji. so i know the aggression can be there and that they have the capabilities. i just havent found any hunting videos with basenjis. also i have tried jpeg on lowest resolution and it still errors on my posts.

Two fully trained basenji's can take down a full grown lion...

I know that they have hunting parties but I would love to see a hunt or something like that. I've triedone youtube and Google but I can't seem to find any close to the original purpose of owning a basenji. I'm not looking to to take mine on a hunt but when I talk to other dog owners who don't know much about basenji's and I talk about their heritage and origins they just don't seem to fully believe all the stories. So if anyone know where one can watch a natural geographic type hunt basenji's vs lions that would be great.![0_1486937334560_Screenshot_20170212-160819.png](Uploading 100%) and why can't I get pics uploaded on here without some kind of error and yes I cut down the size and resolution

It didn't seem puppy mill only had one sire and to one dam and a litter of 10. I haven't register her yet but I do have the papers that came with her for akc and the vet. I was going to pay to do a background pedigree on her but I was hoping to be able to do it myself. But thank you Debra
