As I've said several times in different threads - Covid has brought out a plethora of would-be Basenji owners, not just in UK but across Europe.

We are starting to fear dogs being dumped into Rescue when lockdown is lifted and people return to work in offices , having realised there is far more to owning a Basenji than just the facts that they don't bark, are small and keep themselves clean like cats.

I have had well over 70 - probably 80 now the weekend's crop of enquiries has been dealt with per email and entered into my notes - and am at a loss to be able to tell them of a single breeder who doesn't already have a waiting list full to overflowing.

Anyone posting me privately will receive a detailed response but it won't carry too much hope for this winter.
