I signed up for this forum membership about a year ago when I thought I might have aquired a basenji mix, which was supposed to actually be a Decker Terrier but her (Ziva's) behaviors brought me to this forum. I am still not completely convinced Ziva is a full Decker Terrier as she is almost 1 1/2 and is only 18 lbs. She does have many basenji characteristics and behaviours.
Nevertheless, after almost a year of bonding with Ziva, I wanted to get her a companion and after much research and education (a lot of which I learned from this forum - Thank you!), I decided on a basenji.
We welcomed our new family member, Zoe, on 1/27 (she is 4 months now) and we are all just head over heels for her. They play so well together, most of the time They entertain each other alot! We are still working on the potty training We are looking forward to all of our future basenji adventures
Without further ado, meet my Ziva (red) and Zoe (b&w)
She is beautiful! She looks like a Decker Terrier to me. They can range from 25 - 40 lbs. Google "Decker Terrier tri color" and look at the images tab, I think you will be suprised. If you read the history of Decker Terriers you will find there is some basenji in there mix.
I use this site for dog food quality, content and recalls. Not sure on how long FDA takes.
