@antigone said in Meeting a Basenji:
I would tell her to not get a Basenji as it a not a good idea. She can look for another Breed which may be more appropriate for her level of experience.

That's actually a bit of a presumptuous statement, you don't know anything about her level of experience. There was a time that I didn't know that much about Basenjis, I learned, we are now on our 6th and 7th. Yes, they can be a difficult breed, but that in itself is not necessarily a reason to tell someone not to get one.

There are a lot of Basenji Rescue And Transport (BRAT) members who live in that area. I'll check. I think there might be breeders too.

@mvdperez said in Basenji + ? other dog breeds ?:

*Wow. How do they survive in the heat? They must never grow their Winter coats, I am assuming?

The coat insulates both ways, it insulates against the sun too. Our Sibes would lay in the sun as much as the Basenjis would.The worst thing you could do for dogs like that is to shaved that coat off.

Oddly enough, here we are, closer to Africa and I have yet to see another Basenji. But we've met several Samoyeds!

When I was still breeding Siberian Huskies, I sold a pup to a family from Jerusalem who eventually moved back and took the Sibe back with them. They didn't consider it odd that they would have that type of a breed there, their neighbours back home always had a Keeshound.

My mix is just a little shorter, and there's a similar thread going on here right now. As I say in that one, only DNA can tell you.

Your best bet is to have her DNAed, it's impossible to guess. I got a dog from a California shelter, he looks similar to yours minus the black, but same ears and curly tail. He was listed as Basenji/Chihuahua. I had his DNA tested. Out of the 14 possible contributors in a 3 generation pedigree, they managed to pull out 2 Poms, a Maltese, and a GSP... no Basenji, no Chihuahua. That leaves 10 contributors unaccounted for, he's a quintessential street mix. I'm sure yours is the same, except from the beach!

Oh, definitely, BRAT is still very active. Currently, there is only one Basenji listed on their website, but I know that there are many in various stages of rehabilitation who aren't ready for adoption. There is one currently in foster in OR, and they're trying to get some information about a pair that are in an OR shelter at the moment. Not sure what's in CA at the moment, but rest assured, there's no shortage of rescues out there. Do you have a current application in with BRAT?

I love that DNA stuff.

No Basenji breeders right around Edmonton anymore. Closest is a breeder in Calgary. Most of the Basenjis around here recently have been coming from Beaubri kennels in Mission, BC. She breeds nice Basenjis.

Fill out a rehome form for Basenji Rescue And Transport https://www.basenjirescue.org/PostDog.asp. They could help you out, this is a very good rescue organisation.

I had a male Basenji that peed like a horse until the day he died at 15 and a half. No matter where he was. And it was kinda nice having a male that wouldn't hike his leg to piss all over things, never marked anything either. Don't complain if your boy doesn't hike to pee.

On the other hand, I had 2 Siberian Husky bitches who were TERRIBLE markers, always tried to get it as high as they could. They were both spayed too. One passed away a few years ago, still have the other, and she never marks anymore.

There is another Basenji on CL who is also from a GA breeder: https://louisville.craigslist.org/pet/d/purebred-basenji-pup/6625622891.html The owner is asking $400, sez he paid $800. BRAT knows about both dogs, but they won't pay a large fee.

Craigslist is NOT the place to buy a puppy. There is a probable scam happening on Craigslist right now regarding the sale of Basenji puppies. It is going on across the country, some ads have been removed, but new ones go up; currently there are ads in CA, CO, NM, OH, and FL. All ads have various titles, pictures, and reply-to email address, yet every reply I've gotten back is from: Suzan Lake <suzannlake@gmail.com and she sends the same group of 15 pictures.

She is giving away the pups, but she wants you to send $$ for airflight for them from Philadelphia. I smell scam, and there can't possibly be that number of litters available right now!

Thanks guys. they're both cuties, and at least they are someplace safe. It probably won't take them too long to find homes.

Could you tell me which shelter she is in, and what city/state? I do not think that she's a purebred, but I am one of BRAT's Basenji mix coordinators. Thanks

Kiki is a 10 year old, 30 pound Basenji mix who will be losing the only home she has ever known on June 22. She is spayed, healthy and up to date with vaccinations. There is a picture and more information, as well as a contact email on BRAT's Basenji mix adoption site: https://basenjirescue.org/dogs-mixes/default.asp She is in Los Angeles, CA, and needs a home to go to.
