@giza1 Thank you so much for your reply do you have any experience with the medicine Vetoquinol for male dogs?

No, sorry, I do not.

You can guess and guess all day, and even have the "professionals" chime in, but unless you do a DNA test, you'll never really know.

I have had a few female dogs on Stilbestral (sp) for leaking urine. Very common in older, spayed bitches; the pill worked great and they would eventually need 1 about every 4-5 days.
Might work for males too.

Well. I don't think that she is Basenji. First time I glanced at her picture I thought "Great Dane", but I think she is too small to be a Dane. She is cute though, I like her look. Interested to know what DNA sez.

If you make the effort to crate train her properly, she could learn to love the crate. Then she should be able to happily stay there with a chew toy for a couple of hours.

When you are talking about the height of a dog, the measurement is taken from the floor to the "withers" (top of the shoulder blades), kind of his back just at the base of his neck. The average male Basenji should be 17 inches there.
Moose is a cool looking dog, might have some Basenji there. What does he think of the rain? Most Basenjis hate it.

Y'know, I really don't think I have any pictures of just her in the bag, I'd have to look. Those were in the days before cell phones. I have pictures of her on the bike.

@giza1 said in Podcast about basenjis:

Our Giza rode across Canada on a motorcycle when she was 9 months old.

How did you manage that? What kind of carrier did you have her in? And how did you teach Giza not to jump off?

I had her in an over-the-shoulder type of bag that zipped closed along the top, and had a hole in one end for a dog to stick its head out; she rode between my husband and myself. I'd trained her to lay in the bag, and we'd stop every couple hours so she could stretch her legs. She wore a bandana and had goggles on, she was a great little biker!

Interesting fact; the first time that we rode across the county I had mothers pull their children away from me, we were bad bikers after all. The second time we rode across - same people, same leathers, same bike - we had a dog with us and people couldn't wait to talk to us! What a difference a little dog made.

Ha. When our Giza did something exasperating, we would always say, "Giz Louise"! Our Giza rode across Canada on a motorcycle when she was 9 months old. She lived to be 18.

You have a Basenji named Giza?! My very first Basenji I named Giza, and I've never heard of another one with that name because I thought it was so perfectly Basenji. I am a bit surprised that there weren't more with that name.

Our dogs will never see the inside of a dog park.
A dog park sounds great, but in reality...

I had one rescue Basenji whose eyes were teary but they weren't bothersome to her. We have a fake Basenji now whose eyes are teary due to clogged tear ducts, the vet has unclogged them but they just clog up again. Doesn't seem to bother him. There used to be a product that you could sprinkle on their food every once in a while to prevent staining and it worked . But it was banned.

I understand, but you do have to realise that 17 is a fantastic age for a dog to get to regardless of breed. Many Basenjis get to that age.

Vet's don't actually do breed identification DNA themselves, you have to get a kit yourself - Wisdom Panel or Embark - then send it in. I've used Wisdom Panel panel a few times, cost about $80 5 years ago. Embark is more expensive.

Oh good. The BRAT Enzo? I was the one to come across Enzo the first time. They didn't want any help from us in the first place, then I think we found him again.
