I know, that Debbie breeds for health, and good temperment. You couldn't ask for a nicer lady, or a sweeter Baseji. My applaud to the Mata Hauri line!!!And, aren't these wonderful dogs, lucky, to have owners like us??? There is some 30+ homeless Basenis rescued from abuse here in Florida, some adults some puppies…My heart cries out, for loving homes, such as yours and mine. I moved to FL from Connecticut, and my B's have adjusted so well because of careful breeders, like Debbie. Janice
I got Zaharah from Debbie in 2006. She is the sweetest, kindest Basenji ever!! I am showing her now, a bit late, but she is doing some nice winning now, and although I have 2 others from different breeders, my B's have great temperments. I consider myself honored, to have one of the Mata Hauri exceptional wonderful Basenjis. Janice M
I got my girl, in 2006, from Debbi Hauri, at a Boston show. This brindle girl, is the sweetest,most loving, gentle animal in my household. I also have 2 other Zenjis, and they are also sweet…but my Mata Hauri girl, Zaharah, is the best temperment Basenji ever!! Consider yourself honored to have one of Debbie's dogs.., as I am honored to have this wonderful show girl. Janice
This line of Basejis is a high quality and carefully bred dog. If you are planning to show, this may be something you would consider. However, if you are looking for a good quality pet, all breeders produce puppies of non show quality, and can be purchased for a much lower price, and can be neutered, as a good house companion. Remember, that tempermant is of the utmost importance, and choose your puppy wisely.
I am a retired canine control officer.. In my State, this is completely against the law. Not only is this woman in line for a summons for allowing her dog off leash, but she is responisble for your vet bill costs!! Do not hesitate to call animal control and report this.. her dog was out of the owner's control, and she is liable for the damages incurred to your precious baby. Although large dogs need a dog park too, I know there are times specified in other States, where large dogs can play, and small dogs too but not at the same time, to prevent this sort of thing from happening. Why not suggest this to your town, so smaller dogs can be protected from this horror happening again. If I were you, I would be at City Hall, tomorrow, and making a complaint, then a suggestion for times for big and small dogs to enjoy the parks set aside for our loved fur ones. I have a big Doberman, and would never allow him to run free in a park with small dogs.. Heck, he cant run free in my home with my zenji puppy he would kill her..I am a very responsible owner, and accidents happen to all of us, but you have the right to enjoy the parks with your babies…without fear of being attacked. If the dog had bitten you, the owner could be sued and fined, and God knows you would win. Not sure how the law works there, but here, she is liable for your vet costs as well. I hope you get her big time, and the umbrella thing, is a great idea but a long riding crop is smart, too.Your poor little zenji is probably traumatized now, and just give her lots of love and huggs and keep her warm .. Give her kisses from Zaharah and Dale.. they send you all their love too. Janice
I have bred dobies for over 25 yrs and never had one come in season so quickly. I really cant see any swelling in her vulva, but her butt stick out just like a woman with a big booty.. it looks funny, but I guess she is in season.. she is so clean about this, I didnt think it woulod come so soon.. Oh, I am in for some havoc in my house..Trueman is not neutered, and he is bad with girls in heat..time to put him in the kennel poor guy..
She is on Iams puppy food, with a spoonful of canned mixed in, and I have her dieting, but she seems to still be chubby Her butt sticks out, I realize she is African, but the butt thing?? I have a sneaky suspicion, she is coming into heat.. Hey, she is only 5 1/2 mos old and thought they only come into season once a year, in the fall.. She looks very puffy the last 2 days..I am closely watching her maybe that is the attention thing all along
