I am assuming vet,has,checked,for parvo. But besides that who sold you a 9 week old puppy. This little creature is vulnerable to many many problems, physical and mental. Probably doesn't even know it is a dog yet. Ohhhh i get so perturbed ....who is the breeder, have you spoken to them. Continue to post . Someone is bound to know something about this symptom.
Dont leave....you will be loosing the best place for good info. The old adage about one rotten apple in a barrel does not apply. May i suggest you simply delete the person who has offended you.don't bother to read any messages from anyone who wishes to cause you concern. The problem with those folks is they think unkindly about themselves and some how being Unkind. Makes them feel superior to others. You will be needing advice from others with your new love for
our breed is different in so many ways. How rewarding to have found a bit of trust. There will be more milestones to be celebrated. Good luck.
Many years ago, at a dog show i had three bitches in costume their costumes were cookies. An oreo, a chocolate chip and plain cookie. I was dressed as a carton of milk and wore a sign that said. Got milk, which was a famous commercial at the time. The girls did not care for costumes and .".." quit half way through the parade. Cookies all over the place . Funny memories none the less.
If you look very closely, there seems to be an eye witness. I suggest you question him/her very carefully. Do not fall for the phony excuse of “ I saw a burglar in here and he was carrying away your favorite pillow. I tried to grab it out of his hands and we had a terrible scuffle. He was strong and huge but I hung on, endangering my life to secure your property. I snatched and yanked and pulled and finally he released the pillow. Honest Mom that is what happened. “. These eye witnesses’ are not altogether truthful or honest. Same thing happened at our house and it is the same old story. The mystery remains unsolved.
This is going to be hard to decribe but worked for us. A very large stretchy sock. Slide it over her head and mark where her legs would go. Cut ,Just slits will do. Poke her legs through . Roll it back to a collar, fold it back to make a collar. Cut it off at about the third nipple and if you can make sense of what i just said you should be good to go. Needless to say, it is a 24/7 job. You could also use a light weight sweater sleeve to do the same job.
Forgot to mention to those folks whose basenjis catch and kill rabbits and squirrels . Or any wild prey for that matter. When they kill or seriously injure something. Fleas jump from victim to dog. In 30 yrs we have had only one instance of fleas. One girl killed a bunny in her yard. I removed corpse immediately as i saw it happen. Picked up bitch and she was loaded with fleas for the first time in her life. Thank goodness fleas show up on basenjis very obviously. She was not allowed in the house until hubby ran down to pet store and bought appropriate flea shampoo. She was bathed outside, dried outside and then sat on my lap upside down ..she thought it was for a belly rub.....i was looking for a stray flea that had escaped having a bath. Found nothing...they did not have time to lay eggs so we were comfortable that we had solved the problem.
