Hi. Fellow Ontario basenji owner here. Once you get to know basenji's and all their quirks you won't look at other dogs the same way. You are smart to go to some shows to meet with breeders and learn more about the breed. That way you can also find a breeder you're comfortable with. If you have questions you can always reach out to me. Depending where you are we might be able to meet up. Robin

Our B girl Sophie turned 14 in Nov. People always ask if she's a puppy. She still jumps up on the back of the couch to sleep in her favourite spot. No signs of her slowing down!

There is no scientific evidence that CBD oil works for pets and most veterinary associations are not embracing it, at this point. As such there aren't regulations regarding dosages. As well, if you are using CBD oil please ensure there is no THC.

Basenji's can be obsessive about grooming especially their paws. Gotta keep the white socks clean. 😃 As long as they're not causing interdigital irritation or pulling out hair it should be fine.

She is a cutie but not sure about the basenji aspect based on her colouring, ears, tail and coat. I'm seeing some lab in her but as was mentioned a dna test is the best idea. All that said she looks like a real sweetheart and deserves all the belly rubs!!

My purebred basenji girl loves to cuddle with her head stuffed in my underarm. No worries, they'll surface if they need air.

So because you possibly can't get a basenji this year, a year during which you're getting married an already stressful situation, you're looking at potentially having a dog shipped overseas? Are you paying for it have its own seat? Anyone who truly cares about their dog would not ship it in cargo especially overseas. Please do not get a dog this year or until you've settled into your marriage. One major life change at a time!

@debradownsouth - Just an fyi, the vet did try everything possible with this dog but nothing worked and ultimately it was the owners choice to euthanize not ours. Unfortunately, we are bound by what our clients wishes are and what they can afford.

Can I ask what brought you to feel basenji's would be for you? Have you been around them? I certainly love my b's but generally don't recommend them for most people especially if you work long hours. Basenji's are trainable but aren't like golden's who come when called. Basenji's take a message unless there's something in it for them.😁

Not a great idea to feed 'people' food. They will come to expect it and won't eat what they're supposed t. As for raw food, please don't. Unless you go to a reputable butcher, not grocery store, you can run into parasitic issues. I work for a vet and our hearts broke when we had to euthanize a 3 yr old who had chronic diarrhoeas due to raw diet. Best to put food down, 10 mins then pick it up. A healthy dog won't starve themselves.
