Could anyone point me in the right direction for getting a basenji in the UK

posted in Basenjis For Sale or Wanted read more

I had only had him about 3 months and he was already 2 years when I got him. I rushed into it because I was desperate for a dog and he was a beauty. He was very docile and was no signs of aggression towards me in the time I had him. He snapped at 2 of my friends but I had put that down to the human behaviour (1 teased him with food and the other got too close too quickly). I was lying on the floor with him running his side and belly when he suddenly turned on me and attacked me for about 6/7 seconds. It was a terrifying experience. He bit me on the head, arm, and back. After the ordeal the dog resumed to normal behaviour but I was too afraid to keep him after that. I'm not sure what set him off maybe I rubbed him up the wrong way. I still miss him so am now looking for a new (safer) companion.

Mind you I did not give up the Malinois due to laziness or anything like that, I'm a very active person with lots of free time. it was all goin well until the dog turned on me and attacked me, at that point I was forced to give him to a friend who has experience with and space for the breed

Hello there, I joined this community forum because I am looking for a basenji breeder in Ireland or the UK. I have been searching for a new dog since I was forced to give up my Belgian Malinois as it was too dangerous to keep in an apartment. I have been looking online for a smaller breed that would suit my circumstances and I think a basenji is perfect. However I have been unable to find any breeders anywhere. If anyone can point me in the right direction or give me advice it would be hugely appreciated.

Thank you
Hopeful basenji owner
Michael
