I am looking to get a basenji in Christmas season. I have contacted a lot of breeders and many have been tons of help. I understand it is up to nature. I was just wondering if it is likely that a puppy can be 8 weeks old by December 25th. I searched on world dog finder and found an add for a puppy. She said I could be put on the list and it could be possible to have them ready by then. Is this because it gets colder there faster? Also if any breeders are able to let me know if they usually have a litter ready by then please let me know. Just wondering if I should continue looking for basenjis internationally?
