@DebraDownSouth thank you....im heartbroken. Just picked up his paw print today from the vet so obviously I bawled like a baby as soon as I got in the car. It sounds like @eeeefarm s Perry had a similar issue to my Leo. Brothers but Leo was the small one in the litter and picked on by his siblings (according to Jan). He was the sweetest dog. Seems to be a trait a lot of Jan's pups have/had!
@eeeefarm unfortunately we just lost Leo on the 9th of this month. He was also an excellent dog. He did like tissues but thats all he would chew. We could leave him alone in the house uncrated and he wouldnt bother anything. They were amazing pups! We got Leo from Jan when he was about 14 weeks. I believe we met Perry while we were there meeting Leo for the first time but I cant be certain. I miss that dog like crazy.
@Nancy-Berry You make perfect sense! And I definitely want another Basenji in our lives. I have contacted Leo's breeder also and although she doesnt breed anymore she is close with another breeder who is planning on puppies soon and said she would recommend us. I sure hope that all works out. He has definitely filled my first chamber!!!
