Arlene, the Basenji Brats with the Boxenji!(images/smilies/biggrin.png "Big Grin")
I'm with kjdonkers, try the Healing Touch for Animals. You may want to try a chiropractor as well. Sounds dumb, but if a nerve is placed wrong, they may be able to help. and yes, I am a breeder, I've had very limited experience with seizures though.
Where in NY are you from. There are breeders in NY. 8 weeks is way, way too young. And Pat is right about the Fanconi, who has been DNA tested?
Agilebasenji is also correct in that living away from them, it probably will not be 'your' dog. And, unless it's your parents wanting the dog, it's not fair to them either.
Some basenji's shed more than others and some are more vocal than others. I have some that are very, very vocal and then I have some who don't utter anything. Just depends.
Allergies are not usually a problem.
Robyn is near Atlanta, GA and will be going to New Smyrna, with side trips to Orlando, and surrounding area. I've travelled extensively through the US, especially FL, so am familiar with a lot of places down there. Strangely enough, I've never been to New Smyrna though! Been down through the keys (which I hated, so commercialized, reminded me of Niagara Falls, On, CA) and all the way up through the middle with side trips down the coasts.
Ahh, thanks for the encouragement. Sometimes that's the way the cookie crumbles. You just never know what to expect. The vet's receptionist asked me if I was done with breeding after Zina. I told her no, life happens. Zina wasn't supposed to live in the first place.
