Doing rescue, my concern is that folks are buying dogs they think are "basenjis" and in fact they are have not been approved for this breed.
Rose Marie, you are breeding african village dogs. You might breed them with basenjis, but then they are mixes. No matter what you decide to call these dogs, they are not approved by any BCOA board, and are NOT basenjis. If you decided to breed and sell african village dogs, then NO one could take issue with you..because your calling these puppies what they are. Why do you need to do this??
First, If my dogs are African Village dogs so is yours. You dont have any room to speak here.
Second, I am tired of repeating myself, but here goes:
Apollo is UKC. Others have been approved by the UKC and registration is pending getting my act together.
Third, what should I call them in the ads? The ads have specific categories. If I wanted an African basenji, registered or not, I would look under Basenji. And I would be interested in them if I didnt already have them
Fourth, are you saying that all AKC nonregistered basenjis arent basenjis?
Fifth, and MOST important, my BUYERS know EVERYTHING about their purchase. No one else needs to at this time. If I thought for one minute they would listen, i would tell everyone, but as my having to repeat and repeat this stuff, it doesnt matter how often I say it. so I stopped.
