That's for posting as it is always exciting to see basenjis and basenji-ish dogs from Africa.

I lived in West Africa in the 70s and many of the local dogs looked like basenjis to some degree. I had one I named Joe who was larger that Bs here but otherwise looked like a basenji. Joe was a great watchdog for other dogs but liked almost all people he met.

It is hard seeing dogs and other animals who live among people who have so little as life is tough for all. In my village (I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Segbwema, Sierra Leone) people did not have clean water or electricity and very little health care. In the hungry season (when the rains first came in July-Sept) food was very short and people died from malnutrition and hunger, especially young children. So the dogs had for the most part to fend for themselves and most had worms and skin disorders.

I have been reading about dogs and cats being rescued from Iraq and Afghanistan and am impressed with how far people will go to save animals. Let's hear it for the human spirit!

I took two basenjis to the Philippines back in 1986 when we moved there (my husband works for the Dept of Defense). And brought them back three years later.

Binta and Cheka were young and healthy and did just fine. We had to get a Dept of Agriculture certificate and since my husband was already there we knew the exact procedures they would go through at the airport in Manila. I was on the plane with them (they were in cargo of courses) and it was the longest 24 hr flight I have ever taken (I go to Asia a couple of times a year). I fixed water bottles to their crates which they had used since they were puppies.

After we left the Manila airport we spent Christmas in the Philippine Plaza Hotel (4 stars) with them and then went on to Olangapo.

We did it then as we loved them too much to leave them behind and the Bs enjoyed the Philippines – parrots and monkeys in the backyard and on walks we would see monitor lizards and all sorts of tropical birds. Plus we had an American vet on the base.

Glad I don't have to do it again, however. I did fly my two Aby boys down to Naples with me in a carrier under the seat this January as we still want the animals with us when vacation as much as possible.

Basenjis have some of nature's best creative minds. Most of us have been surprised with how they figure things out to get to what they want. Personally I would never have such a prey-driven basenji in a house with cats.

Over 40 years of having basenjis we have seen them catch and kill many squirrels, groundhogs, rabbits, one raccoon, and one very large possum, several garter snakes and frogs. One even attacked a full grown deer that got into our suburban neighborhood and jumped our 6 ft fence. She took a big bite of deer hair off the deer's hip as he jumped back over the fence after a chase around the yard.

All of our Bs have grown up from puppies with cats and learned early on not to chase them. The stress of trying to keep the B away from the cats would worry me to death. I really hope your cats will be okay.

Thanks,

I did recognize some names but although I have belonged to BCOA for 25 yrs I would not know all reputable breeders.

I can see why people end up buying pups from people who are not especially concerned with health or anything but making money. I guess there is a long continuum from the backyard breeder who cares about and socializes his/her dogs to the worst of puppy mills.

I was shocked this summer to learn that Amish country in Ohio is known as a place where many people farm dogs just as they would farm hogs. Some in such terrible conditions it gave me nightmares for days.

I think we need humane education in the schools– the Canadians have it-- to teach kids able responsible pet ownership.

I happen to overhear a couple of people yesterday who were talking about how to find a puppy (of a specific dog breed) online and they said it was okay online because puppy mill dogs only go to pet stores!!

After a mini-lecture on breed organizations, rescue, etc. I decided to google basenji pups and see what popped up. Here it is below. Now if a person searching for a puppy knows little about how to find a reputable breeder (and people searching for their first dog may be like that), what does the Internet do for them?

From an early message @Segbwema:

Here are a few photos of Kenset's Liberty Belle and the cats (Zaki and Java together, and Angelfire, our current Aby). Need to scan photos of other Bs.

The last photo is Segbwema, the village I lived in for two years in Sierra Leone. The large white building in the background is PZ's warehouse and I lived on the top floor with the long verandas. Most nights I would sit out on the veranda with friends and watch the cattle egrets fly into the huge cotton tree across the street as we ate goundnuts (Americans call them peanuts) and drank Star beer (Heinikin). Joe, my basenji, loved to eat groundnuts. His regular meals were the same as mine– lots of rice, palm oil and fish with some greens (potato leaf or cassava leaf).

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. Great to be here. Here are some more photos.

Only Bs missing are Tanya and Baji, my first Bs, and the photos I have of them are in pretty sad shape due to a flood in our basement in the 70s.

JOE**
Joe was my basenjish dog I had as a Peace Corps volunteer in Segbwema, Sierra Leone in 1977-79. In one he is hanging over the balcony wanting to follow me to school and the other he is being groomed by my flat-mate's cat. More about him in that first message.
**
BINTA & CHEKA**
The first one was taken the day we picked up Binta from Sally Wournos (Sonbar) at a show in Racine. 1982 I think.

In the second one Binta and Cheka are waiting to get in our boat at Lake Yellowwood in Indiana . Circa 1984.

BELLE was my last basenji. Posted a photo of her in my first message in the thread and am going to use the head shot below as my avatar.

First photo is at Mary Lou Kenworthy's the day Zaki and Java met Belle for the first time. Must have been 1998.

Also posted a photo my Aby cat, Angelfire, currently the only animal in our house and not doing too well because of kidney disease. She is the sweetest animal ever.

Brings back wonderful memories to fish out these old photos.

Merry

@DebraDownSouth:

I guess things are different there. Here … a dog attack mine the dog would be secure or removed from the home of the irresponsible owners. And if where you walk is so dangerous, why not find somewhere safe or carry say, a baseball bat with you?

Sorry to be so late in responding, just figured out you might be replying to my message and not the one about Gizmo.

We have lived in this neighborhood for 22 years, and I have only seen dogs loose three times, twice with the owner right after them trying to get them back and the once when Belle was attacked. We have fairly strict leash laws and in the area of town I live in you just don't see dogs running loose. That was four years ago and I have not seen a loose dog anywhere around her since.

Although I do remember growing up in Tennessee in the 50s-60s when everyone on our street had a dog and they all were running loose all the time, including our dalmatian who used to chase the garbage truck!

It is wonderful that you took a rescue into your family. Thanks so much. Here are a few things I have heard people try over the years.

1. Keep him on a long leash (like 8-10 ft) tied to you or another responsible person when he is in the house. That way you can begin to identify clues when he is getting ready to mark and put him outside. Continue until the problem stops because he has learned what you want and wants to be off the leash.

If he was just recently neutered, it might be residual hormones behind this. So a few weeks might help.

I have heard people say a new dog in the house needs a room that is his. A place filled with his scent and no other animals. Helps he build confidence. I don;t know if this is true but when you are desperate, anything is worth trying.

There are underpants for bitches in heat (place for tail to come out). Some people have tried this when males piss inside as they absolutely hate it when they get in on themselves. The male dog wears them for a week after the last time it looks like he is going to raise his leg … Then if it reccurs, they go back on again (only when in the house obviously). Again I have not had this problem, but the panties did stay on an older bitch I had who was becoming incontinent. I thought she would bite them off but the ones I got were really well made.

Keep us posted on his progress. A loving basenji is worth a few cleanups!
