@DebraDownSouth - The Cambria in this pedigree is not from Bob Mankey... this person using the Cambria name is a backyard breeder that stole the Cambria name and was using it on their dogs until June 1, 2004 when the AKC granted the Kennel name Cambria as restricted and any submission with Cambria as the kennel name would not be accepted
Being champion show dogs has nothing to do with the price. Champion Basenjis (be it in the show ring or performance ring/field) show the breeder that they are breeding correct Basenjis in conformation, ability, and most important temperament. I have never made money on any litter that I have raised, lucky to break even. Breeders are tying to cover their cost of a litter as there are many things involved in breeding and breeding for the right reasons.
Have you talked about diet with Dr. Gonto? And also has your Vet talked to Dr. Gonto about treatment? He would be more than happy to discuss this with your Vet to make sure the correct amount of medications are being given based on the blood work. According the the protocol, recommend crude protein is 21 to 28%. It says to avoid foods hither than 28% in Basenjis. This is based on the lastest protocol from Dr. Gonto revised 2015.

How old is your boy? I assume that you have advised the breeder? And I assume he or his sire/dam were not tested for Fanconi? Would you share his pedigree? Thanks
