WingedLion - Responsible breeders are proud of the Basenjis they produce and proud of their pedigrees that includes health testing. Making all that public. Others in the breed look to these breeders and are happy to refer people to them that have an interest in the breed or looking for a puppy.
This person in PR does not seem to be interested in sharing this information. I have communicated with this person asking for information regarding the Basenjis that are being bred with no results. Nothing on social media (twitter/facebook) for this kennel (listed as Cachorros Basenjis) other than some pictures.
So you can't blame us for being skeptical that this is a responsible breeder.
@ryulal - Go to www.basenji.org and you can search by state for a responsible breeder. Go to the link that says Find a Puppy. Breeders will have DNA tested before breeding along with other health testing. And testing results are public at www.offa.org
In regards to puppyfind.com, there are some responsible breeders that advertise here so that people can see the difference between backyard breeders and responsible breeders, especially with health testing. This breeder that WingedLion is buying from is in Puerto Rico, ad says nothing about AKC registration or any health testing, DNA testing for Fanconi/PRA. These are tests you can check out for yourself. Here is a link to a fully health tested Basenji http://www.ofa.org/display.html?appnum=1415062#animal
From a responsible breeder you are going to pay more than 600.00 as the cost of properly breeding a litter cost way more than people think. I have never made money off a litter, lucky to break even. Responsible breeders are not breeding to make money, they are breeding to better the breed
@Golf_Guy - Go to www.basenji.org and there is a link Find a Puppy that will take you to links to search by state. These are members of the Basenji Club of America (parent Basenji Club) and are breeders that health test... do not just use a web based site that can't produce or point you to www.offa.org that publishes health testing to the public. Here is a link of a well tested Basenjis. You need registration number or name and you should check it out for yourself. http://www.offa.org/display.html?appnum=1415062#animal
@WingedLion - As noted there is a conversation going on FB about this House of Basenjis, the pictures they are using are NOT her dogs, especially the Tri Male that is free stacked on their home page. It is a picture of a very well bred Basenji owned by a breeder and a well titled Best In Show male that lives in Texas... Run very fast from this so called breeder
