@maureen252 - In my opinion, 27lb bag is alot of food for one little Basenji. Even when I had up to 5, I wouldn't get a bag that big. Now with 2, I get the smallest possible. I would not wonder if it is possible that it has gone bad. Of course also I change up the kibble all the time....so I never have to worry about changing to a different food. I would try a new (small bag), however that said, it it has gone bad she may never want to eat it again.... You might look into changing the food....also add like a teaspoon/tablespoon of wet food...
You can search for breeders by state at www.basenji.org and/or try Evergreen Basenji Club http://evergreenbasenjiclub.org. There are a number of breeders in the PNW. Keep in mind that most all Basenjis are born this time of year and responsible breeders typically have reservations lists before the pups are born
7 weeks? Bit young to be taken from the litter? Usually it is at least 8wks? In regards to the ear, totally normal. Couple of my pups didn't have upright ears until after 8 wks, again normal. Note also that many time when teething, the ears will drop over. I have been raising Basenjis since 1991 and seen this all the time.... they are all different. I would not be concerned
When he ran into the wall.. was it head first? Could have been a neck and/or spine injury... hopefully the Vet will be able to determine. If that is possible the case, you might want to inquire about about acupuncture and cryotherapy. In my years and years of experience, never have seen this... so I would have to say injury when he crashed into the wall. And did your breeder have any thoughts?
