Basenjis know when it is Basenji breeding season and if a bitch is just going out of heat they will know it

@Hana - Have you discussed with his breeder?

You should not see much of any change other than to not be as interested in bitches in season or interested in the typical Basenji Breeding Season. Of course each dog is different, but I doubt you will see much change

Go to www.basenjirescue.org or contact breeders as many times they have young adults that they have shown but are not looking to use in a breeding program and would like to place in a loving home. You can search for breeders at www.basenji.org and then go to the link Find a Puppy. You can search by state

Here is what my friend had to say:
Sounds like struvite crystals which is No Big Deal. They are usually the result of a UTI, or if the person is feeding a very (weirdly) alkalizing diet. Typically once the UTI is treated, no more crystals.

They should quit the vegetables for a while, check for UTI and get a good quality kibble. I suggest Fromm. :D The dog should be a-okay. Also, IIRC, struvite stones can be dissolved once they get the dogs urine acidic again, so even if he has stones surgery probably isn’t needed. Plenty of water is always a good thing too. Add lots to his food.

I don't have any experience with this, however if you give me your email address, I can send it to someone that has a Basenji with this issue. She can then communicate with you.

Sounds like you have not met Basenjis in person? Visited with breeders and/or owners? Suggest you do that first before deciding if a Basenji is the right dog for you. I know many, many people who are in apartments with Basenjis (living in San Francisco). It can work quite well. I don't agree that "intense" exercise is a requirement. Yes, exercise in general, but remember to work their "minds" too... Teaching things like sit, stay, down, etc... goes a very long way to exercise their minds and that does tire them out. All kinds of fun games you can use to exercise their minds.
