@lory-h - Have you spoken to his breeder? And agree with eeeefarm about diverting him before he goes for your feet... and reward for not indulging in feet biting... seems that he thinks this is a game for him. Work his mind, not just his body

@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...

We have always had leather couches and chairs... we put a throw on it as Basenjis like to nest...

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

@drew82 - In the US is it not legal to sell/place a pup at that age. I don't place mine before 9wks at the earliest and only homes with Basenji already. My pups are litter box trained so potty training is not an issue.

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

Have you spoken to his breeder? That should be your first contact. Did he come from Nocturnal Kennels? Blue and Cream are diluted colors

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?

@autumnhunter - Are you sure that the Basenjis were "debarked"? Did the owners/breeders/handlers tell you that? Just curious....

Speaking of tap water, I only use filtered water at home for both their water dishes and water on their food. When traveling I use only bottled water. Depending on the water you use... if you look at the residue in the bowl, you would not be drinking that either... we have very hard water, reason for filtered. And when traveling, bottle is best so you don't have a change because elbrant is correct, water from one location to another varies.

@autumnhunter - What shows were they (located/names)? I don't know of Basenjis that were debarked? Certainly none that I knew at shows and/or lure trials... been showing and going to trials for since 1991

@kembe - After many years of having elders, get used to it... as it most likely will continue.... happens when they get old. My OJ at 16 would make it as far as the doggy door and go on the floor.... I think he thought he was "close enough"

Good luck with that..... but thanks for trying
