One last note on the Basenji mix, I became acquainted with the breed originally from a neighbor that has a Basenji / Shepard mix. It has the greatest combination of traits of both breeds. I am 46 years old and have had several breeds over my lifetime and never have been so impressed as I am with my neighbor's dog. It is now 11 years old and still going strong with no health issues. I know there are no guarantees with mixed breeds but if I go that route knowing about the parents certainly helps. My neighbor's dog resulted from a friend's pets, Basenji and Shepard... not a breeder.
Wanted : Besenji puppy or mix with known parents
I would like locate a Besenji or confirmed Besenji mix puppy. I am in Missouri but will travel for a known reliable breeder that can prove they have bred responsibly. Not looking for potential show winner, just a healthy puppy.
