Sweet, cuddly and loving Basenji female puppy for sale to loving forever home. She was raised with 3 kids and shown by a 10 year old girl. She never barks, never sheds as long as you condition her coat once every 2 weeks, does not require grooming other then her nails. I would consider placing this show quality 7 months old Basenji female puppy in a pet only home. So this means you don't need to show her or breed her. If you ever change your mind we can make arrangements privately. But otherwise, you can have her as a pet only with no strings attached.
Her name is Kay. There is no problem with her at all. She is crate trained and leash trained. She does not climb fences like some Basenjis do. We did show her about 9 times so she has nice manners. She has lovely temperament. Her mom is a World Champion and her dad is a Best In Speciality Show. So you are getting top quality. Both parents are health tested up the ying yang. Both parents are Fanconi clear.
I have kept 3 females out of my last litter and one has to go. I need the money to pay for the costs of showing the others. So if you like this sweet basenji girl, you can bring her home.
Breed info: The Basenji is a breed of hunting dog that was bred from stock originating in central Africa. They were used in the Congo jungle by the Pygme tribes for hunting. The word Basenji means "bush thing". Basenjis first appeared in Egyptian hieroglyphics about 5,000 years ago. In 1895, Europeans came across Basenjis in the Congo. Basenjis were prized by locals for their intelligence, courage, speed, and silence. They were assistants to the hunt, wearing large bells around their necks and chasing wild game into nets for their masters.
Basenjis were brought to England in the 1930s. In 1941, Basenjis were brought to America, and were officially accepted into the American Kennel Club in 1943. Today, the Basenji can still be found working in Africa. First litter in Canada was born in November 1940 between Kikuyu of the Congo & Koodoo of the Congo under the kennel name Windrush.
The Basenji produces an unusual yodel-like sound commonly called a "barroo", due to its unusually shaped throat. This trait also gives the Basenji the nickname "Barkless Dog Of Africa".
Basenjis share many unique traits with the wild dogs of Australia called: dingos. They both come into heat only once a year, as compared to other dog breeds which have two breeding seasons every year. Both dingos and Basenjis lack a distinctive odor and are prone to howls, yodels, and other vocalizations over the characteristic bark of modern dog breeds. One theory holds that the latter trait is the result of the selective killing of barkier dogs in the traditional Central African context because barking could lead enemies to humans' forest encampments. While dogs that resemble the basenji in some respects are commonplace over much of Africa, the breed's original foundation stock came from the old growth forest regions of the Congo Basin, where its structure and type were fixed by adaptation to its habitat, as well as use (primarily net hunting in extremely dense old-growth forest vegetation).
The Basenji is alert, affectionate, energetic, curious and reserved with strangers. The Basenji is somewhat aloof, but can also form strong bonds with people. It is commonly patient. Basenjis dislike wet weather, like to climb, can easily get over chain wire fences, and are very clever at getting their own way. The Basenji has the unique properties of not barking (it makes a low, liquid ululation instead) and cleaning itself like a cat. It can be described as speedy, frisky, tireless at play, and teasing the owner into play. Basenjis reveal their animal-of-prey nature by chasing after fast moving objects that cross their paths.
