Arrival Story:
We had been looking for the right kind of dog for us. We became aquainted with the basenji breed and began doing some resarch. We wanted a dog that was different. After reading the good, the bad AND the ugly about basenjis we decided this was the dog for us. Through the BCOA website we were given the name of a breeder. We were not planning to get a dog until spring but as is the case with cars and dogs once you start to look; plan to buy. The breeder happened to have a litter that was ready to go to new homes. One of the atypical things about basenjis is that they typically are not bred more than once a year. So we decided to jump in with both feet and go look and of course once you see the cute little rascal you just have to have him. We were looking for a family dog and not a show quality dog. In Kito's litter that left pretty much just him. To us he was the best looking one of the bunch and we said we would take him. He came home three weeks later and so our adventure began...

We have only had Kito since the end of February but already he is extremely bonded to us. He is the first dog we have had as a family. He wants to be with us all the time. He is tremendously loyal.
