Arrival Story:
I had been researching dog breeds for several months & came across the Basenji -- no barking, no scent to their fur, no slobbering (mouth always closed), intelligent, primitive dog with an exotic history (Pharoahs kept them as pets) -- I was sold! I had never seen nor heard of one before, but found a few breeders throughout California. I liked what one breeder had to say, drove 3 & a half hours to Fresno to meet Shaka (then unnamed) & two others. The breeder lived on a very large ranch & eventually could see 3 dogs perfectly aligned side by side, seated in an x-pen outside the house & watching me drive up -- they were even cuter than the pictures. After spending 3 hours with the dogs & the breeder, I chose Shaka for his tempermant & markings. I was hoping to like the "pet quality" dog as Shaka was a "show quality" dog which meant a higher price tag, but it was Shaka's personality that had me. No career in the show ring for this "snipped & chipped" Basenji, but I'm sure he doesn't mind -- for he's a star in my home and he knows it.
