Arrival Story:
We live in NYC and had to travel 5 hours away to upstate NY to her breeder. There were only a few Basenjis available for adoption, but of course the one we ended up with was not the one the breeder had in mind for us. Ostara was 10 months old when she became a part of our family and had only known rural NY. Upon arrival in the Bronx, she was afraid of the garbage truck, the traffic and noise and STAIRS! A problem because at that time we lived in a 5 floor walk up. She quickly adapted and was very friendly to all until we visited a friend with 3 Jack Russels. They started ganging up on her and she beat all 3 alone even though her brother, Siggy wanted to help. After that she took no guff from any 4 legged person. She was very sweet and gentle, elegant and brave. Her name Ostara, is the name of the pagan goddess of Spring because she was born in the Spring (unusual for Basenjis).

She (as most Basenjis in my experience) was very healthy. She had just had a annual physical and suddenly died after coming up after a walk. We believe she worried so much about Siggy (his spinal injury) that it contributed to her death.
