They're Irrepressible !
And if all goes well, you'll be able to enjoy their antics for many years. As is true for all breeds, Basenjis can have inheritable health problems. Among the diseases to be aware of are Fanconi Syndrome, Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA), IPSID, Hypothryroidism, and Hip Dysplasia. To find out more about these diseases, visit the Health Information link above. While no breeder can be 100% certain that a puppy will be free from disease, some breeders will guarantee the health of their pups. Breeders who are concerned about the welfare of the breed do their best to produce healthy Basenjis by using all available health testing before they breed. Know what to ask, and ask before you buy!
