|My wife and I decided to get a Basenji after 18 years of Chihuahuas. This past January we started the process. Because of timing (outside our control), we had no luck with breeders in NJ, NY, PA, CT, VA and MD. Some were condescending, some talked bad about others, and some discouraged us adding a Basenji to a household with a toddler. Then we found Whitney at Amore Basenjis. I immediately got a different vibe than from the other breeders I spoke to. She was refreshingly honest and straight forward. She was well informed. She obviously loves her dogs and was very careful that they would go to good homes/owners without being condescending. She was available to answer questions. The puppy (Dewey) is beautiful and healthy with a wonderful demeanor and personality. He is fantastic with our son and we love him more and more all the time. I cannot recommend Amore Basenjis highly enough. I would work with Whitney again in a heartbeat.
