Basenji Companions

Devoted to Basenjis as Pets

Who We Are

Founded in April 1997, we are a club devoted to pet Basenjis, Basenji-mixes and their owners.

We Provide an extended community of care and support for Basenjis and their owners.

We Share knowledge and information about the upbringing, nurturing, training, safety, history and enjoyment of the companion Basenji, a magical, but utterly unique (and sometimes trying) dog.

We Include education, celebration, support, and help for Basenjis who have fallen on hard times in our life-circle of caring for these, our Basenji Companions.

    The best place to do so is with Basenji Rescue and Transport (BRAT) online and on Facebook. You can also post in our Facebook group.
