Dude was from our "incredible" litter. The ultrasound at the vet's had confirmed that Mama Heidi was definitely NOT pregnant, so she went home to her breeder Flo Havens in Arizona. About 2 1/2 weeks later, Flo called us and asked if we could help her out by picking up a dog she needed a temporary place for. Yep, it was Heidi, and a short time later she gave birth to 4 beautiful black and white girls and one handsome red boy - The Dude.
Dude came by his call name naturally. He was and is the most mellow, laid-back Basenji we've ever owned. All of our other dogs love him - even the other males who don't normally like other boys
Dude's outstanding qualities include his beautiful deep red coat and his lovely, masculine head.
On Jan. 29, 2011, after coming out of retirement from the ring, Dude achieved his AKC Grand Championship title just 4 days after he officially achieved Veteran status, and almost exactly 6 years after he earned his AKC Championship.
