We have been following Giza closely since puppy-hood, and she has been one of our alltime favorite basenjis. Not only does she have a BEAUTYFUL, basenji type appearence, that's been proved over and over again by countless Best Of Breed wins, group and BIS placements, but she was even BASENJI OF THE YEAR in Norway in 2009, having been shown considerably less then her biggest competetors.
In 2010 she was also BEST IN SHOW on our speciality under breed specialist Lisa Tyler as well as a Norwegian champion on her first possible show.
We particularly love her very good size and bone structure, her beautiful striding gait, her lovely wrinkled head with the desired side wrinkles, her perfect angulations, beautifully arched neck and steady topline.
She is however, not just beautiful.... She has the temperment of a lovely playful labrador retriver who loves life! She loves to cuddle, and I have never seen her reserved against anyone. The thing that amazes me the most of her is the way she has taken care of other bitches puppies. She immediatly steps in as a "play-mum", and she has even produced milk. I have seldom seen such an amazing motherly instinct. She just loves puppies! It is about time she got a litter of her own...
I have to give her owner Jeanette Strand a HUGE thanks for letting us lease this AMAZING bitch for breeding. You are the best friend ever!
