Itzyu Basenjis Home Page
Itzyu Basenjis is located in Central Virginia. Our breeding program is dedicated to preserving this unusual breed of dog.
Basenjis are an ancient breed, one whose development pre-dates modern concepts of selective dog breeding. The breed's characteristics, such as barklessness, intelligence, curiosity, and lively independence, are a heritage of that history.
At Itzyu, we believe that, when breeding Basenjis, we have a duty to protect and preserve that heritage. We use health testing, including Fanconi linkage marker DNA testing, and pedigree analysis to give the best possible odds of preserving and protecting a bloodline that can be shown successfully, can compete in lure coursing and obedience, and will make wonderful pets.
