Ch Itzyu The Red Baron

BaronThis is Ch. Itzyu The Red Baron, sired by Wakan Goodgrief Charlie Brown and out of Itzyu Tell It Like It Is. Baron is OFA Good, Fanconi probable clear/normal, and CERF-able. He had a nice, if brief, show career, that included going Reserve Winners at the Cincinnati Specialty, one of his first shows.

Since then he has sired some very nice pups, including Ch. Wakan Iron Mojo (Best of Breed from the classes at the Potomac Hound Club show under breeder-judge Connie Paulsen) and Ch. Itzyu Walk The Line, JC, owned by Denise Searcy of Starfyre Basenjis. Baron has other kids that will be out and shown this year. He is notable for a really beautiful coat with lovely color and texture, good front, nice angles all around, good tailset, and a nice balance of solidity and refinement.

Mojo has sired an outstanding litter for Toni Ackerman this past year, with pups likely to be in the ring in 2009.

















This is Denise Searcy's Walker, Ch. Itzyu-Starfyre Walk the Line, JC, another Baron son, out of Itzyu Just One Look. This picture doesn't do him justice.

Ch. JuJu's Pistol Pete



 Ch. JuJu's Pistol Pete was bred by Russell V. Brown and was owned by Itzyu.  Pete died shortly before his 14th birthday, in January 2001.  He lives on at Itzyu throughout our lines. Excepting our full African Avongaras and one elderly rescue, every Basenji we own or co-own today is descended from Pete. We still have two living sons here -- Itzyu Nick of Time (Timmy), and group and specialty winner Ch. Reveille Hoo Wants Roses (Hoover), and a daughter, Itzyu Just One Look (dam of Walker, Bailey, and Good Golly Miss Molly.) Pictured with Damara Bolte handling.
