Basenji dogs are adorned with a light build, slender and long legs, a very lively and intelligent personality, graceful movements and an athletic body posture. They seem reserved, cold and uninterested towards strangers, but towards their family they are very affectionate. They also have a pronounced hunting instinct.

In 2017 we bought the first Basenji female and in 2018 we opened a kennel called Collum Album Basenji. In breeding, we emphasize two colors: red-white and brindle-white, and we pay special attention to the standard prescribed for Basenji. For each individual we use in breeding, we perform genetic tests such as Fanconi syndrome test (kidney disease) and BAS-PRA test (eye disease). The genetics of our puppies is based on the name of two well-known Basenji kennels: Kupalpan and Dar Bony Sona. Until now, puppies from our kennel have made their owners happy from Hamburg to Moscow, some of them are used in breeding with very good exhibition results.
