My goal in my breeding program at Tammen's Basenji is to produce a healthy all around hound who
is a good family member, that can also compete in Performance events and Conformation events if
the owner wishes. Tammen's Basenjis has produced American Kennel Club Group Winning and
Group Placing Basenjis, American Kennel Club Grand Champions and Champions along with
United Kennel Club Grand Champions and also Best In Show Winners & Reserve Best In Show Winners, our dogs are also working in the obedience and agility rings and coursing fields.
In 2001 Tammen’s Basenjis started their breeding program with the breeding of a ½ African Foundation Bitch that was acquired from Susan Coe of Akuaba Basenjis. Her name was AKC CH/UKC CH Akuaba The Cat’s Meow JC AOM (Winnie) she is the first ½ African Basenji to receive an AOM. She is out of AKC CH Akuaba’s Tiger Lilly BBHR by Elija of Esenjo.
