The Officer Holders and members of the Victorian Basenji Breed Association were once again excited to participate at Royal Melbourne Show in the Rarer and Breed Showcase 2014. This year there was a new layout and more breeds participating.

“Great opportunity to introduce Basenjis to the show visitors”


The VBBA Committee thank all the members that were involved in putting together a spectacular exhibit. Making such a standout exhibit does not come without a lot of hard work; from painting the massive 3mx2.4m backdrop in a native scene, to making props; native hut, shields, spears etc to compliment the  backdrop. The Basenji enjoyed wearing their bandanna’s!

VBBA members and their Basenjis were on hand to answer your questions about the ‘barkless’ Basenji;

  • breed characteristics;
  • breed history;
  • misconceptions about the breed;
  • will the breed be suited to your lifestyle.

Special thanks to Ethel who flew down from Brisbane with her ‘Congo’ born full African Basenji – Akua.
