Who are we?

After many years with Arabian horses, sisters Pam Geoffroy and Sheila Lund became involved with basenjis in 1993. The establishment is small and personal with an emphasis on producing happy, healthy basenjis who are suitable for pets, show or performance dogs.

You can meet the Eldorado Basenji sisters at one of the many dog shows in New England, always at the annual Basenji Club of America National Specialty or at our home by appointment.

In 2008, we began to co-breed with Susan Coe who has been known for her Akuaba Basenjis since 1970. She has retired to Australia and keeps her hand in with our combined efforts.

In 2009 the magazine "The Basenji" interviewed Pam and Sheila for the Meet the Breeders series. Click here to read the interview in PDF format.


Where are we?

We are just a few miles off of Interstate-95, south of Boston and north of Providence, Rhode Island in North Attleboro, Massachusetts.

What's available?

Basenjis in the northern hemisphere all tend to have puppies at the same time, once a year in the winter. Some pups leave at about 9-10 weeks old and others stay a bit longer before we are ready to let them go. Additionally there are sometimes adult basenjis available to those who don't have the time or inclination to raise a baby puppy. Yes, we do have pet puppies and even show puppies from time to time. Whatever your needs, we will be happy to discuss our prospects with you.
