Am Ch Amore I See Stars Svengali

The first bred by bitch to be born here at Amore Basenjis, Lola has come quite a long way in her 2 years of life. I have to say, I am so proud of all that she has accomplished.  In just 3 short months, and 4 shows, Lola has far out passed my expectations for her. At our very first show weekend out, Lola was 7 months old. She ended up taking Winners Bitch all 3 days of the show, taking home 3- 3pt majors! She also took Best Of Breed on the second day and went on to achieve a group 2 also!!  She continued on to get a group 1 in Bred By Competition and it was such a great experience. Unfortunately, I didn't realize we were supposed to go up against the other groups to see who got Best puppy in show! (ya, i know. what a dork!) ;) So, we didn't get to have that chance, but, after that whole weekend, I was so far in the clouds, it didn't matter. She did so well, and I was so proud of her. At 8 months, she took a 4 point major with some very beautiful dogs. At 9 months, she took at 5pt major, beating multiple GCHs and was Best of Winners under the number 2 Basenji in the Nation at the time! By 10 months, she finished her championship with the final point she needed.  She has continued on, now with only limited showing, to achieve an additional 6 points towards her GCH. We plan to continue this on. 

Lola is such a spunky little girl.  She loves to be indepenent and on her own but when she gets tired, she does enjoy a good snuggling from the humans she loves. 

Lola is a gorgeous light brindle with very nice dark black stripes that illuminates her coat. She was born Dec 6, 2012 to Can CH Africanadian Mia of Ahmahr Nahr and MBISS/Am DC/Can Ch/BIS Mex Ch/FCI Int'l Ch/Panamerican Ch Zindika Svengali Determinator SC. She has 2 other sisters, both dark brindles, and a big brother too, who is a black brindle.

We are so proud of how far Lola has come and we look forward to continuing her showing career but also enjoying her as our pet and companion.
