Personal Profile:
  • "Oti" was one of my personal favorites. True to his name, Oti was always calm, cool and collected and carried himself with the confidence of a king without an ounce of haughtiness. He was an exceptional ambassador to the breed, making friends wherever he went. And he went everywhere with his devoted owner, Kay - and his Basenji companion "Scuba". Together they hiked the trails of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Oregon, the Alaska Tundra and beyond. They shared the couch and savored the sunshine.
  • DOB:01/09/96
  • DOD: 05/07/09. Oti passed at nearly 13-1/2 years of age due to old age complications with pneumonia.
  • AKC #HM613637/04
  • Outstanding temperament: happy, calm, confident and quiet
  • Exceptionally dark, almond eye
  • Smooth and clean moving dog: coming, going and in profile
  • Board level topline with particularly strong rear assembly
  • Sperm is in storage at ICSB Oregon.
  • Tissue sample on file with the Canine Phenome Project at Univ. of Missouri-Columbia
  • Oti was of exceptional character with gentle leadership qualities that many humans and dogs could learn from.
  • Oti is deeply missed by all those who knew him. Run free, Oti, throughout your new kingdom...
