Australian Grand Champion 

Debrak On The Road Again (AI)



A clown, a comedian and a fantastic ambassador for the Basenji. Ringo is a absolute delight to live with. Always happy and a real larrikin. This kennel prides itself on many things.Temperament is one of those. I am thrilled that puppies from Ringo’s breedings have fabulous temperaments for which Tambuzi is becoming reknowned.

Ringo has had a wonderful show career so far. Show highlights include:

  • a multi runner up group (BIG-2) winner;
  • Best of Breed at Sunbury, the largest one day show in the Southern hemisphere, in 2011 & 2012;
  • Best of Breed at the Hound Club of Victoria Show 2010, 2011 & 2013;
  • best gaited in show at the Victorian Speciality 2012 under Basenji breeder judge Mr Alan Hunt (Pukkanut Basenjis);
  • best gaited in show at the Victorian Speciality 2014 under breeder judge Len Reddie (Redial Basenjis); and
  • Grand Champion title

Ringo has sired two litters; in 2012 four puppies to Aust Gr Ch Tambuzi At Light Speed with progeny Ruby being titled at 7 months and 1 week, and Tobi who is also titled. In 2013 he was mated to Aust Ch Tambuzi How Soon Is Now, 7 puppies born 24 June. Willow and Arthur are currently being shown. Both Willow and Arthur are also Champions. Willow is a Best Baby Puppy in Show and multi-Best Class in Group winner and Runner Up Best in Group (BIG-2) winner. Arthur is also a multi-best class in group winner and reserve dog challenge at the 2014 Victorian Speciality under breeder judge Lisa Tyler-Jackson.
