So many times people post pictures and ask what folks on the forum think about their dogs. Often, the most convincing in appearance turn out disappointingly to not have any Basenji blood. When you think about it, there are not likely all that many crossbreds out there. Most people with an intact Basenji bitch are not looking to cover her with anything but a purebred male, and in North America generally females are spayed because most breeders require it for pet puppies. Bitches that are showing are even less likely to be bred to something outside the breed.
Thank you, he sure is! His new sister is Teki, our 2 y/o trindle. She came home to us when she was 7 months. She’s still getting used to Zulu and sharing her toys, our bed and huparents but doing well with him being that he’s only been home for 6 days
A very long time ago, before I had Basenjis, I used to walk and train dogs for people. My constant companion was a small GSD crossbred, and she helped me teach many dogs recall in a similar fashion. I would attach them together by the collars, and she would bring the dog with her when I called. One time, her head was down and the other dog pulled away, and she slipped her collar. Tippy understood what had happened. From then on, when she had to stop and turn the other dog, she sat back on her hindquarters like a roping horse, held her head high to retain the collar, then brought the dog back to me! Dogs are smart!
