@pawla All three of mine loved tissues, especially as puppy’s, used or fresh lol. My latest dog, Bandit, used to grab the end of the toilet roll and unravel about 30 feet of it around the house.
Basenji from West Africa

Well hello there, beautiful dog! What's his name? I like the shape of his ears.
that was my exact thought - those lovely, lovely ears.
More pics, please!

Wow, he is a beautiful dog! His tail is long and straight, so not a basenji trait, but his face looking through the banister is very basenji - whatever he is, he certainly is unique!

I have never heard of an Avuvi until I read it above. I looked it up and was surprised that there was one at the dog park in Marietta, Ga last week. He thought it was a basenji mix since it had a straight up, pointed tail. Next time I see him, I will suggest researching Avuvi. Captmidight, are you still in Northern VA?
I had never heard of an Avuvi until now. He is a local dog from my village which was about 35 miles west from the Ghana Border. I would not be surprised that they are similar. I will try to post some more photos of him later.
Btw, his name is Whala. If anyone is considering an African name for a Basenji puppy, I would recommend Kikuyu (Ki Coo You). Its the Hausa word for puppy.
As far as I know the "typical" dogs in Togo are a breed called Hahoawu.

The description of the hahowu sounds similar to the basenji but with the straighter tail and without the basenji wrinkles. They also yodel instead of bark and come from Togo.
Wow he is so pretty..I love his picture through the banister.
Thank you so much for sharing.
Yes, please, more photos. Does your dog bark??
