Welcome to the Forum to you and Buddy. It's very difficult to tell with him lying in his basket (cute). He appears to have Basenji colouring but I'd have to see more pictures before I gave an opinion. How big is he actually? Has he any white or is he just red all over? How old is he?
I hope you're successful with his trainng. Keep persevering and don't rigidly follow training suggestions which don't seem to work. There is plenty of helpful advice here from well qualified people.
He has some white on his chest and on one paw. I'll try to get pics of him standing. Buddy is about 7lbs. He's a little under weight but I'm working on that The shelter said he's about 18 months old.
I'm no expert, but he definitely has Chihuahua eyes - the head shape could be Basenji. Regardless, welcome to the forum. I have received a lot of very helpful information here about training. After I got my Basenji, I had some trouble with him and the folks here were stellar in offering tips and support. Good luck and congratulations on your new addition!
Thank you. I've been told he looks like a min pin. I see it but he really doesn't have the face of a min pin, but that's just me.
Welcome, whatever your dog's breed, thank you for opening your home and heart up to this little critter!
Thank You. It felt really good to be able to adopt him from the shelter.
Welcome! Buddy is a cutie. I confess I'm a sucker for large, pricked ears.
I'm not sure I see Basenji, but I do see Miniature Pinscher. They come in red, too. Anyway, it's hard to tell without weight/size/seeing him in person… and even then, you may never know. Whatever he is, he looks like a spirited, alert little fellow.
There are a lot of good training threads on this board, particularly useful for working with little dogs with big personalities. You may find them useful. Generally speaking, I like to keep things positive, use rewards, and be patient. Other training threads will get into specifics. Happy reading!
You know, it's funny because my husband and I wanted a big dog. But when we tried to connect with them, they had no interest.
Buddy was the only dog that wasn't barking and was calm. Within 5 mins he took to us and I couldn't help but fall in love with him. I'm a sucker for big ears lol.
The whole time I've had him I've only heard him bark twice. Which I love! I didn't want a dog that barks at everything.
I will do my best to post more pics of him and show you all
