My wife & I were walking our dogs and across the street we see this small dog that looked like a basenji. When It saw us its ears & body focused on us like a basenji.
The owner came running over to us and explained she just adopted a Basenji jack russel mix from a shelter. It was really cute, smaller & thinner than a basenji with less white markings, but the fur, color (red) & facial wrinkles were all there.
The biggest surprise was, however, it could leap straight up in the air, like a bouncing ball! This dog would be quite a handful.
The owner said it behaved more basenji like, could only bark one bark at a time.
A very cute dog.
