We met a 12 year old basenji a couple of days ago while walking. The dog had a huge indent in his eye socket/cheek area that seemed to alter the shape of that eye. Even Kipawa sensed the eye was 'wrong' and licked at it softly.
Do any of you know what that might have been? The dog is a rescue dog (has had 4 homes now). So maybe an injury? I would see that as possible. The owner, however, said that she had heard that basenjis could get this 'problem'. The dent was definitely in the bone structure. It was not like a coloboma (a hole in the eye itself).
I'm going to see if I can find a picture of what I'm describing.
