THAT is REALLY Awesome! Love you guys. 👊😁👍
Is my dog a Basenji?
This is Daisy. She's just barely over 1 yr old now. When I got her I was told her mother was a Staffordshire Terrier, but not sure about the father.
As she's grown older I've tried to figure out what she may be and I think I've settled on Basenji. Let me know what you experts think…
She has two different barks. A normal deep dog bark that she rarely uses, and a high-pitch yelp that she mostly uses to get attention for something.
She's friendly, but really shy around strangers, until she spends some time around them. She weighs about ~50lbs.
What do ya think? Is she a Basenji?
The wrinkles sure look like a B. 50lbs probably comes from the Staffordshire. No white what-so-ever though…..

Could be! The Basenji rescue had some mixes listed and they knew that the mother was a purebred. All four pups looked very different from one another and none of them really looked like Basenjis, but the mom was a known factor - so it's anyone's guess. I agree with Krunzer though - those wrinkles are an indication as are those big ears. Whatever she is - she's adorable!

She could very well be a basenji mix. I agree with Krunzer… interesting there is no white on her at all.
Whatever she is, she looks so absolutely adorable! I love the 3rd picture. She looks so curious about something she is watching.
The one thing that would make me question the Basenji part is the complete absence of white, but I absolutely love the look of this dog! She's gorgeous!!!!!

Yeah I just looked thru the forum….Tagaroo has a dog that looks just like this one.

What a pretty girl! Her head/ears/face & wrinkles are Basenji-looking while her coloring & build suggest some Malanois blood–that would account for her size & aloofness, too. Our local SPCA does genetic testing as a fund-raising thing, if you're really curious you could try something like that...
