My name is Brianna and I recently adopted a Basenji from a shelter with my boyfriend. We believe he's mixed with something since he doesn't yodel and he does shed quite a bit. Either that, or he's just a rebel.
His name is Murphy and he has captured our heart. He is sweet and then he has these incredible spurts of energy where he can keep himself entertained for a good 10 minutes of nonstop play. We call those his "spaz attacks." It may be just about the cutest thing we have ever seen. Murphy loves the leash free dog park and loves to play with his cousins, a beagle and a pit/lab. He has learned sit, come, and wait. We're working on those commands mostly before we move onto the next one. He's TERRIBLE on a leash. I bring him out 4-5 times a day and every time feels worse than the one before it.
Murphy is a military brat, but we think he fits right in. He loves car rides, so hopefully, he likes moving every four years, too!
