This is Chumley. He was given to me by a family that didn't speak much English and thought they had a chihuahua. I grew up with a Basenji and over the month I've had him, more and more Basenji characteristics are showing up. Such as talking all the time, nipping me in the butt if I am not paying attention to him, playing with my hand by bringing his front foot down the side of his head, not listening to me most of the time, hating water, tearing up beds, tissue, paper. Everything I remember my first Basenji doing. Except he does bark…a lot. lol Noisy little guy. Other chihuahua traits I see is he walks like a dream and loves playing with my chi pack (I have a small chihuahua rescue), He's not snarky even though I have a lot of dogs here right now. He does bark a lot at my daughter's lab/pit mix, but doesn't try to fight him. He is just a delight.
barking at me
Getting a little dominante with the other dogs. He's been neutered now and this behavior has dissapeared
Such a sweet face
Cute curly tail
