LOL, not sure I share a lot of traits with my basenjis, except not following rules and being independent. So much of the words could be applied to many breeds, it's the total package that makes them so unique!
As far as aloofness, though–I'd talk to a stump.
What I do notice is that 2 of my chosen breeds (Chows and Basenji == the other is Rottweilers) are ancient dogs who are not too impressed with being told what to do or pleasing others. The Rottweiler, overly eager to please, is odd breed out.
I know that life on a dog board really truly does show similar owner traits, lol. The Rottie board is full of tough women who aren't concerned if you have a strong opinion since they have their own. And I fit that.
The chow board, omg.. 17 yrs on that board and if there is a fight, EVERYONE who isn't in the fight disappears til it's over. Other than puppymillers/byb/abuse, everyone stays out of it. No jumping on the bandwagon, no people waiting til someone ELSE says something then listing a host of their own issues since time began (ie piling on). They fight their own fights, but they don't get into others. And that is so much like the breed, lol.
I used to moderate AOL dog boards. If there were over 300 posts on the Rottie board, there was a huge fight or disagreement going on. Normally we might have 60 to 80 posts a day.One day my dd came in and I opened the golden retriever board -- which had about the same number of regular posters. I groaned "340 something posts" and my daughter said "what are they fighting about?" I said "Nothing, they always post that much." LOL.
