First off I will say I am very new here, but so glad to have our new pup Rex. I have been a dog owner before, but a Basenji has been a much different experience. He is a super sweet dog that has taken well to his training so far. No horror stories except for the screaming the first couple nights in the cage/den. He is getting better each night and we have tried to make Rex as comfortable as possible in his extra large cage. Rex is almost 10 weeks old and today he was taken to the vet to be neutered. Since he is not going to be in a breeding program and will be an inside dwelling dog we felt neutering was best for him. The vet was very nice and through and his demeanor has been good considering what he went through today. The issue is that he did urinate several times once I got home with him today, but both times he tried to poo poo he screamed bloody murder. It was a scream that made me feel like he was saying "Hey I am in pain and what is attacking me? Why am I hurting so bad?" I am worried for him because he has such a sweet demeanor and I don't want to lose his trust. The second time he tried to go and screamed I reached down to pick him up and comfort him he bit me as hard as he could. I was not upset and continued to console him and felt helpless. I had a tiny tot rat terrier and he had no issues getting neutered so this worries me. I am I experienced with Basenjis but I have learned his sounds and today it sounded like he was in sheer terror and pain. Any suggestions, comments, concerns, or criticisms would be greatly welcomed.
