Our Red and White Basenji is a heat seeking missile. He loves to lay anywhere it is warm, will do a tap dance on a heat vent trying to get it to turn on, and loves to bath in the direct sunlight. He has been this way since he has been a puppy.
On the other hand, our 5 month old female Tri Basenji, seems to like the sun, but does not like to lay directly in the sunlight. Unless indoors, she will go to great lengths to get under something so she is not in direct sunlight.
Has anyone else noticed similar behavior in their Tri, Brindle, or Black and White Basenji?
