I'm a new member here, and recently have decided on a particular Basenji mix from a rescue. I don't have her yet though because currently I live with my parents who have Chihuahuas. They said they heard that Basenjis can view little dogs as prey and even just snap one day. I thought that sounded just silly, & said that even if this were a real concern with full Basenjis, a mix might be a little more mellow. But I decided I better investigate, and did see the posts mentioning Chihuahuas interacting with Basenjis where the negative behavior was based around toys, but I wanted to address the issue specifically to see if anyone has heard that this is a bad combination. I'm sure no one wants to make a blanket statement like that, but would you avoid it if possible??
My parents aren't adamant about this, they're just "concerened" - but they know I love this particular dog. Finiding this out NOW, though, what a bummer!!
