  • Thanks B-Boy, Vanessa and Jill …she does look exotic, doesn't she! My Dad said politley 'is she going to look more like the other dogs when she grows up?' he was particularly wondering why her tail isn't very curly ;) We had a little lesson about africans vs. domestics :)

    The really amazing thing is how MUCH she camouflages! Maybe it is a brindle thing?,or her type of smudgy brindle...but, it is REALLY hard to find her in the yard, or even the couch! I think she looks like an African Wild Dog pup ;)

    She looks like she belongs on the Michael Work calendar! She does look like a wild dog pup, but I like the Africans, loose tail and all. I find ours to be just as lovable as the domestics if not more. Where I see a difference is in how they deal with each other. My Africans seem to be more intense over who's who in the social order.

  • she is beautiful. I love the Brindle. I am new to this so can you give some background on the African vs. Domestic. I am not sure what that means.

    Due to a limited gene pool, they went to Africa and brought back more dogs.

    The 'domestic' lines of Basenjis come down from about 12 original dogs imported to the western world in the 1930s.

    There were the imports BBoy mentioned added in the late 1980s. Then there were more imports brought in over the last few years, who will also hopefully be added to the AKC registry in the next year or so.

    Most of the latter day imports, and their decendants (when bred to other Avongara dogs) go by the registered name "Avongara" ..which indicates they are 100% blood from recent imports. Some breeders focus on breeding lines of Avongara dogs to keep long lines of separate genetic material. Some breeders mix Avongara lines with their domestic to infuse new genes. Some breeders have only domestic lines.

    All Basenjis with the brindle pattern go back to the Avongara dogs somewhere in their pedigree. That is a color that was reintroduced with the 80s imports.

    Hopefully that helps a little :)
