I own five basenjis. Two yodel until you have a headache and my female barks. She always did. Short clipped barks. I also researched the breed before getting my first and she is an excellent dog. My third basenji was a handful. Three years later and he has stopped his destructiveness etc. It was a hard three years. Lol. You never know with a basenji. Greatest breed. Loyal, active, funny but some require ALOT of patience.
Lunatic Basenji in CT!
Hello All! we are new to this forum. I adopted my crazy Luna (actually she chose me!), from a local animal shelter nearly 6 months ago. I knew nothing about the Basenji breed and she is still slowing teaching me… Luna is my first dog and wants to make sure that she is the ONLY child in the house. So far I have discovered that she loves to chase squirrels, tease birds and really hates cats. As for other dogs, she snarls, howls and lowly barks at them (she complains alot!) but after I scold her, she sometimes will let them approach. Sometimes she is a lot of work but I love my little 5yr Luna!
I think by having a basenji or basenji mix for your first dog, what you are really getting is a whole semester of teaching in summer school condensed format!!!! Congrats on your new girl! She looks happy to have her own backyard! Stay tuned to the forum for 'mucho' information!
