Our male passed on last year and we recently adopted a three year old kind of a rescue basenji. He is really a big guy, but sweet and gentle. He has not been neutered yet. When we first got him our old 12year old girl wanted nothing to do with him.
However now she is shamelessly flirting with him, romping around like a puppy, kissing him, pawing him, mounting him… He gives her looks like, leave me alone!
She does this thing where she stands sideways next to him but reversed, where she buts him with her but, flicking her tail on him, bucking like a horse. The strangest things these basenji's are. Never a dull movement and always something new.
She is like a new dog, she never acted like this with our old tri. Getting this new dog has been the best thing we ever did for her. She is so in love. They are inseparable.
Getting a mature dog was not without issues, he had anxieties and can't be crated as he spent much of his life in a crate.. Now he is doing great. Still a few accidents, but overall he is a great dog. The downside upside is, he attached to me and pretty much only me. The upside is he's attached to me!
Best thing we ever did.
