    Whenever he is sleeping his tail uncurls whenever he is awake it instantly curls and whenever he falls back asleep it doesnt curl!

    All of them are different. I have some that relax completely when sleeping, even eating. I also have some that wouldn't relax or uncurl unless you broke the tail.

    It is interesting that some do and some don't. The one thing I'm finding out about B's, they're very different in so many different ways!

  • Whenever my Savannah gets scared, it uncurls. The other day we were at the park watching my step son play baseball and I guess she was a little unsure of her surroundings and it was uncurled. My husband picked it up and it went back on her back curled.

    Abbey's tail stays in a tight little curl when she's asleep. One day at the park she was surrounded by big dogs and she tucked her bottom down and her tail went completely limp. Curled right back up again when the dogs left!

  • Jojo's tail will relax when she is stretched out relaxing or sleeping but the white tip always has a little curl to it. My favorite thing about the curled tail is her wagging it when she is happy to see someone…

  • All my B's tails uncurl when sleeping… Kristii's does stay curled at the very end, but she has a very tight "kink" at that end.....

    Also as they age the tails get Loose....

  • The tails looses with age? Very interesting. So when people talk about they're B's tail uncurling, does it uncurl all the way? Like B-Boy Alanis would have to be broken to uncurl. It relaxes a little but the tip is always curled.

    Two have no kinks in the tail at all and can make their tail completely limp. Two have a little kink at the very end…....it's always there, but the tail can relax.
    Two have kinks so tight, you couldn't straighten it......and those two just hate for you to even touch their tail.

  • Yeah, Alani has a very tight kink on the tip. She relaxes that when she's deep in thought (I know I can get this apart, I know I can) or when she's sleeping. She also hate when you touch the kink. She doesn't mind the rest of the tail.

  • Tana's uncurls when he's relaxed.

    Funny that different basenji's un/curl in different, seemingly opposite situations- some when they're scared and some when they're relaxed.

  • Corky's sometimes uncurls when he's sleeping and sometimes when he is comfortable. I can always tell if he's really OK with someone. If his tail is uncurled, they're OK by Corky!
