Elena, thanks for the painted dog info. Very interesting.
Poor dog socialization skills
Has anybody dealt with a basenji that simply would not get along with any other dog? Every time he sees another dog he will remain quiet until he's within touching distance and begin to growl. This instigates the other dog who 100% of the time is initially being friendly when approaching him and then instantly turns them into an aggressive dog towards my basenji. It's frustrating that I cannot take him to the dog park when we see other dogs there or let him come over a friends house that has dogs. We've tried professional dog trainers and no success.
If you have had this issue and found a way to resolve it please do tell. I want to be more social with my basenji but I cannot deal with him attacking every dog he sees.
