We adopted Bailey last summer, she is approximately 2 years old. The shelter we rescued her from and the vet labeled her as a "pitbull mix". I have an American Pitbull Terrier and Bailey has no pittie qualities that I can tell. I have read about the Basenji and she seems to have almost all the behaviors, but is obviously mixed with something else.
She is 36.2 lbs, highly intelligent but also very stubborn and will do things her way unless it benefits her to do what you ask. She is very energetic and always playful, very loyal and sticks to me like glue. She barks on occasion but only when alerting to someone coming in the house unexpected, other than that she does the yodeling thing that Basenjis do. She really is the quietest dog I've ever had, except when she wants to get to the chipmunks and bunnies in the yard, or the neighborhood cat she sees out the window, then she becomes verbal but doesn't bark. Any ideas or opinions appreciated.
