I'm new to the forum. Although I don't have a Basenji any longer, I had a tri color Basenji that passed 2 years ago. Her name was Shelby and lived to be 16 years old. She had a really tight curly tail and big bold ears, and was your typical Basenji- smart as heck, stubborn as heck, peculiar as heck! Funny story about how my then-wife and I got her. Back in 1999, we dropped into a pet store in Malibu Creek Shopping Center off of PCH (doubt the pet store is there any longer). We had no intention of buying a puppy, just wanted to look and pet some cuties. Anyhow, we see a couple of Basenjis for sale and we were smitten. The store had originally brought in 3 puppies, a brindle, a black & white, and our tri, for the actor Kelsey Grammer to get the pick of the litter. He picked the black and white (supposedly Kelsey is a Basenji fan and had a chestnut and wanted another for a playmate). So, we had a litter mate to one of Kelsey's Basenjis.
Here are a couple of pics of her and our other dog, a Parsons Jack Russell Terrier. They were an awesome combo- very well matched.
