Meet Yoda Possible basenji?

Yoda is a rescue dog from spain and we think he may be part basenji, what do you guys think?

He looks basenji-ish to me. Obviously no way to know with DNA testing, but he is beautiful.

What kind of sounds does he do?

He's silent, doesn't make much noise at all and doesn't really pay interest in humans.

Certainly has some Basenji characteristics. Would love to see more pictures, particularly taken from the side. How big is he?

His head looks more like a pharoah hound - how tall is he?

I agree with wizard, Pharoah type hound

Here is a photo of my girlfriend holding him so you can get the perspective of his size


Oh, he's quite a bit bigger than I first thought. Perhaps pharoah hound is the most likely, colour fits too.

Perhaps also Podenco Andaluz in there - they have that color and the pointy ears. Great smile!

Gosh yeah at that size, I'd suggest Pharaoh hound over basenji.

@kjdonkers he is actually from spain so that makes sense and looks that size! He is far too small to be a pharoah hound - his legs are quite short 🙂

Yes I agree, Podenco Andaluz more likely. Size, color, from Spain.
Here's a picture I found on the internet:

Yes I am Infact from England , and yoda is from Spain.

There are lots of charities in Europe taking care of Spanish dogs, as they are treated pretty badly - especially the hunting breeds (sighthounds), like podenco (comes in all sizes and colors) and galgo (a little smaller than a greyhound).


AH I missed that. Then yep, the others are probably right!

Could have some Xoloitzcuintli (Mexican Hairless dog) ???
