Happy New Year everyone! I have a 10 month old daughter and a 3 year old male basenji. We have had him since 8 weeks and he has always been "the baby" up until we had our little girl. He is very well socialized with people (he went to work with me every day for 2 years) and loves kids. He has even been sweet with other crawling age babies that he met before our baby arrived. I was nervous that he might be a little jealous when she was born so I read up on all the suggestions for how to introduce our fur baby to the newest member of the family. When she finally arrived we followed every suggestion, letting him get her scent, letting him come up to the bassinet and sniff and lick her, never discouraging his curiosity. However, once the initial wonder of this new tiny bundle wore off, he decided that he wanted nothing to do with her. Naturally I was a bit heartbroken that he didn't want to be sweet and snuggly with her the way his was with other children in the past. I thought perhaps as she got a bit she older and was able to interact it might get better and she would regain his interest, but now that she is crawling and toddling around the house it's only gotten worse. He is very vocal with her and will growl at her just for looking at him from across the room. If she tries to crawl even vaguely in his direction he bolts to the opposite end of the room. She has never yanked on his fur or pulled his tail, and they are always closely supervised when they are sharing the same space. We have tried giving him treats when he comes near her, but he just takes them and runs away. We have tried letting her give him the treats, but it doesn't make any difference. I try to keep him calm and make spending time with her a positive experience, but it doesn't seem to be working. I'm hoping that as she continues to grow that he may start to come around, but I'm worried that he may be too stubborn for that if left unchecked. I love my furbaby and want him to be happy with his new little sister. I hate seeing him so miserable. Our daughter want to love him so much but he wants nothing to do with her. If anyone has been through this or knows how best to handle this basenji/baby dynamic all advice is welcomed and greatly appreciated! Thanks!
