As the title might suggest I am reaching to your fine community for help in the identification of a rescue we adopted.
She is a year and six months now and a lovely girl. They told us she was a pit, and she almost looked the part as a 3 month old puppy.
I have owned pitbuls and she is definitely not a full blood. Isa (her name: means strong willed) has a lot of the basenji nuances but she can bark. Though it is very quiet and a bit gravel/hoarce.
She does not yodel but does vocalize a lot. We came to the conclusion she might be part basenji when I came home from work and my husband claimed she had the weirdest howl he ever heard! He called it her death howl. He was in another room when I pulled up a video of the basenji howl. He came almost running and pointed at my screen and proclaimed "that's the death howl!"
I am hoping to put a definitive finger on what she is.
Thank you for sitting through my ramble and for your help.
Oh, and she is 35 lbs, 18 in long, 18 in high. Measured from the shoulder for height and from chest to back huanch for lenght.
