Normally a dog's immune system keeps the mites in check, but some breeds, like your Basenji, develop an overabundance of these mites. In mild cases, pet owners may notice a few dry, irritated, hairless lesions. These often occur on the face or feet and may or may not be itchy. Secondary skin infections may occur.
But comedy aside, dog boots perform a necessary function Boots protect your dog's sensitive paws from the ice and snow as well as other cold-weather hazards such as road chemicals and salt. Read on for the benefits of boots, and get some great tips for getting your dog to wear boots
I own five basenjis. Two yodel until you have a headache and my female barks. She always did. Short clipped barks. I also researched the breed before getting my first and she is an excellent dog. My third basenji was a handful. Three years later and he has stopped his destructiveness etc. It was a hard three years. Lol. You never know with a basenji. Greatest breed. Loyal, active, funny but some require ALOT of patience.
