Hey Basenji lovers,
My new adopted mutt appears to be a basenji mix (dna test pending, but he sure has the look & many of the characteristics).
One thing I've noticed is that he's absolutely OBSESSED with cleaning his feet. He probably does it 5 times a day, getting the dirt out from underneath every individual nail.
At first I thought allergies, infection, anxiety, but the vet couldn't identify any definitive medical problems, and he isn't causing damage the way I've seen anxiety-induced foot chewing result in.
So now I'm wondering-- could this be a breed thing? Anyone else experience this behavior?
