I forgot to add he’s 27 pounds at almost 6 months.
Watch him bark. Basenjis do have a sound like a bark or a cough which is a single note (noise) and ends with the mouth open. Other canines bark and the mouth ends up closed.
He looks very Basenji like to my eye but a DNA test will confirm it. Whatever he turns out to be, you are both lucky ! He for finding a forever home and you for finding such a smart young man !
Enjoy many years together !
He's most certainly got a lot of Basenji in him and could possibly 'pass'!! Joking apart, check out his bark - the noise is made differently to other dogs as Sally has explained. He seems rather big for a basenji and his coat looks rather longer.. Does his tail curl over his back? Its loose from the photograph but Basnjis will stand like that at times. Whatever he looks a lovely boy.
