What an impressive girl!! She is gorgeous and definately basenji. At least the vets KNEW what she was!!! Congratulations on the new family member and I thank you for adopting her!!!
This same shelter had a dog listed as an "Alaskan Malamute" mix. I called the dog over, and with one look, I turned to my roommate and said- That is NOT a Malamute. It was a beautiful black and white Akita. How these people can confuse these dogs is beyond me… And they have one labeled as a Pit Mix, but I know it isn't, and they won't listen to me. That one sucks, because a lot of people can't have Pits and that is probably keeping that beautiful dog from being rescued.
I'm a big fan of rescuing animals, and after Lucy came into my life, I've been looking at other Basenjis. There is a Basenji/Pit mix at the same shelter I got Lucy from, and if it's still there when I get my house in August, I might go back for it.
Thank you for all the welcomes! I'm learning a lot so far. At least I know now that my Lucy is just "being a Basenji" and isn't just plain crazy.
