Any ideas of his mix

The vet can do a DNA, to find out what mix he is, I do not know what the cost is....

Vet's don't actually do breed identification DNA themselves, you have to get a kit yourself - Wisdom Panel or Embark - then send it in. I've used Wisdom Panel panel a few times, cost about $80 5 years ago. Embark is more expensive.

@rugosab not sure just as yet. Haven't bathed him. He's definitely not a stinky boy. He keeps himself pretty clean, even cleaning his paws after a walk.

Just curious about his breed. Our baby girl we had for 14 years was sharpei dacshhound, along with other things. We learned the sharpei are prone to cancer. We cooked organic food for her and bought her special vitamins. We had her 17 years. Just like to know any issues he may have later in life that we can help prevent0_1589672636937_received_265698314137886~3.jpeg0_1589673244822_IMG_20170223_222825.jpg

Definitely see Shar Pei!

@giza1 yes. She was a sharpei dachshund mix. Her breed was very prone to cancer, which took her anyway at the age of 17. We had her on a special home cooked diet to help prevent and then treat cancer. That's the only reason we're curious about our new babies breed. Would just like to know anything he may be predisposed to health wise.

I understand, but you do have to realise that 17 is a fantastic age for a dog to get to regardless of breed. Many Basenjis get to that age.

@rugosab no doggy odor at all. He's so funny. He even rubs his ears like a cat with both paws lol. He's a catdog😂

O. K. those are both Basenji traits. Genotype isn't always reflected in Phenotype, so who knows?

definitely some basenji
