Something interesting popped up on my google news feed this morning... a Basenji Shepherd mix in need of a forever home. The colors aren’t anywhere close, but those ears... I was looking at those ears thinking “I’ve seen those recently. Where did I see those? Then it hit me. Mazzy!
I tend to agree with you, @Zande. Face is different. His snout is thicker. From the bridge of the nose back is a little interesting though. The shape of the eyes and I’m definitely seeing a few wrinkles. Still, the tail. There’s no curl in that tail at all.
@melduff, having a rescue is always a puzzle that comes with missing pieces. We were always confident that our rescue pup was in fact a Basenji, so we tested for Fanconi and PRA, but not for breed. Our missing pieces were we never knew what his life was like before we got him, and that drove us nuts! He became the topic of many speculative conversations.
DNA test results should be fun!
@melduff I for one think this is FANTASTIC news! You guys are so lucky! You have a one of kind super dog with the papers to prove it. Walks around the neighborhood and trips to the dog park are going to be very much fun...
Friendly neighbor: Oh, she's so cute! What kind of dog is she?
You: Thanks you so much. Why, she's a Staffy Chow Lab Rott Russell Husky. (Ya haff ta memorize that)
Thanks a bunch for letting us know. Very much enjoyed your thread.
