A lot of people mistake him for a full bred pit. When we got him from the >>pet adoption fair, we were told that he was a Basenji, and not a pit. There >>is a distinction. He doesn't look a pit at all to me. He's not mean at all >>either
Weird. Pits don't look at all like Basenjis.
and Pits are not mean either, unless their owners have trained them or encouraged such behavior.
Pits are naturally friendly, generally well-behaved dogs that have gotten bad press due to poor owners.
Just so you know, onions are bad for dogs
That's what I've heard recently too.
Although when my dog was very ill about five years ago –near death due to an apparent poisoning -- chicken broth with garlic and onions was all she could keep down. Vet was sure she'd have to be euthanized, it was that bad. But we brought her back with "soup" a TBSP at a time and licking ice cubes.
Maybe it's just "one of those things", like the fact that chocolate can kill a dog, but I have friends whose three dogs LIVE for M&Ms every day. And Hershey's bars when they can steal them.
