Basenji pictures needed for Research Project!


  • Hello Basenji Community,

    my name is Simon and I am a Master Student from Leiden University, The Netherlands. I am currently working on a research project in which we are comparing ancient and modern dog breeds on differences in a few facial features. For this, we are creating a online study for which we need head-shots (face pictures) of various dog breeds, one of them being Basenjis. Because we have a few criteria on how these pictures must be shot (due to standardisation requirements), most pictures we found online are not ideal.

    The criteria:

    1. The whole face is clearly visible
    2. Details in the eyes (iris and pupil) are clearly visible (light reflection is okay, as long as it is not too strong)
    3. The dog is purebred
    4. The picture is not taken at an extreme angle (dog's eye level is ideal)
    5. No accessories and collars
    6. The dog's mouth is closed, with a neutral look (not strictly necessary)

    That is why I would like to ask whether anyone here has pictures following these criteria or would be able to make some pictures according to the criteria. My research partner and I would be very thankful for any help that we can get from the community!

    Thank you in advance for your time.

    I don't know if anyone told you but your files were too big and didn't load.


  • I reduced the size and posted one in a later posting. Thanks!
