Beautiful dogs! Who is the breeder(s)?

Oh, and Welcome to the forums! 🙂

Basenji Mix

Very interesting pictures! They're all in action! Welcome to the Forums. Also, I like your new camera - mine is on the "blink". What brand of camera do you have, if you don't mind my asking - I need a new one.

Welcome. You have beautiful dogs.

Great pictures.. welcome…. and love the Tri on top of the Red dog... as I say... "Tri's Rule"!

A panasonic fmz 5 megapixel. A great camera!

Out tri is very naughty, more typical dog like where the Red's lineage is her great grandmother is one of the imports from Africa in the 70's. She's a very effecient bunny & bird killer. The Tri does not know how to kill and either plays with things to death or gets bitten up really bad by squirrels he catches.

They live in AZ now, correct?

No, New Mexico.

We miss them. Great people.

😃 I knew it was one of those states… and yes they are great people, have met them at dogs shows a few times...

They trained us humans as well. Spent a lot of time in dog training & showing with them. My son did Jr Showmanship with our male. He would get close to first and just before judging he would act

Avongara Imba Tena(fido) is a grandchild from the stock brought out in 1990.

You really see the difference in our dogs. The tri is more domesticated -like, as a Basenji can be, but the African lineage female is text book basenji.

Good looking B's what are their registered names?

Not sure I understand this comment?

Domesticated Tri male, likes to play Fetch, not so afraid of water, does not know how to kill or hunt, Not really aloof with strangers. Follows me around everywhere, very closely (tripping over him). likes to ride on the end of our kyak on a lake.

Female basenji w/African lineage- Hates water with a passion. Will not go anywhere near a boat on water. Instinctively hunt & kills with precision, like watching a wild animal hunt. Instinctivley seems to know to bite the head/off/throat to kill it, quickly. Loves to climb. Will not go near any stranger, very cautious. Will not follow you around. She could care less.
No interest in fetch, but loves to rip apart plush like plucking the feathers off a chicken. She is just what you would expect if I had a pet skunk or other tamed wild animal, that's more her to a tee.

The Tri color is my buddy dog, he enjoys being with people directly. He comes when called, he's more like a typical dog. Plays fetch.

Throw the ball or what ever for the female, she runs after it, grabs it, goes to another room to dismember it. He returns for more play

it could be just different personalities, but the when the Red female hunts, it's not coming out of experience. A switch is flipped in her. The males does not have a clue! The female catches adult birds as the fly up from the ground. Kills them with one bite. She's as close to wild as anything I have seen.
