They also need to have plenty of available things they are allowed to chew on! They are not a dog that can be allowed to get bored while unattended, not if you value your shoes, pencils, pillows, chair legs. . . .
Awesome breed,though! No doubt about it. I'm glad I stumbled into them.
I'd always heard about them when I was a kid,but it was just that they were "those African Barkless dogs". That's all I knew.
I'm hooked now though.
Two years ago Bloodhounds were my favorite dog. Now it's Basenji all the way! There are just no other dogs like them.
