Right on! My Basenji is a mix breed as well, and I also adopted him. He is an absolute handful, but one of the best parts of my day is when I get home and see how he excited he is that dads home. And yeah… as far as chew toys, I have not found a single one that he can't destroy in less than 5 minutes. The best toy I've gotten him was a coil of rope that I tied into knots. lol, be prepared to pick up little pieces of his victims every day.

I just adopted a Basenji mix from the humane society five days ago and I am so happy. I went to the humane society on my lunch break one day, as I had planned on adopting a dog. There were about 30 to 40 puppies/dogs and she immediately caught my attention. She is reserved and affectionate, but also a little stubborn. In some ways she reminds me of a cat. I have owned 1 pitbull/rottweiler mix and 2 german shepherds in the past, so she is definitely different.
They anticipate her to be around 1 yr old and said she was brought in as a stray. She is completely white,but her face and ears are brindle and also has a patch of brindle at the base of her back. Her tail curls up, but it is not fluffy like the pure bred Basenjis. I can see things will be challenging in the training dept, but she is adorable. I have only heard her make the "woof sound" and she whines a little when she wants attention.
I am sure I will learn a lot about this breed from reading the forum and will post a picture soon.
tlbuddy and Cali;)
