What is your favorite color pattern?

I have always wanted a perfect (in my eyes) deep red and white male. With a big white blaze up his face.

He would be my ideal. It is a great thing that he isnt great with cats (not listed, but Im not asking:) ) Because he would already be at my house.

But, now I am very partial to the open faced tri with a small white blaze. Why, because I am the lucky one who has one of these funky looking guys. And because I love him 🙂
He's my favorite now, because he is mine!

Here is a picture of Squiggy with my Mom's BRAT Petey.

(I will add a picture later)

I prefer the reds w/NO blaze on the face, like Jazzy. I think the blaze takes away from the eyes. But that's not to say that Keoki {deep red w/blaze} isn't absolutely STUNNING. 😉

I do think it is amazing that I managed to get the two most beautiful Basenjis in the world . . . . 😃

My favorite is tri's hands down, but really love them all. I get way more comments on our tri than the red and she is just a beautiful. Although more people seem to fear tri's, & dark colored dogs, I have noticed.

I do really love larger muscular red male basenji's with small eyes & ears, the just look really bad a@#. Wrinkles just dont show as well on anything other than reds.

Tri is hands down with me also…. love the little "bandit" faces with the eye pips... plus the fact that Tris are "wicked" and "goofy" all at the same time

While my Hollie is a brindle, I really love the look of the b & w. They are all striking creatures!!!

I like the exotic look of the brindles.

I like the formal flashy look of the b/w and Tri.

I always ask people which of ours they are most impressed with and most have said the big R/W Max. To me the reds look like little deer.

I have really fallen in love with our b/w's for their personality…....they just seem more needy or dependant on us than the others.

I agree the R/W look like deer & very cute (especially mine :D)..but the brindle are very cute (espeically mine hee :D) but I have to say that the B/W I find them stunning…not sure why and initially they were not my fav.

I was like you that B/W was not my favorite as the B/W's I had seen were not that great looking till recently when I saw the above thread and this dog here-

Also what's weird is she has ONLY two males!

@I:

Funny, but you dont have Squiggy :p
Isnt it great that we all think ours is the best, cutest… That just proves that basenjis as a whole are the best dogs around!
However, when I went home for lunch and saw my bolster pillows on my sitting room bed all shredded, I would have easily given him to you:D

I think I would love to have one of each color!

😃 How can you not love a Tri?….

Sahara is my favorite color, and of course she is R & W, but I must say that B & W are my second fav. Arti is the most handsome B & W I have seen followed by Jasper of Basenji Park. If I were to have another B it would be Black and White if I could resist another Sahara, haha!!!!!!!!!! You gotta love these dogs b/c they sure can destroy your stuff, Sahara has that's for sure. I found chew marks this week on my wood daybed in my guest room, I have chew marks everywhere. I use bitter apple but it has not worked, any suggestions?

I love all the colors pretty equally…but if I *had to choose a favorite, I think I would choose tri, with a small white blaze 🙂

I love-love-love the red and whites by far, with white wiskers. I think with the lighter brighter color of the red you can see more details of the dog like wrinkles, muscles, things like that (especially in photos). Alote of white on the body is cool too. I like the basenji's that have more white than they are supposed to. Tri's are my second fav.Although B&W's look very shiney in the sun not really into that color.I always hear that black dogs at the shelters are really hard to adopt out because to most people the light bright or unique colors (blues) stand out. All the colors are pretty neat though, as long as its a basenji the dog is A-O-K in my book! As far as brindle I'm usually not into that with the exception of "one" that I met along time ago it was a deep red with thin neat SOLID black stripes on the back all separated and parallel to each other. So pretty! I guess I just really like the red and white because they are traditional and I have read that you see them the most in Africa!

Black and white is the color I was first attracted to and is my favorite but I have come to really like all the colors.

Youngandtired-actually Jasper is a brindle…it's Willy that's the GORGEOUS b/w 😃 😃
