What is your favorite color pattern?


  • The Christmas Ham: Miles


  • @lvoss:

    And even with that preference it didn't stop you from co-breeding a litter with a trindle sire. Having a preference for a color doesn't mean we can't appreciate a dog of a different color and even use those dogs in a breeding program.

    Exactly… Lisa!!! and proud to be a co-breeder/co-owner!!!!


  • I also prefer not a lot of white, especially on the face…

  • My first intro to basenjis was a very regal B/W that came with my husband into our marriage. He was awesome and is still greatly missed. Now we have a male R/W. He is a big boy and has a pretty face. Red's definitely show off their wrinkles and assests more. Then there is our tri she is a devil dog indeed. So having had three different colors our conclusion is the black basenjis act different than the red. She acts like the B/W and nothing like the R/W. It is somethimes very scary how much she's like the B/W. We usually say" Welcome back Oreo".
    So for me its tri and for my husband it just has to be a basenji. There are no other dogs as far as he is concerned


  • What I do think is interesting is that when I've had a litter of mixed color - the same colors move to be together almost from the beginning. I've had it with R&W and Brindle, RW &BW and RW and Tri - eyes aren't even open and off they go to find their 'color mates'.


  • Yes, me too…. I had a litter of 6, 3 reds, 3 Tris... and all the time the reds were together and the tris were together... my Mickii was an only Tri... in a litter of three, 2 reds, 1 Tri... she was always by herself... 😞


  • I've never met a Basenji that I didn't like whatever color they happened to be. :p
    In looking back,:rolleyes: I also can't imagine any of them any other color than what they already where.
    Mother Nature's choice of color has always been right on in my opinion.:D


  • My favourite colour is R/W without too much white on the face as it can make it look too wide. I also like the tri's but only if they have defined clear markings and a nice rich tan. B/W's are probably my least favourite colour purely because you can't see the expression as clearly. My next one might be a brindle if it has nice markings.

    Maybe it is because I live with black and whites but I have never thought of their faces as less expressive. I love their heads.

    I love the b/w heads too. I think the wrinkles are a big part of the expression and I can see those clearly on the b/w male better than I can see them on the brindle male.

    I never thought much of the b/w's…...till I got one.....or two.:rolleyes: 😃
