My name is Blair, and I have a Tan & White Basenji named Nouriega (Nouri for short). I've had him for about 3 years, and he's about 5 years old. He loves liver & rice, although we do give him dog food. My mom always makes extra liver & onions w/gravy for him. He also loves hot dogs & mustard!
He was basically housebroken we we got him, but we have the hardest time walking him. He still likes to pull us down the street. So if anyone out there has a suggestion, we would love to hear from you.
A lot of people mistake him for a full bred pit. When we got him from the pet adoption fair, we were told that he was a Basenji, and not a pit. There is a distinction. He doesn't look a pit at all to me. He's not mean at all either! he will bark at people walking by our yard, etc, just like any other dog would, but he wouldn't harm a flea. He's a good dog, and is truly loved by everyone who meets him.
We have a small family. It's just me, my mom, and Nouri. He's my brother and my best friend.
