Hi - I just signed up partly because I just love basenjis (mine in particular) and because my basenjis do not love each other. I hoped that through the forums I might get some helpful suggestions on how to get my dogs back together again. Right now they live on separate floors in my house and when they get together unexpectedly, there'a a bad fight - my female (Rosie) wants the house to herself and attacks the male (Willie). I can work them up to being together on leashes outside and they can run together at the beach, but in the house it's a different story. I know it will take training, and I've had them tested for thyroid, but I'm having the tests re-evaluated by someone else who's an expert in the field. They're both good dogs on their own - we've had some issues with Willie with aggression, but with training, he's come a long way. He's such a funny boy. Somewhat aloof, but a real clown - and he loves the cats - 2 in particular are his best friends.
Rose is a real cuddler and is very flirty and funny - she gets left out of a lot in the family because she's on the bedroom floor and we don't spend as much time there, so she gets to sleep with us. She's much more hyper than Willie, but she knows how cute she is.
Any suggestions are welcomed. I was going to give one away, but I just can't do it.
