I own five basenjis. Two yodel until you have a headache and my female barks. She always did. Short clipped barks. I also researched the breed before getting my first and she is an excellent dog. My third basenji was a handful. Three years later and he has stopped his destructiveness etc. It was a hard three years. Lol. You never know with a basenji. Greatest breed. Loyal, active, funny but some require ALOT of patience.
Hello to everyone!
Very excited to find this site! Can't wait to read everything!

welcome to the forum – do you have basenjis or thinking about getting one or three?
We have a Basenji brindle boy who found us about 6 years ago. His name is King Tut and he does rule our house! We also have a terrier mix, Pepper. She is 11 years old. And thanks to my son, we have a 1 1/2 yr old Weimaraner, Maddie. I never planned on having such an odd group of dogs but we love them dearly. I didn't know a thing about Basenji's until Tut showed up at our house. We went through a couple weeks of "there is no way we can keep this wild animal" to falling in love with him and worrying that someone would show up and claim him. No one did and 6 years later we are still adjusting to all his Basenji mannerisms. I browse the internet often trying to find out if he is crazy but then I just get confirmation that he is just a Basenji.
