Hello all. I just adopted my first basenji (tri, 11 mo) girl, Alani last weekend. I'd have to say that so far she has not been the typical basenji that I've read so much about. She’s very laid back, likes to fetch (only 2 or 3 times before she starts questioning why she’s brining it to me if I’m just going to throw it again) and hasn’t gotten into anything she knows she’s not supposed to (I’m sure that’s just a matter of time). We have a trash can on the side of our island that doesn’t have a lid or anything and she has yet to grab anything out of it even when there’s food sitting on top! She's potty trained, knows sit, stay and come (for the most part). She doesn’t talk too much, she will baroo when she’s mad or talking back to us (which is hard when your trying to tell her no and then start to laugh.) Just overall a very good girl.
Sorry so lengthy but wanted to let you all know that I've been reading posts for a while to get an idea as to what to expect. I've enjoye a lot of what everyone has said and am excited to be part of the group.:D
